Today’s post is dedicated to the biggest thing they don’t teach you about in co-op prep class.
Yeah, shoes. I’d never really thought it through that I’d be on my feet for 8 hours at a time pretty much standing in one spot, so good shoes are a must. It’s kind of hard to get away with sneakers with business casual, so here’s a quick co-op shoe survival guide.
Rockports: One of the two pairs of shoes I wear on a daily basis is a pair of Rockports. They’re basically sneakers disguised as dress shoes which is a wonderful thing at work. They weigh next to nothing and are super comfortable to stand in for hours.
Eccos: My other daily pair of shoes is a pair of Ecco boots. Also very comfortable, but they weigh a lot more and don’t have as much arch support, but it’s a good trade off for the ridiculously soft soles.
Danskos: Yeah, clogs. I haven’t tried them yet, but some of my nursing friends and pharmacists I work with swear by them. When it comes to support, they can’t be beat.
Timberlands: Honorable mention here, mine bother my heel when I’m standing in them all day, but some other people love them.

Sorry for the long absence, it’s been a crazy few weeks between moving, vacation, and starting on co-op! Here’s the trailer version of what’s been up in my life recently:
- I moved! Twice!
- I ate some really good fries at a place called Duck Fat
- I climbed a hill
- I took some photos
- I started co-op!
So, stay tuned for further details on all those fun events. Here’s some photos to tide you over in the meantime. Bonus points to anybody who can guess where these are all from.

I managed to take advantage of the great weather yesterday to put this together. Welcome to Northeastern!
