Well it's that time of year, time to start packing up in preparation for the move back to good ole' Judson! I am so very excited to see where this year goes and where God leads me. This summer has been one for the books! It has been wonderful. I've reconnected with some old friends from high school that I've neglected for the past two years. I've learned that true friends are always there for you no matter what, or when, for that matter. I've spent plenty of time this summer enjoying life and the simple things that make it special. I've gone fishing, hiking, swimming, and all the fun summer time activities.
I took a cruise this summer to the Bahamas, St. Thomas, and St. Marten with my parents and it was one of the most joyous times of my life. We spent a lot of time at the beach and just enjoying each other's company. When your mom is your best friend, any time spent together is going to be a good time! I also took a trip to Gulf Shores (After the Oil) with my "Big Sister" from Judson, Whitney Bryars. We met up with some other Judson ladies at the beach and spent a wonderful night out on the town.
The job hunting was a complete failure, but I spent the entire summer observing at an Orthopedic Center and Riverview Hospital. I followed around a physical therapist watching and learning skills and important information pertaining to my future career. It was a very educational summer. This last week I have been hired as a PT Tech, to fill in for a lady that is on vacation. It was exciting to see my hard work pay off when I finally got a patient of my own! Although tech work is nowhere near as extensive as a therapist's, it still is very important and must be taken seriously.
I've also been chosen to be a L.A.M.P. (Leading and Mentoring Peer) for the new incoming freshman class! I can't wait to get back and meet my girls! My best friend is going to be my roommate and I'm walking into this softball season injury free! Knock on Wood, I just did! haha! This year is going to be GREAT! =)
Check back after the 12th for Welcome Week updates!
