So it’s been a while since my last post. I want to apologize for that it’s been so long because I have been busy travelling!
I spent a week in London sight seeing and relaxing after exams before coming to study at a beautiful castle in England. London was amazing! The city was always filled with different things to see and do. I was also lucky enough to get to go on a trip to Stonehenge which was incredible. It still blows my mind how such HUGE stones were dragged across such a long distance. Seeing them up close really confirmed my absolute shock that such an astonishing feat could be accomplished.
So now onto the school topic, I am studying an interdisciplinary course in Global Health and Disabilities Studies. I feel so blessed to be studying such an amazing course in such an incredible place (the Castle!). Our first night of the course, a guest speaker came in. He was a Great British paralympian, his story was incredible and his outlook on life was something I really want to start to implement more. His phrase was regardless of what you have you should use what you have and not just think about what you dont. In his context he was saying that he started to focus on the 1/3 of his body he could use and not the 2/3 of his body he couldn’t.
His openness and vulnerability was something that I have been trying to work on achieving on a regular basis. As such I was amazed at how honest he could be with us while talking about some of his highest and lowest points in life. This is something that I am working on myself and most of the reason I started the blog in the first place. So seeing this actually happen from someone I don’t know is super inspiring to me and has reminded me of my original goal for this blog.
The first course I’m taking is one in collaborative interprofessional education. So far it seems super interesting. My class is really small and every three hour lecture seems more like a discussion than a lecture and time seems to just fly while I’m in class. So it seems that school here will be great! This is the first time I’ve been so excited about a course in school for a long time. It probably have to do with the fact that I can see this being extremely applicable come graduation.
I am super excited to see where this course may lead me in my future.
