Wow, I haven’t posted in a while! I definitely needed some time off from my blog to focus on some other hobbies. Instead of writing, I started running more often and began playing tennis a few times a week with one of my classmates. I’m currently on a summer break from classes, so I have plenty of time to devote to writing!
I read through a similar post on Franish, who has blogged all throughout medical school. I know that copying ideas isn’t the most creative, but I enjoyed her posts so much that I wanted to create my own version for physical therapy school.
We had our first 6 week full-time affiliations during our winter semester, from January to mid-February. I was placed in an acute care setting, while others were in outpatient orthopedics or skilled nursing facilities. We were also in various locations, most of us spread throughout Maryland, but one classmate traveled as far as Virginia Beach.
I had my alarm set for 5:45, which wasn’t easy because it was still dark outside. I usually turned on my lamp and then closed my eyes for another fifteen minutes (bad habit, I know!)
I got the scented wax warmer as a gift (I think from Kohl’s), and I drew that picture of the frog in high school.
