After spending endless hours and doing very well on my med surg exam on Tuesday, I was ready for a break. Wednesday was my birthday! It was exactly what I needed to put schoolwork on the back burner for a day. It was a gorgeous day- the sun shining and what felt like a fall breeze sweeping by. I hiked up Paine to take advantage of the weather. It is such a blessing to have a great facility right on campus. If you are not familiar with the Paine Recreational Center it is a Norwich service that provides outdoor equipment to Norwich students. The trails up the mountain are well maintained. There are many paths to take, but I love taking the red trail down since it also serves the purpose of a mountain biking trail with birms and such. This year I turned 22 and celebrated with my friends. It was so much fun...weird to think it was my last birthday celebration at Norwich.
This weekend is Alumni Weekend on campus. Kip Moore is playing in the Field house. It is a big weekend for all to have fun. However, I decided to travel to the Adirondacks for the weekend. New York State similar to VT and has beauty everywhere you go. I will be doing some homework this weekend but mostly I will be focusing on relaxing, spending time with a friend who works near Lake Saranac.
The respiratory unit in my med surg class is now completed. Next we are learning Cardiovascular, which I think is going to be a little more challenging for me. My other classes are going well. I have weekly posts due for both End of Life and Health Economics. I am enjoying those classes.
I am preparing for the physical fitness test that will soon be approaching for AF ROTC. It has always been my goal to get a 100/100. Past attempts have fallen only a few points off, so my plan is to achieve this goal by graduation.
Have a great weekend!
