Cool School Work

This past week in preschool, the boys talked about Earth. During class, the teachers will ask a question for the class to answer and they will write it down for all to see. This was a couple of highlighted answers posted for this past week.


Cameron’s Class:


“The water has dolphins.”

Cameron LOVES dolphins so that answer was no surprise


Kiefer’s Class:


“It’s something that keeps you from floating in to outer space.”

I thought that was pretty creative of Kiefer to say. …and so true!


The End Is Near…

That’s right. the end of my externship is well within reach. In fact it’s this coming Monday! Well, of course that depends on the weather. It’s supposed to snow tomorrow and be icy throughout the weekend. If that’s the case, then I might not be able to make it to work on Monday and will have to go Tuesday. That’s ok. I enjoy it there.

One of the things that makes it enjoyable there is the compliments I get from the doctors, the patients, and even my colleagues. They are nice to me and they do give me advice that helps me do well in my job. Though they never asked me to join them for lunch 🙁 That’s ok, I do like to use that time to talk to Jason. It’s one of the things I look forward to during the day…talk to my husband about how my day is going. I just feel I’m in the right field. Read more


Well here I am again…

Yesterday I came home after my supervisor gave me a very questionable but good report on my weekly evaluation. I decided to call my career adviser from school about it. Turned out, my supervisor had just called and told her that she could not supervise me because she does not have the time to watch me. Also, on a funny coincidental note, a family practice office called looking for an intern to fill immediately. At the time I called, they had closed, but they are in a place I like to work and a practice I’m interested in working with. So, as luck may have it, I may have another place to work without worrying about taking time off. Read more


First Week New Term

What an interesting week it it has been. My Medical Office Administration class is small. The teacher is very talkative. He’s generally a fast talker but I feel I can follow along. I wasn’t sure we hit it off the first day though. He started talking about wholistic health and the history of medicine. I don’t feel he completely gets the concept of wholistic health. He seems to think it’s about believing it’ll work that makes it work. I don’t agree at all! Some things work whether you believe it or are open to it or not. Massage works for example, even if you don’t believe in it’s medical benefits. A non-believer of massage’s benefits walks in to a massage business with a sore neck with limited neck rotation. The therapist finds a knot in his upper traps and uses trigger point therapy, stretching, and some heat. That same non-believer walks out of the office feeling much better and is able to turn his head either direction. He may still walk out of there, not believing that massage has any medical benefits, but he’s sure feeling much better than he was before!

I actually talked with him about that the next time the class got together, his attitude towards me was not what I thought it was. Although I don’t feel he still understands fully what wholistic medicine is about, I do understand that he had no problem with me being a massage therapist. I didn’t get into his attitude before, but it seemed on the first day that he didn’t like the ‘alternative’ medicine and that he was uncomfortable knowing that I was a massage therapist. Anyhoo, It seems like it’s going to be a good class. Read more


The Teachers Posted my grades!

I got a nice surprise today as I looked through my email. A teacher emailed me telling me he posted my grades for the math class already. I went ahead and took a look, and I got an A for both courses. YAY!

I’m not too surprised about the math grade since I enjoy math so much, but I had my concerns for my Freshman Orientation class. The teacher talked to me, however, this past Tuesday and told me he’d like to show off my folder we all put together throughout the term. I made this folder look really nice too. I copied a painting I painted in college…well part of it. It was too big to fit and I thought a hint of the painting would look nice anyhow. Inside I arranged my work very neatly. All assignments on the right side. Any projects were put on the right side. Well most of the projects. The smaller projects were among the assignments where the teacher wanted them. Well either way, I found out I also got an A on my term paper. That was about Multiple Sclerosis and how it might effect a woman who is pregnant and after her pregnancy physically, psychologically, and emotionally as well as how it can effect her family. It was only a 5 page paper, but I am rather proud of it! Read more
