Happy 2023 fellow readers! These last few weeks off from school have been absolutely fantastic. It was a very relaxing, and yet productive time. I was able to catch up with family, read a non-medical book for fun, continue fine-tuning the wedding details, and was sprinkled with love at my bridal shower. My best friends flew in for the weekend of the bridal shower and it was such a beautiful time. We had a total girls’ weekend reminiscing on undergraduate days, discussing our current jobs/research/schooling, and enjoying each other’s sense of humor. My mom and family friend threw me a splendid bridal shower filled with fun games, delicious foods, colorful decorations, and long-time family friends. After all the wedding planning, it was really nice to just relax and enjoy the day with family and friends. Just three more weeks until “I do!”
Other exciting news: I am finally an intern in clinic! Last week was our first week back on campus and entering the Tri-8 clinic phase. It felt rewarding to me to wear the white coats to clinic and feel as if I’ve earned my place there after all my hard efforts all these trimesters. Of course, we are all feeling slightly intimidated with the new expectations and the realization that we will finally be seeing patients, but it’s a thrilling time. We are finally putting everything we have learned into action and continuing to master our skills. If you’re a student or employee at NUHS or St. Petersburg College and in need of some care – be it chiropractic, acupuncture, nutritional, therapeutic, etc. – call or head over to the Health Educational Center (HEC) to make a clinic appointment! You’ll be in good hands.
