Inpatient psychiatry is a really interesting place to start rotations. The patients have to be physically stable to be placed on the psych floor, so I haven't had to perform a physical exam. The psych version of a physical exam is called a mental status exam, which assesses a patient's cognition, thought process, insight, etc. The diagnoses we've seen include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, borderline personality disorder, and drug-induced psychosis. We just . . .
Hi from Indianapolis! My uncle recently had some major surgery (he's doing well), so my aunt, mom and I are up here to spend some time with him, but I get the bonus of seeing my best friend too! She's having a little meeting/Christmas gift exchange with the owners of the yoga studio she manages (If you're in Indy you MUST go to The Hot Room) so I'm sipping on a green juice and popping in for a quick block post. Outfits for holiday parties are so fun. I always wish I had more fancy . . .
How is everyone? Still full? Out shopping already? My family has never been into the Black Friday shopping. I'm not into early mornings and crazy crowds. But Cyber Monday? That I can get into. I do almost all of my shopping online. And luckily now it's pretty much just awesome sales all weekend, so no need to wait until Monday! I've gathered some of my current favorites for you guys, and I'll be eyeing the sales to see if there are some great steals! Teri put together a "sales" page on . . .
Hey, friends! Sorry to disappear for a little while. I tried to record a yoga video earlier in the week, but after two attempts it wasn't working so I gave up and decided to get back to studying. I'll try to record it again this weekend and share! We have a test almost every Friday for the next couple of months, so life is busy! It's going well though, and I love what I'm learning. This weekend I have some time to catch up on studying for boards, am teaching two yoga classes, and have . . .
Happy Friday!! How was your week?? Mine was pretty busy with events every night. That makes it fly by, but means I didn't have enough time to study! This weekend will be ALL about the studying - our respiratory final is next Friday. Last night I got to go to the Cardinals game with some friends. It might be the last game I see this season - the wild card race is looking kinda iffy for us! But it was an exciting walk-off win and a great night with friends. Here are my Friday Favorites . . .
Hi everyone! Long time no talk. I had a test this week, and yoga teacher training all last weekend meant time was at a premium. But I'm back, and ready to talk about Fall Clothes! A lot of the fall new arrivals came out last week, which means I spent too much time browsing and creating shopping bags that I'll never actually purchase. But it's nice to make wish lists and watch for sales, right? Right now I've got clinic clothes on my mind, since that's in my very near future. That means work . . .
Current Mood: hoping I can squeeze in a few beach days in Hilton Head before my summer is over! tank || dress || bikini || sandals || bag || sun hat || sunglasses || beach towel || pillow || chair || umbrella How did summer fly by so fast!? I had ALL these plans of things to get done and now suddenly I've only got a few weeks left before school starts again. I'm hoping I can push really hard on my work for the next two weeks and then use my final week for some (more - I've . . .
Ireland temperatures in the summer are not like the midwest in the summer! The country is pretty far north and so stays cooler, but the North Atlantic Drift keeps the temperatures pretty moderate. Never too cold, never too hot. My #1 advice is to pack layers!! It could be nice in just a t-shirt during the day, but you could want a sweater and jacket if it's windy or rainy (which happen quite often.) Check the weather ahead of time to see if you're experiencing a rare warm period where you . . .
Happy first day of summer!!!! I'm at a stage in my life where now when I put on shorts, a tank top, and some mascara I am "dressed up." Ruffle Tank - Similar, Similar, Similar || Scalloped Shorts || Leopard Sandals (on sale!) || Beaded Necklace This was the quick summer outfit I threw in a bag on the way to Yoga Teacher Training to wear on Saturday night. I had two events to go to -- a birthday party at home and a party with friends -- but ended up just staying at home for the birthday. . . .
BHLDN. That's "Beholden" for those of you that are totally unaware like me. It's Anthropologie's wedding line and everything about it just beautiful. Except for the prices. But a girl can dream! My friend got her dress for med prom there (a mauve bridesmaid dress), which led me to checking out the website. Of course I fell in love. Everything is stunning, bride or not! I couldn't resist sharing...someone please get something so I can live vicariously through you. And then let me borrow . . .
