You see this pic? When I went grocery shopping at super Wally World I picked up a 2 pack of these. I have not tried it yet but come next week I'm taking one of the shots and see what happens. I picked these shots up because Elon has lost their minds!
I thought having homework before classes started was crazy!
I thought the amount of projects, papers, and presentations they threw on top of that work once we started was crazy!
Only to find out that wasn't NATHAN!
Instead of semesters we have modules. The first module was 4 weeks. Monday started the 1st week of the second mod which lasts 12 weeks. Mod 3 is also 12 weeks in length. Us rookies had been hearing from various 2nd and 3rd years that mod 1 is the easiest module in the entire program.......THEY WERE NOT LYING! It's not that the content is hard, it's the sheer volume of stuff we need to know. OMG! Just OMG! I've been trying to stay on top of the game but it's tough. Last night I only got in about 30 minutes of studying before my body made me go to sleep. Soon as my head hit the pillow I was out! One of my professors told us from the jump, before even talking about her expectations, gave us a mini speech about the importance of sleep because things were about to hit the fan! *smh* Another prof was like "this is the time in the program where most students begin to feel overwhelmed. We are going to ask a lot of you but I promise, if you hang on till December it will be all worth it." Soon as he said that I had movie like flashbacks of all the PTs and PT students I dealt with pre Elon telling me that the first year is an mf'er and if I can get through it the rest would fly by. This is what I wanted. This is what I need to do in order to create opportunities in my dream profession, but geez!
Yesterday in gross anatomy we cut one of the donors into large prosections (remove the head, a leg, an arm, then cut the body straight down the middle, remove organs) Can we say cool? We went a step beyond Dr. G! LOL! The smell was...different, but the experience was awesome in and of itself. We get to do smaller prosections with the parts we removed and if our gross anatomy teacher doesn't like what the donor had to give, we get to cut another one! I am hoping we can and that I get to cut off the head or straight down the body! Don't judge me!
On another note, next weekend about 20 of us are going to see a NHL game. I am excited because the Carolina Hurricanes play not to far from my place so I don't have to commute to socialize with my peers. YAY! Since we have a large group we are going to have our group recognized on the screen thing! YAY! I am hoping to get a picture of that. This will also be my very first time tailgating. I am kinda excited about that too! Tailgating and going to a hockey game are things I get to check off my list as far as sports go. *thumbs up* I have not seen an NBA game live, freestyle motor cross, or roller derby (I think that's what it's called) so there are still plenty of sports and sports related things for Pooka and I to experience.
I think the Colts will win Sunday, but the story would be much sweeter if the Saints win.
Ever since December I have been cold and it takes a good bit to warm me up. Everyday I sit in class with my coat on, sometimes with gloves too. Today before class one of my professors asked me was I cold all the time, even when people are warm. I said yes. She then asked me if I ever got my thyroid checked out. After I said no she said that it's a simple blood test and my general doctor could do it. I may have to look into that because until December I was very hot natured so this is abnormal for me.
I paid off a big debt today! It took me a minute, but I did it! It is such a wonderful feeling getting a financial burden off my plate. I got plenty more on there, but little by little all I will have left are my student loans and a mortgage. Watch me!
