Being back at school isn't as bad as I thought it would be. It was definitely nice being home for a week, but I did miss my friends here. I don't know how I will make it through Christmas break without seeing them, so we'll have to get together sometime for sure. Today was a pretty long day at school, but I'm hoping these next three weeks go by fast so we can be on break again.
Today, I applied to rent my very first house. I have never experienced so much anxiety and nervousness and excitement at once. It is very close to campus and some really nice restaurants, too. It was quite the process to go through, and we are all really excited to see what happens. No matter what, this has been a learning experience that we can take some knowledge away from. We all know what we want and don't, and this place seems like it would fit all of our needs perfectly. There are two bedrooms and one bathroom with an open-concept downstairs that flows from the living room into the dining room and then the kitchen is a little bit closed off. Hopefully we hear back in the next couple of days because I don't think I can wait too much longer!
It's Monday and so it's back to school. It has been very nice to relax at home but now that I'm back at school, I need to get back into the swing of things. This week has a whole bunch of projects and assignments due at the end of the week, so I am going to be spending the majority of my week in the library. Yay! I still can't believe how soon Christmas Break is. It's going to happen sooner than later. But I am very excited for it. I just need to make it through the next couple of weeks!

There is a new fad in the exercise realm with these foam rollers a lot of people are using. The big question is...does it actually work or do what people claim it does? We have to be aware of the claims such as "the newest breakthrough that is the missing link in your practice" or "X intervention will get patients back faster than other interventions". If these ALL were true, all PTs would be without a job because it would be a cure all for everyone. Having these discussions with patients can be difficult, but are very important important with the outcomes that can be expected after a bout of PT. Well here is the most up to date research regarding the ever important foam roller. Check it out here:
