Keeping busy, having fun at the West Campus

We have such a strong community here at Palmer’s West Campus, with so many different events to be a part of. Just the past three weeks have been packed with adventure and fun social events.

The first week back from break, we had the first quarter/second quarter party, where we welcomed the new students and socialized. We were out at the pool grilling and meeting all the new students.

The next day we went water rafting in Sacramento with a big group on a school bus. It was perfect, sunny California weather, and we were surrounded by great friends. It is such a blessing to have schoolmates that become such quality friends. The day was a blast relaxing on the river, splashing around. We even had some fun on a rope swing.

On the way back, everyone crashed on the bus after the long, fun, exhausting day.

The next day, a group of us got up early to head to San Francisco for the AIDS walk. Our school got together to support and donate towards the AIDS research nationwide.

Phew! Seems like so much already, and I’ve only just begun.

The next weekend, a large group of us went to Scottsdale, Ariz. and spent the entire weekend at the American Chiropractic Association Sports Council Symposium. There we were able to network with many sports chiropractors and hear well-known speakers present on newest research in the sports field. The seminars throughout school have been amazing and so important. All of them keep me motivated in school and show me even more of what is out there to explore in our field.

Since the seminar, there have been even more events. There is always something fun to do here—always a game to see, a speaker to listen to, and a sporting event to play in.

Of course in the midst of all this fun, there is the classroom component. I always make sure to find time to get lots of studying in, but I maintain a healthy amount of fun to keep me motivated through this busy and challenging degree. I love every moment!

  1. Yes it is accurate (for the amonut of info you 100% are sure about ie lmp, conception, cycle length), I use this site all the time. Somewhere in the trimester calculator it breaks it down that you could break the trimesters in gestational age, development and conception. So it is probably using one of the methods the other site isn’t There are basically three ways of dividing up a pregnancy into the three trimesters; they are by:Development, Gestation, Conception. They give different dates for when the second trimester begins and for when the third trimester begins. Your health care provider might prefer to use the Development method, while another Midwife or Doctor may use the Gestation method.I am sure they do that just to confuse pregnant women.by Development:This uses actual developmental stages to divide up a pregnancy. From LMP to 12 weeks the embryo develops all the major organs and becomes a fetus. From 12 weeks to 27 weeks the fetus continues developing and reaches viability. From 27 weeks on the fetus finishes development and prepares for delivery. Here the second trimester begins at 12w 0d and the third at 27w 0d.by Gestation:With this method you take the 40 weeks of gestation and divide by three. Here the second trimester begins at 13w 3d and the third at 26w 6d.by Conception:This method is where you take the 38 weeks of post conception development, divide by three, and add two weeks. Here the second trimester begins at 14w 5d and the third at 27w 3d.
