  • 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 ...

  • OT Glasses

         One of my instructors has been telling us for months to put on our “OT glasses” and look at the world.  Most recently, we were told this when a student expressed concern that many of our level 1 fieldwork placements are not in facilities that offer occupational therapy.  We were all unsure of what to expect or ...

  • Semester Burn Out

    It happens every sememster, regardless of the class load or subjects, inevitably I get burnt out.  This semester it happened last week.  I have been completely unmotivated this week which is unfortunate because I have had a lot to do including a my first home evaluation that is due tomorrow.  It's almost done.  This has ...

  • Adaptation Projects

         I am working on some interesting assignments for school this week that has really gotten me excited. First of all, I had to make some sort of adaptive equipment. This was quite interesting and I had so many ideas! How many were practical, who knows, but I enjoyed coming up with the ideas. In the end I made a dressing ...

  • OTA Program Week 1

         I am almost through with my first week in the OTA program and I am overwhelmed with information.  I have attended 4 of my 5 classes for the term and I can see how they are all going to be challenging in their own ways.  I was most concerned about my Neuro class, but I think that it actually will not be so ...

  • First Quarter of the Semester Stress

    It seems silly to think of it already one quarter of the way through with the semester when it's only the beginning of the fourth week, but it is. And with that comes the first of the mid-terms (Why do my teachers call it mid-term when it's not in the middle?).  I am realizing now the mistake of biting off more than I can chew.  Instead ...

  • Waiting

         I’ve been out of school for about a week now and it has beena long week of waiting.  First I had to wait to get my final grades which seemed to take forever or a whole 2 days.  I am happy to report that both grades were good.  I immediately emailed my grades to my program head to be added to my application ...

  • A Late Summer Break

    Today was my last day for the quarter and it is such a relief.  My brain is completely fried and I am looking forward to one whole month off from school!  Lets call it a late summer break.  My break is already booked to the max.  I have something going on every weekend well into October and the start of the new term.  I ...

  • Working While Going to School

         I have a very important decision to make within the next few weeks.  Assuming (hoping, praying) that I am accepted into the OTA program that starts this fall I need to decide what I am going to do about my job.  I have been strongly advised by the program head that it would be best if I did not work during ...

  • Strict Attendance Policies

    Yesterday I had to leave class after taking my test because I was sick.  I struggled to make it through the test without having to make a quick exit, so staying was just not an option.  However, it was a tough decision to decide to leave and not because I was concerned about missing the lecture, not because I was afraid of ...
