Another Round

Our Radiography class of 2013 has gotten past a second semester of hardships and challenges. We have been tested (so so much), and for the most part we have risen to the occasion, and passed with flying colors.

Here are some of the lessons I have learned so far…

  1. Try to keep moving forward regardless of the fear you might feel.
  2. Find creative ways to release your anger so it doesn’t project out in the wrong direction.
  3. Help others when they ask, because if your reasons for not helping are selfish, in the end, you are helping yourself as well.
  4. As difficult as it may be, study hard, but also give yourself time to relax and socialize with friends and family.
  5. Save up your personal leave hours, because you never know when you might actually need them, for larger reasons than wanting some extra study time.
  6. Don’t fret over your mistakes, just learn from them and move on.

Last semester we were told was the hardest semester in the program.  I’m not complaining, but I really hope that’s true.  Like many of my class members, I could use a bit of a mental drift semester.  So far this summer semester has been just that.  Just what we’ve been asking for.  I think we are supposed to use this extra time to study for a big test.  At the end of summer A we have to pass our year review test in order to continue on in the program.  Wish me luck!
