Here we are… coming up on a major crossroads (at least me and the rest of the 2nd of 3 year students at OCOM). Finals started up this week and continue pretty heavily into next week. Then after that’s all said and done, just to really drive it in, we have our Clinic Entrance Exams (I like to refer to them as the mini boards), which are as ominous as they sound. They mark the seperation of where you are a student in a classroom & where you’ve become an actual practicing intern in the OCOM clinic. It all happens so fast and I’m convinced all these tests are merely a lesson in stress management. The big test is two weeks from today and I’m trying to take a light-hearted stress free approach. I have the information, the spreadsheets & the notes. I’ve put in the time & I’ve studied my butt off for the past two years, so come Fall, I will be wearing my white coat treating people all on my own; with a supervisor of course! I absolutely can’t wait!
In the meantime to take my mind off of things I have been taking some extra hours working at the gym; which I LOVE and wish I had more time in every day to come play with KettleBells and offer my guidance and knowledge to our clients (www.spinachyou.com… Check it out!). They are in the process of filming a promo video for a Kettle-Bell workout DVD which is going to be rad, so be on the lookout for a sweet video with all our clients; me and the other trainers included snatching (it’s a kettlebell move 🙂 ) away. More word on that to come!
It’s easy to find other things to do when your list of things to do and to study is so long you don’t know where to start; I just found an awesome website that my mom sent me; Ode Magazine which is sure to make my list of favorites as well as a great way to procrastinate!
Until next time, wish me luck and be well!
