My Last Fall Trimester

As I was getting ready to write my first blog post for this tri, I realized that this is going to be my last fall here at NUHS. I am trying to wrap my head around the idea that next fall is going to come sooner than I thought and I will be a licensed acupuncturist!

Until then, I'm back to my regular schedule with clinic shifts, classes and some work. Break has been of course, too short, and I am already missing home and my parents but at least I got to see them.

Can't really say I took time for myself or relaxed because I worked on my family and friends; I was just happy to see again what a difference acupuncture and herbs can make. Being far away from all the people that I love has never been easy for me and I'm actually starting to research if there's a way I can legally practice acupuncture back in Romania. Even if I might not do it right away, I would still like to know that there's a possibility if I decide on it.

I am excited to start studying herbal formulas and also preparing for Biomed board exam. This trimester is probably going to still feel like a roller coaster with so many herbal classes plus senior exam, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that a good diet, herbs, acupuncture, and hopefully more exercise will help me through all of it.

I am not part of the AOM club anymore since I don't really feel I'll have the time, so if any of you are interested in joining and helping out you can email me at

I wish you all an easy trimester and good luck with exams!
