another update- and yes i know, still none of the promised collegiate papers…
RAWR! another late night post because i simply must just get these things out of my head.
so what exactly is firing around in my neurons these days, you ask. well the internal debate between whether or not i will go in the clinic or more research-y path is still at a stalemate. i recently got a gander of some of the research being done at Harvard (http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~skeleton/) and became extremely fascinated. but i’m still enjoying working in physical therapy settings.
next semester i am taking a seminar on biomechanics and will have research to do with the second half of that. i will also be doing research with one other student under a professor looking at symmetry in various organisms to understand their potentially adaptive nature. and on the side i will still be working at IPT and probably will start volunteering at a hospital nearby on the weekends.
future more immediate plans- i’m applying for a job at a hospital near my home trying to work under a physical medicine and rehabilitation unit. i’ll let you know on the progress with that in the near future.
after that… i’m trying to see if i can combine a year of volunteering under a quaker association with a nonprofit organization for children with special needs and start creating a knowledge of i guess what would be touching occupational therapy ideas. or/and look into doing some kind of research for that year.
okay now that i’ve got that all of my chest i’m going to try to grab some ZZZs before class. -.-
a smorgasbord of updates on my directed reading as well as some more IPT stories and a special entry on a guest speaker my school hosted recently will be up in the near near future. after all, classes are soooo close to being done. :D
