1st year (almost) in the books

Palmer College of Chiropractic campusMarch is coming up quickly, and that will mark one full year in the books at Palmer! In one year things have changed dramatically–for the best! I’m not actually sure where all the time has gone, because I feel like I was just taking the first round of exams in first trimester (although, I’m so happy that’s over with).

If you’ve read my previous blogs, you know that I worked in the corporate world before making a leap and changing the direction of my life. For those who are also thinking of doing the same thing, let me tell you, the first trimester can be a little rocky. Getting back in the groove of being in school and not having a science background was difficult, but if you’re willing to put in the time (which will probably be more time than your classmates have to), it will all be worth it!

Last night I was at the sorority house and was talking to one of the girls whom I started with, and she agreed that this first year has flown by. Many people have already told me that their time at Palmer flew by, but when you are in the middle of it, sometimes it is a little overwhelming. But this is just like anything else, as long as you take it one day at a time, pretty soon you’ll be one year in and then, in no time, graduating.

In the past two weeks I’ve also talked to some previous co-workers and asked them how things are going at work. There responses were all pretty similar, that nothing had changed. As much as I miss those paychecks, I’m so happy I’m no longer working at those jobs and chose a career in chiropractic and Palmer!

I look forward to seeing what the next year at Palmer has in store for me!
