Spring break started this past weekend, which officially marks the halfway point of the semester. It's relieving to know that I've made it this far, but at the same time I can't believe we still have the hardest part of the semester to get through. As much as I would love a traditional spring break devoid of studying, I'm looking forward to being able to catch up with school work.
As each semester progresses, I can't believe how quickly all of it is flying by. When you're in the thick of things, it feels like these exams and this semester will never end. But when you get the rare chance to pick your head up, breathe and look at the bigger picture, you realize that school will be over before you know it. I was reflecting on this first year the other day, and the amount of knowledge that I have acquired is beyond anything I could have imagined, and there's so much more to come. It's exciting and scary all at the same time as we start to progress toward being clinicians instead of students.
I'm taking a few days off, but then it's back to the grindstone. My mind is eager for a break from PT, but deep down, I realize that I need to get back to work as quickly as possible. I hope everyone else out there gets to enjoy break, too.
