  • I Graduated!

         I graduated!  I cannot believe that it is over.  I’m done with school.  I’m done with fieldwork.  It is all up to me now.  It hasn’t sunk in yet.  I have been waiting for this for over 2 years and now it’s finally here.     Going back to school at 29 years old was the ...

  • Do You Get the Flu Shot?

         The subject of the influenza vaccination has come up a few times this term amongst my class mates and it is a debate: do the benefits of the flu shot outweigh the potential side effects?  We are of course not only talking about the sore arm you may get after to flu shot, but the types of side effects listed as ...

  • Preparing for the New Semester

          By this time next week classes will have started.  I’ve been busy trying to enjoy my last little bit of break while also trying to prepare for the new semester and the start of the program.  So far, I’m on track; I’ve registered for classes, bought all my text books (that have been assigned anyways), bought ...
