Almost done with clinic

Now that Boards are over most of my time is spent getting ready for precepting and moving across the country! We have two weeks left of classes for my trimester, and I still need to get two more physical exams to finish my graduation requirements. I have a bunch of paperwork to get turned in after I finish up those physicals.

I started packing up and cleaning out my apartment last night. I threw away a lot of things, gathered a lot of things for a garage sale and textbooks to donate, and started packing up the things that will come with me! My apartment looks too bare right now, but I have less than a month before moving day!

I am very excited to start this new journey. I’ve talked to the doctor I am precepting with, and we’ve set up a start date. We are both very excited to start working with each other. I am very excited to see the difference between how her office is run and how we run the clinic. I can’t wait to learn all aspects of how to run and operate an office, and I’m excited to start adjusting again! Having to take a month off from adjusting is going to be dreadful. I love adjusting, and when it’s been a long weekend or a break, I find myself missing it. I love that I’ve found a profession where I miss doing what I do when I’m unable to work for short periods of time.

I know I will be busy enough to keep my mind off it, though. Moving across the country is not an easy task. I’m glad I only had to do it once. I came to the Quad Cities from Burlington, Iowa, so it was a short trip to move here. Moving 18 hours away is a whole different story, but I couldn’t be more excited. I can’t wait to be a short drive from the beach and never having to freeze again. I will not miss Iowa winters, that’s for sure. I will miss several things about Iowa, but maybe that will be my first entry once 10th tri starts!
