I want to listen.
Oh, big blue how I want to listen.
I see the two opposites kiss ever so gently,
both providing life and opportunity.
But I want to hear. I would rather hear.
Speak, whisper cool tones of delight
while I sit in fragile concrete and see nothing.
Speak in clashing tones
while I revel in the past
or in what could have been.
I will sit here, waiting.
I will wait until I find my answers.
...since my last entry. It's crazy. Here I thought I'd be updating it frequently.
So much has happened since then - my grandfather passed, I met Brittany, flunked my first Chemistry test and now somehow managing a B, ran sessions fluently, and much more.
I had my first climbing competetion this past weeked and I actually performed solidly. I just wish I had been there from the start of the competition but Special Olympics got in the way. I also took my first outdoor climbing trip to Enchanted Rock. We then went to Rheimers Ranch a couple weeks after. Both events were so much fun. I believe I'm getting much stronger as a climber, both technically and mentally.
Oh, I just got elected as Vice President of the PTSociety, so that's exciting. It should be somewhat challenging, if anything.
Between my last blog and now, so much has happened. I guess I totally forgot about updating it.
Well, I passed Anatomical Kin with an A. It was no biggy whatsoever; I knew I was going to get that after my fourth exam. Currently, I am volunteering at the hospital and taking Med Term online (so far so good; I'm the only one who's even turned in their midterm exam - I'm so damn punctual). I was looking at the anatomical chart and realized I need to tune up on recalling ligaments - annular, ulnar and radial coll. lig's, etc. The PT's there are awesome except for a couple that are so reserved and tacit. What's even more great is that fact that when I observed a patient today(while the PT was evaluating him) I knew automatically he had a rotator cuff problem after showing discomfort in performing arm stretches. She figured out it was a rotator cuff (supraspinatus) problem of course, but my countenance and posture belied my excitement in realizing that I just might become a darn good PT in the future. This is what I want to do. This is me.
I also helped Chris in translating arm exercises to a patient. It was nice to assist and gain some (even though minimal) experience.
My flexor digitorum longus doesn't stop twitching. Hmm.
It's been awhile since I last wrote on here, so it's time for an update.
I'm done with Computer Applications. We presented our PowerPoint on Yao (hoping Jimmy would like it) and got a 100 on it. Now that that's out of the way, I'm sure I'll get the A in the class.
I have a cardiac physiology test tomorrow and I'm not taking it seriously. I guess my logic behind taking it in a lollingly and sluggish manner lies within my overall grade for the class - an A+. I've taken five tests and my lowest grade thus far has been a 92. I can afford to take it easy on this upcoming test, but the innate hunger in me to learn seems to always strike a chord when I get like this. Why? Well, it's because I know I'll be seeing this information once more in the future (Exercise Physiology), and it's better to understand now than later.
Cuauhtemoc Blanco answered my question today on espn.com. It was nice. Like my innate desire in the advancement of education when learning about the human body, Blanco exemplifies his munificence and intrinsic desire towards helping others. I am now a true fan of his.
What a great piece of filmmaking. The film exhibits sublime landscapes along with marvelous, stark performances. It's perfectly understandable how its dark, morose ambience and unraveling of plot and characterization would want to make one delve into the history of Jesse James and/or Robert Ford. This film, which is based on historical events, is truly one of the more notable movies I've seen that does not solely rely on action and hollywood-esque techniques.
Okay, so today I heard Cindy (PTSociety) saying how they might lay her off from her work because days are slow and doctors are out on vacation, seeing how it's summer. This piqued my interest. PT's can't get that many patients since doctors aren't sending them over. This is one reason why PT's need direct access. We PT's can't rely solely on doctors for patients. It is imperative we get this. Vision 20/20 is coming along, though.
