High Five for Friday

I can't tell you guys how tired and busy I've been in the past four days!  I spend two full days in classes a week, about 12 hours a week in either clinic or at the school where I'm doing clinicals, I spend approximately 7 hours a week driving, and during my spare time I'm busy reading, studying, making flash cards, and now writing lesson plans.  To top it all off, all of my awesome clinic supervisors (it sounds like I'm being sarcastic, but I'm really not, they are amazing) have given me lots of supplemental materials and books to study.  Like I said last week, I am loving every minute of it.  It's not like undergrad or even last year, when I just tried to get by with an A.  It's very different, because this is knowledge and these are skills that I will definitely be using in less than two years, and I want to soak in every piece of knowledge and wisdom I possibly can before I'm thrown out on my own!  So anyway, it's going great; I'm overwhelmed and very busy; and blogging will probably be sporadic at best in the next two years, unless I somehow find out how to  magically make more hours appear in my day!

Luckily, Fridays are my free days!!  Yay!  So today I thought I'd link up with Lauren again after skipping a few weeks:


1. I dug some of my fall stuff out of the basement last weekend.  These things make me so happy!  Now I just need to work on the front porch.

2. Pumpkin spice lattes are back!  I had my first one on Tuesday at school.  'Tis the season! I think there were new people working at that Starbucks, because they were super slow, and my PSL was way too sweet.  It made me super sad, because normally they are perfect. Ha!  Better luck next time, I guess!

3. Just in case you're new around here, and you're not sure if I'm a nerd, here's your proof.  We get extra credit in my Acquired Brain Injury class for coloring about 20 pages in our human brain coloring books. Every time I sit down to watch TV I work on a few pages.  It is the best!  ...because I love neuro, and I love coloring.  

4. Premiere week is coming up!  I've been catching up on the last season of all my favorite shows while I make flash cards or do homework.  (Is it weird that I need that background noise in order to focus?  It seems like it should be the other way around).  I'm currently working through season 1 of Revenge. It's on Netflix!  Do you watch that show?  I'm excited for that and HIMYM, New Girl, Modern Family, The Office, Parks and Rec, and Big Bang Theory.  What premieres are you most looking forward to?

5. On our first day of orientation, our clinic supervisor told us that it's unprofessional to use your phone to find out the time.  Oops, that's what I've been doing for at least 4 years.  So this week I went on a mission to find a watch that I wasn't going to have to pay much for.  I found this one for $12.88 and I actually think it's really cute!  So now I can be professional and use my watch during class and clinicals.  Mission accomplished. 

Happy Friday!
