Trimester break is always paradoxical, as it is always seems a bit long and yet grudgingly brief. Nevertheless, it always proves to be a much-needed oasis of relaxation and thought amidst the vast sea of academia. It serves as time to catch up on much extracurricular reading because, somehow, it’s difficult to fit any Dostoyevsky in during the term.
The extra time on my hands also gave me ample opportunity to work off the extra pound or two that always seems to magically appear during finals week. I even got to play tourist in my own city when my parents came to visit for a few days. As life gets busier, finding time for family becomes increasingly important.

After sleeping as many hours per day as I possibly could, I managed to catch up on sleep the Sunday before classes resumed, so I showed up early on Tuesday, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. I’m excited for this trimester. It’s an even greater shift away from the classroom, towards more hands-on learning and application of all those words in a book. There’s Functional Rehab, Physical Diagnosis and Advanced Manual Therapy, just to name a few.

Stick with me throughout this trimester, and each week I plan on elaborating on a class that I’m taking. And, just as enthralling as the classes I’m taking, are the people who have embarked on this journey with me. One of my goals this trimester, and those to come, is to bring some of those people and their stories to life in this blog. I’m looking forward to seeing you all next week!
