Couple Friends, Clinic, and ICM Quiz...

Last week ended well despite the minor health setback and I am finally coming to the realization that the school year is pretty much almost over and the task that lies between me and my summer vacation - block three of exams and finals immediately after.

This weekend was lots of fun because some of our good friends came down to Indy - another married couple - and we had a great time. I have had the chance to spend time with family and friends, and I think that it was just what I needed to get back on track with my studies. The Hubby's birthday weekend is approaching, and that will be my last hurrah before test season/hibernation - Let's get it!

Yesterday I spent some time volunteering at the IU-SOC. It's a free clinic that was started a few years ago by a group of IU medical students. It is one of the only free clinics in the city, and it is in a neighborhood that has a HUGE need. Butler University joined in and provides a pharmacy, the IU dental and law school comes in too to lend their student expertise. There are two MDs there too that see patients after the med students triage them. It was great to volunteer - a lot of the patients yesterday were returners - meaning this is their only contact with a healthcare provider. I helped with checking patients in, and many of them talked about how it was near impossible for them to get health insurance, prescriptions, and basic necessities...

Today was a lovely day. Heard a great Word today when I tuned in to Word of Faith's "Faith at Home" series, and I just have had an overwhelming feeling of gratitude all day. I really need to get my church attendance game up tho...although it's great that I can stream it, nothing compares to being there...

We have a quiz tomorrow in Intro to Clinical Medicine that focuses on the behavioral science portion of our education - developmental stages, Freud, cognitive testing, etc. A lot of it is coming back to me from my psychology classes at Michigan - the part of undergrad classes that I enjoyed the most :-)

Oh and the Hubby booked our anniversary weekend for May - I wanted to wait until after school is out since our anniversary falls in the middle of finals season as referenced above...But anyways, VERY VERY VERY excited!

Be Blessed and Goodnight!
