How do you know Christine: Med school buddies
Funny/silly memory with Christine: Christine and I were traveling from the UK to Ireland after our first year of med school. The travel involved a subway (which we missed by a split second), train (which we ended up taking the wrong one), and a ferry (which we missed, due to getting on the wrong train). Needless to say, everything that could have gone wrong that day went wrong, and we were left stranded in a ferry station in Wales overnight. We got a meager two or three hours of sleep that night, and we decided to get up at wee hours of the morning to go see the sunrise. It was a cold day (about low 50's) and all we had were summer clothes from our Rwanda trip. We took out everything we had in our backpack and layered it on to keep ourselves warm to see this sunrise (imagine PJ pants, with a summer dress on top, with another t-shirt on top, and then a hoodie on top of this with a towel used as a scarf). The rest of our trip went much more smoothly after this, but it was things like this where we found humor in some of the most seemingly horrible circumstances that make this friendship special to me.
Why this couple works: I've had the privilege of seeing Christine and Clark from the beginning from the first time they were eye-ing each other at our local coffee shop (harhar). I honestly can't think of a single instance when I realized that Christine and Clark work, but throughout the years,I've seen the relationship progress from periods of uncertainty to both sides truly caring and cherishing each other. They both have an adventurous spirit with a desire to see the world and I can't be more excited for the two of them!
