Rain, Rain, Go Away!

Top -outing

It has been raining off and on the past couple of weeks, making it almost impossible to keep up with the weeding in the garden! The rain has also postponed the planting of the botanical garden on campus until next weekend, weather permitting. In the meantime we have the plants and manpower ready to go!

Writing and More Writing

This week was exceptionally exhausting. I spent a lot of extra time in the clinic writing charts, which seems to be my biggest struggle with Student Clinic. After seeing a patient there is an enormous amount of paperwork that needs to be done. I am slowly learning how to concisely put things together, but my poor hand has never done so much writing! If I could only write as fast as I can type… 

Writing seems to be the theme of this trimester. Every class has a writing assignment attached to it in some form. For our advanced ND Business and Jurisprudence course, one of our assignments is to prepare an article on any naturopathic therapy. The article is to be written in terms that anyone can understand. We are to make the paper "web ready," meaning it needs to have links to outside websites and include pictures. The topic I chose was the many uses of the botanical lavender. I discovered a few new ways to incorporate the fragrant herb into cooking and teas, and also add a few drops of lavender essential oil on your pillow before bed at night to encourage restful sleep. It will be interesting to see what other students choose to write about. 

Much Needed R&R

After a long week of class, I went out with friends for some much needed sushi. It was nice to get dressed up and leave the books at home for a while. With midterms starting next week, we deserved a night out!

I can't believe it is Week 6 of 15 already… where does the time go! As for now, I am off to make a list of things to do this week… Keeping organized this trimester is an absolute must!
