This week has been such a long and trying week. My first tradeshow with Ellex kicked off this week at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons in San Diego. Luckily, everything went as planned, and everyone seemed happy with our work. Another convention was going on at the same time–the Democratic Convention with Obama, Hilary, and others, along with a huge crowd coming to support them. On my way to lunch one afternoon, I walked by my friend Luke, who happened to be attending the democratic convention, which as most of you know, I run into the most people in such random ways! Friday night I went out with Lucas and Eve, two friends from my time in Sydney. We went to the most delicious sushi restaurant in La Jolla, and it was fantastic. It was great to catch up and see them and talk about how things are going with everyone.
