Peace be with you all! I hope you had a wonderful week!

In two weeks, this semester will be coming to an end. The seniors are graduating, the second semester students (me and my cohort) are being shipped off to clinical rotations for the summer, and the freshman class is getting ready for their hands-on second semester. Boy has it been a long/quick/tiring/exciting/struggle/rewarding ride! But I am grateful for every part of it. This week has been a bit hard, but we managed to complete it. We should all pat ourselves on the back for pushing through. We completed our UCBL foot Orthosis, made a rocker bottom, took our midterms, and started our solid AFO projects. I like how I am starting to get the hang of casting, fabricating, and modifying the pieces. As I practice more, I am gaining more confidence. And I hope I get a chance to gain more confidence by learning and practicing more during my clinical rotations.

See y’all again next week. Time is going by fast and I’m not sure if I should be happy or scared lol  -Onny
