Immersion

If last weeks theme was feeling overwhelmed, this weeks theme is “I think I got this?” Note the slight lack of certainty. There is something about being surrounded by the student AT family who are all equally stressed about pretty much all the same things constantly that has brought back my cool, calmness. So much…

20 written exams, 8 practicals, and 6 papers later…

Another academic year has come to a close (FINALLY), and I am a proud survivor (sometimes thriver) of third year athletic therapy- a year renowned for being among the toughest. 27 exams total, in 10 courses- with countless hours spent practicing- on top of balancing field work in the clinic and the football fields, and…

Carrot at the end of the stick

“You’ve got that ‘march glaze’ about your eyes.. its that time of year for you students” Yep. Talk to any student right now and they’ll either give you a zombie-like reply and/or mumble something about “only 3 weeks left.. so close”. I know pretty much all my peers, as well as myself, are pretty much…

Tuesday night rambles

To continue my trend, check out where I was a year ago! Usually, on a Tuesday night, I’d be in bed by now. But since I somehow ended up consuming WAY too much caffeine today.. I need to do some typing to burn some energy. This nice weather we’ve been having is making me want…

Etc.

There’s a classic Manitoba blizzard blowing around outside, this was yesterday, a few hours before it started raining/snowing/blizzarding… luckily I got back to the city before that occured. AND it’s the first day of reading week…I think it’s time for an update, don’t you? First off, a year ago I was doing much crazier things then…

Turbulent 2012

Similar to previous years, seeing as I don’t make resolutions, here is a list of some of the most memorable moments of the past 12 months (in no particular order)! Meeting the people I met overseas. Especially all the distant relatives. To be made to feel at home in a country that is so far…

Pre-Exam Update

Ahhh it’s been a while. This is going to be short and sweet. It’s been a pretty stressful month, what with finishing classes of my first term and all that good stuff. But, after 5 exams.. I’m done! Until January. I have survived-so far- what many thought would be the killer of all semesters.. five…

Critical Instant

Two weeks left in the term?! How did this happen! I’ve been figuratively, and sometimes literally, smothered by projects, lab exams, and review that I’ve lost track of time. That being said, nothing is really new either. I’m almost nervous for December holidays to arrive because I’m not sure what I’ll do without the stress…

The Student Games

A thought popped into my head today while I was trying to decide between the $1.89/lb apples that I wanted, and the $.99/lb ones on sale that looked half as good (I picked the cheap, bruised ones), and again when I was watering down my cranberry juice (that I got on sale)) as to make…
