December is now upon us and at the end of every year, just like at the end of every trimester, I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed. Many have celebrated the Thanksgiving Holiday in new, safe and creative ways, and some have already begun decorating and making plans for Christmas. Before we all know it, we will be exchanging various well wishes for a successful and very Happy New Year and 2020 – with all its challenges – will have come to an end.
With that said, it is also Week 13 of the current trimester, and many are now also preparing to take Final, Practical and Written Exams. Others in the NUHS community are successfully concluding their academic journeys and looking toward NUHS’ Fall 2020, Graduation Day with both excitement and nostalgia – and perhaps, with a little bit of sadness, as one chapter ends and another is set to begin.
Now that my Trimester 8 is coming to an end, so is the conclusion of Phase 2 of the Chiropractic Medicine curriculum. Just like the year and the terms pass, I am looking back on the phases that both have been, and will be completed. In the spring of 2021, I will enter Trimester 9 and with it, Phase 3. Once again, I will be in disbelief of how time has advanced and that the end will be in sight.
Please feel free to share your thoughts on the year, the trimester, or the conclusion of your academic journey!
