I love to HATE April. It's the month where there's warm weather
but then NOT! It's a big tease for the amazing warm summer weather
that we're all longing for. Plus it's full of tons of allergies for
everyone. April 1st is my favorite day of my least favorite month
because it's full of surprises. I pride myself in the fact that I
am a BIG time gullible person. I got "April fooled" twice before
noon! First, my cousin told me her marriage ended! Second, my
brother told me he's not doing well in California and has to move
back to Chicago! Not good jokes at all but they thought it was
funny! Ha ha!
Final Trimester Push
As finals approach, all the professors feel like they want to
challenge us EVEN more by adding long papers to write, tedious
assignments to do that take forever but are worth a ½%, and case
studies to complete! Oh the joys of graduate level courses! It's
all fun, but boy is it VERY annoying. I feel like I'm a paper
writing machine at this point, although the VERY positive (and
reason) aspect is that I DID learn a lot. That's the point, right?
Duh, Miravone! But just wait until you get to this point where you
are freaking out about the gigantic list of finals and on top of
that you have to write long papers with a minimum of 10-12 research
This Sunday, my husband and I had the opportunity (with some
colleagues) to attend a women's health seminar held by Metagenics
concerning menopause, PCOS, and hormone imbalance in general. It
was so informative! Although we've learned all the bits and pieces
in school in multiple courses, it was very nice and refreshing to
see it all put together to be applied clinically.
The seminar made me feel more excited to start Student Clinic in
May, but nervous at the same time. My vision in our future clinic
is to specialize in women's and pediatric health especially after
attending this great seminar. However, those populations are the
most sensitive and complex for many different reasons, so I am
definitely nervous but excited all at once!
After the seminar (since we were in Chicago), we went to our
favorite Pho (Vietnamese Noodle soup) restaurant in Vietnam Town
called Pho 888. Amazing! It made the end of a long and tiring day
Overall, we had a good week and I'm still waiting on my third job
interview to get back to me! Keep your fingers crossed! Take care
Blissor: My husband and I have completed 30 days of p90X and are
moving into the second phase of the workout!
