And so my first week of 'the new world' has ended, almost.
Classes MTWTh, working overnight Fri and Sat.
Last night (Fri). I did not study. Tonight I must. I may as well, I've gotten a sore back from all the stuff I put in my backpack with intent to actually go through it between bed checks.

thing is, this same schedule, with more time in school when we start the clinical rotations, will be going on for 2 years.

The faculty are very supportive. One passed out a sheet "why do I want to be in this field" for us to keep and use to remember why we are here.

I didn't fill it out yet (maybe tonight), but my brain went into OT mode when I was listening to Twine Time (KUT/Paul Ray).Tonight was "back to school dance night", with all the "dances" of the early 60's. The Locomotion, the mashed potato, the Dog, The SWIM. I was imagining the power of taking these songs and presenting them to disabled veterans, having the 'Nam vets toodle about in wheelchairs to the Locomotion, hand clapping & singing & whatever. Describing the Scope of Occupational Therapy seems pretty difficult, because it can be so wide ranging. It overlaps with PT a lot, but perhaps focuses more on the doing than the muscle movement.
Then again, this doesn't mean we don't have to memorize all the names & their movements! <faculty on>You learned all that in Anatomy and Phys so we assume you remember it...<faculty off>.

Ahh well. Put the dr. B (an HEB store Dr. Pepper with Cane Sugar)in the freezer & get back to that heavy backpack of books.
Got work to do.
