So I have been detained from blogging due to many new things going on in my life. My husband, went back to school in January and is away from home five days a week. I have been adjusting to being a single parent on those days in addition to still running my business and getting in my personal workouts. It has been an adjustment, but I think I am back. I have included an update from my husband, Andrew, who just began his second quarter of Chiropractic school. It is our new normal and I give props to all the single parents of the world, as well as those who go back to school as adults to pursue their dreams. I never knew, until recently, how difficult that life was.
So what’s Andrew up to these days? Q2 Week 1
Signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs. And in that song he talks about thanking the Lord for thinking about him, he’s alive and doing fine. Well, that’s how I feel when I hear about all of you inquiring about me. I’m going to do my best to keep all of you updated through this ‘newsletter’ if you will. I appreciate all of you and how you keep inquiring, it is making the process a bit easier knowing I have so many of you thinking about me.
So I finished up my undergraduate requirements in the Winter quarter, and have just started into the DC program. This is not like any other environment I have been in where so many are working towards the same goal. In other situations it is very competitive and people don’t want to talk about and share information because they feel it would give someone knowledge they didn’t already have and would diminish their own value. Here, those who have gone before are trying to help those who are new, and those of us who are new are essentially bonding in the fact that we will be attending almost every class together, all 68 of us, moving from one room to the next trying to absorb all that we can, and if we miss something then someone else will have picked it up and will help the others. This is awesome.
My living situation has changed from the first quarter and I am now on campus so I can walk to any and everything. I was having to drive 30 minutes one way to get to class, and planning how I was going to eat and study and work (yes, I got a job at the wellness center as a trainer.) Things are easier now by being on campus, and with there being more adult learners than most colleges have I don’t feel I out of place in any way.
The course load for this first quarter is a bit strange, there are some classes that we will only meet face to face once, and other we’ll meet once a week, and some we’ll get together three times a week. This is really testing my planning and organization skills. As Radley keeps telling me, I’ll already know some of this stuff, and that willl ease some of the work necessary for those classes and allow more time for those I need to work on more. It is all coming together and I am finding my way pretty well.
I appreciate all the suppport that everyone is sending me, I can feel it everyday and in each class I go into. Please keep the good vibrations coming and I will see you all real soon.
