Spent the weekend in Chattanooga with former classmate Becca. We walked ALL over the place….did fun stuff…ended the night with a really neat conversation with her and her husband about how Warm Springs, GA changed the WORLD, really. Her husband used to visit her while she was doing a 3 month fieldwork down in Warm Springs (Becca is the one who introduced me to the idea of working there) and he toured the museum and loves the history of the place. He pointed out some good points to me!
Last night I lay down with Pendretti's OT for Physical Dysfunction and skimmed through the first 200 pages….need to start tabbing. I need reminders of being occupation-based and client-centered. 🙂 Today I get to go observe at outpatient satellite clinic, I'm excited about that. 🙂
I just searched my blog for “angel” and while I found some interesting stuff, I didn’t find what I was looking for. I might have not written about it when it happened? I dunno.
I think I've posted this but not positive. I'm in the “therapeutic recreation” center on their semi-more consistent wireless. Warm Springs has a big ol' mountain blocking signals….so my cell phone (Verizon which supposedly does the best around here) drops off regularly, and my wireless Internet is a joke! ANYWAY…that makes it hard to work on all my internet stuff like blogging etc!
I have a Georgia drivers license (the DMV in LaGrange only had like one person in line ahead of me) and had to surrender my TN one!
frustrating that both cell phone service and internet are poor where i live! warm springs is a black hole for reception!
Tonight is my first night in GA in my own room in the shared housing. I spent many hours today getting it all put together although it still has many hours to go. It's tempting to say that I should just leave it bare as I need to move soon (so I can have my cat!!) etc. But I think it's worth a day or two of hard work t have several months of higher quality of life…
most exhausting 48 hours ever. but it all went without any major hitches…very nice. looking forward to settling in and it still has not sunk in that I live here now, not Memphis. more tomorrow or soon when im more coherent. very tired! but glad.
Thursday & Friday are my two last days in Memphis. Still have a LOT to get done but got a lot done today. Have said goodbye to most of my friends in town. Have errands to run and then a LOT more packing to do..the kitchen, all my clothes, etc etc. Not to mention finish filing, ack! But I think it will all get done in time. Guess we'll see, huh?
