Sun, Study, and Socializing

Hello everyone! I know I've said it once, but I'll say it again: this weather is gorgeous! I am one of those people that thrive in sunshine, and my week's activities definitely reflected it.

It was Week 4 here at National, and with classes back in full gear, there was lots of studying to be done. One of the most challenging classes in Trimester 6 is "Imaging of Tumors," where we are learning about all the possible bone tumors and how to differentiate them on traditional X-rays, MRI, and other various imaging types. Learning pathologies like these can be intimidating, but it's also a true reflection of our chiropractic education at NUHS. It is both a challenge and a compliment to be bestowed with such a well-rounded curriculum that teaches us to be responsible physicians. Some chiropractors choose to have X-ray machines in their practice, and some choose to send patients out for imaging, but whatever the case, it is critical that we are trained to recognize the signs and symptoms of a more progressive disease such as skeletal tumors.

Outside of the classroom, this week was a blast! To kick-off the summer, Lambda Chi sorority had its sorority lunch, catered by Pinched Mediterranean Grill, a locally-owned restaurant offering gluten-free, freshly made food. All of the girls enjoyed the opportunity to get together and enjoy a fun lunch hour while discussing some upcoming events this trimester. The goal of Lambda Chi is to offer more opportunities for us to practice our adjusting skills outside of class, but it's also to foster meaningful friendships among the women of our profession. :)

On Friday night, students from our school attended the Tri Mixer at Gnarly J's and Rita's Roadhouse, which was a perfect way to end a busy school week and take a break from studying.

I spent my Saturday night at the Brad Paisley concert with some girls from school, and then all day Sunday laying by the pool and studying for upcoming midterms.

Overall, this was a very well rounded week of studying, sunshine, and social events that will have to last me until midterms are over. Time to really hit the books! Enjoy the week ahead!
