Fall, Don't Go!

We had our first snow fall this week. While it was a beautiful sight to see the dusting of snow cover the beautiful fall colors and leaves, it was a sad reminder that soon the leaves will be gone, and snow will cover everything. I’m glad I was able to get over to Morton Arboretum to enjoy the beauty of fall before everything dies from the cold.

I love having this place so close to campus, it is about a 10-minute drive. The best part is that you can purchase a membership and use it year-round! They have walking trails, biking trails, and even snowshoeing in the winter once there is at least three inches of snow on the ground.

The snow was also a painful reminder of how fast this trimester is going! We just completed Week 8 of the trimester, which means we are over half way done. When I think about the fact that Thanksgiving break, and Veteran’s Day (day off from school) are just around the corner, I know the rest of the trimester is going to go even faster than the first half.

I think I mentioned it in my last post, but I am loving everything about this trimester! I absolutely love being an intern in the clinic. I am learning so much, every single shift. I often finish my shift and go home and want to keep researching stuff for the patient cases I am seeing while there. I love this hands-on experience we are getting! I am also loving my coursework this trimester! Although I have to admit, some of my coursework is falling a little behind, due to my love of research and clinic duties. However, the classes I have this trimester are fascinating! They all seem to have a heavily clinical focus and approach, which I really appreciate.
