Fancy Clothes and Fun Times

I am just over one year into my journey to become a doctor of chiropractic.  It is daunting and I’ve struggled along the way.  But if it was supposed to be an easy path then everyone would be called Doctor.  Cleveland Chiropractic College is unlike any other academic environment I’ve ever experienced.  When I tell people that we are a family, I don’t think they fully grasp how deep our love for each other really lies.  I’ve heard about super competitive schools and while we are competitive, ours is a friendly competition and not the cut-throat sabotage variety. At any time someone will offer tips for how to study for a test or freely share their old notes with another student.  It is the most genuinely caring environment I’ve ever been privileged enough to call home.

When people say it is a blessing to lift others up so they might succeed I am proud to say that Clevelanders exhibit this every single day without a second thought.  It is as much from the faculty as it is from the other students.  I know that at any time I can talk with a professor who will set everything down, and with genuine interest, answer any questions I might have or offer guidance if that’s what I’m needing.  Open door policy is a way of life here and even with instructors that I may not have taken classes from yet.

Once a year we all get together for a night of relaxing fun.  It’s the Cleveland Chiropractic formal.  Everyone gets dolled up, enjoys a great meal, and shares some laughs with students and faculty alike.  The food was delicious, the music was perfect, and everyone had a great time.  It’s a nice reminder that every once in a while we all need to set the studying down and step back to enjoy the life we are living right now.  Once we are finished with school and have our fancy diploma we will wish that we could have spent more time with our chiropractic family.

I raise a glass to you all.  You are the support group that others should strive to become!

Chemistry Distraction

I’m being a good wife and letting Hubby sleep in since he was up all night playing Xbox live with friends working hard. Because I have a quiz in the morning and two tests a bit later in the week homework just makes sense with this quiet time. Although anyone with kids or, dare I add, dogs knows that the term “quiet time” is different than when one was a young woman living alone in a studio apartment across the hall from an Indian family with the best smelling food. Good times. Good quiet times.

Where was I? Oh yes… My little furry at-least-she-isn’t-barking-at-some-shadow-or-eating-a-textbook puppy making homework a challenge today.

It’s Official!

I found this on a blog I tripped over today and just had to share it with the masses.  I find this especially interesting since I’ve been tracking my cycles with temperatures and charts and other very frustrating items.

A recent university study examined what women find attractive in a man, as affected by their menstrual cycle…

The results were stunningly clear and consistent across 95.8% of women…

When a woman is ovulating, she is looking for a man who is ruggedly handsome.

When a woman is menstruating, she is looking for a man with duct tape across his mouth, a spear in his chest, lit on fire, and leaving her the hell alone.

No further studies of this phenomena are planned…
