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
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!
