Well, I’m officially done with my first semester of PT school!
I had hoped to get back to regularly blogging while I was in Boston, but school basically consumed my life in a way I hadn’t quite imagined.
I don’t necessarily think that PT school was harder than I expected, but it was definitely more work than I expected. This was basically my scene every night for the past 2 months…
On weekends when I was back on the Cape I tried to change up my scenery a bit when I could…
And the night before my finals my brain was so fried and I was so tired that I resorted to this and called it studying…
Yes. Coloring was all I could handle by this point.
There were definitely times of frustration as I adjusted to the workload and new curriculum the school introduced this year which requires a lot (A LOT!) of independent learning. I’m not sure I was keeping up with all of the material in the way that really suits my learning style best, but the good news is I can take this first semester as a learning experience and I feel like I have a much better idea of how to organize myself to be more productive and efficient with my studies going into the fall!
As for Boston…well, I was so busy with school during the week and then headed back to Cape Cod every weekend, so I didn’t get out to enjoy the city nearly as much as I would have liked, but I do really love it and I can’t wait until Jason and I can spend some time exploring when we are up there full time starting in September.
Other than school I’ve still been teaching my Sunday morning beach yoga class…
…and running. A little. Ok, a very little.
I’m really looking forward to getting back on track with my running over the next month or so that I have off and figuring out my plan for the fall. I had originally hoped to add a fall marathon to the calendar, but with my lack of running this summer thanks to school and the heat and now knowing how much time school consumes, I think I may look for a fall half instead.
Well, I’m off to relax and restore after an incredibly mentally exhausting start to my summer!
But really, can you believe I am actually done with my first semester of PT school??! I can’t tell you how many times over the past couple of months it’s hit me and I’ve thought, “oh my gosh, I am actually doing this!”
Just found your blog after doing a search for pt school. It is my dream to be a pt of one day too. I like your coloring book – where did you get it? I think it could be helpful for reviewing anatomy!
Hi there! I am so glad you found my site! I have to say I’ve gotten pretty lazy about blogging since I started PT school (SO BUSY!), but I’m more than happy to help if you have any questions while you are applying to schools! I got the anatomy coloring book on Amazon, they have a few different versions, but this one is the Netter’s – hope that helps and good luck!
Thank you, I’m going to get a coloring book now and I’m sure I’ll have questions along the way 🙂 and yes, I can only imagine how crazy your schedule is, but you got this!
