Dr Chandrasekhar Sankurathri was a great man and it would be hard to find somebody who could lead in his shoes.

Comment on Private Practice Club Dinner by Dominick Maino. OD, MEd http://blog.ico.edu/private-practice-club-dinner/#comment-130848 Wed, 04 Feb 2015 21:22:00 +0000 http://blog.ico.edu/?p=4740#comment-130848 This is wonderful. Just remember nothing is free. Research shows that even being given something as inconsequential as a pen as a gift influences you. As long as you realize this, you should choose wisely in the future.

Comment on Do What You Love! by Eva http://blog.ico.edu/do-what-you-love/#comment-128358 Wed, 28 Jan 2015 18:05:15 +0000 http://blog.ico.edu/?p=4721#comment-128358 I’ve had the exact same thoughts from time to time, but all to often I shove them aside and turn back to the ever-present grindstone. Sometimes it is more encouraging to hear it from another person, even if they’re someone you’ve never met.
I just wanted to say thank you for your words. :)

Comment on Long Distance Relationships by GT http://blog.ico.edu/long-distance-relationships/#comment-124152 Fri, 16 Jan 2015 04:52:10 +0000 http://blog.ico.edu/?p=4784#comment-124152 This was such a beautiful post. I’m in the midst of a very difficult decision myself – whether to pursue a PhD at an institution where it will mean living away from my parents and being away from my boyfriend for more than 4 years. It’s such an incredibly touch decision and reading this absolutely touched my heart – thank you for such a realistic glimpse of the ups and downs of a relationships, and how worth it it is to nurture a relationship with one you truly care about. All the best of luck with your studies – your girlfriend’s a very lucky woman, you two seem to have a very bright future together ahead of you! :)

You’re definitely not alone.. I entered ICO in a 5 yr relationship that lasted 5 months as a long distance relationship. In the end, I had to do what was best for me. Good luck with everything! The 4 years at ICO go by far too quickly!

Comment on A Day on the Lake by Kyle Ruiz http://blog.ico.edu/a-day-on-the-lake/#comment-119935 Tue, 06 Jan 2015 18:12:04 +0000 http://blog.ico.edu/?p=3368#comment-119935 Everything Emily mentions in this read is absolutely accurate. There is nothing like taking a day off and going jet skiing and spending some time on the water. We own a used jet ski repair shop in Ottawa Lake, MI and I agree that the Michigan lakes are amazing in the summer time.

If you have a chance this summer to get on the water and salvage a part of your time to go jet skiing I highly recommend it. Thanks for the great read. :)
