I have senioritis or more like thirdyearitis. Since technically this is my last year of the didactic portion of school… I’m feeling my study habits dwindling before my eyes. It’s tough because we are only in class twice a week and the rest is spent at a clerkship. You would think I would be energized but I feel more stressed than ever.
I remember when I use to be a great student and study right after class. Now I’m either surfing the web or watching hulu for some ungodly amount of time.
There is just a lot to do in so little time. We are actively looking for externships and I had the bright idea to get married in July. So, I have a lot of planning to do.
Clerkship wise, it’s going okay… I haven’t been doing my best because I’m slow as a slug and very inconsistent with my skills but I’m getting better. I’m starting to think I’m not liking the ENT setting mainly because you don’t really know who they will throw at you in such a short amount of time. I guess it would be slightly different if the place I was at wasn’t pediatric base. I don’t mind a few VRA/CPA here and there but I’m starting to think younger kids are not my thing especially in an ENT setting.
I’m thinking about a setting with as little PEDs population and a lot of hearing aid dispensing/fittings/evals… guess that sounds like a private practice setting.
I’m complaining but really life is good. I should be happy I’m even passing so far.
Hey, if anyone has any questions, feel free to send it my way. I’ll try to answer them with the best of my abilities :)
Have you ever listened to a recording of yourself and asked the question: Do I really sound like that? If so, you are not alone. We all hear our own voice as a more deep and resonant version than how others perceive it. But why exactly is that? Put simply, it has to do with the difference between air-conducted versus bone-conducted sound transmission. To find out more, watch Greg Foot of Head Squeeze discuss the phenomenon in a quick, three minute video below.
If you’re an audiologist, audiology student, slp/audiology undergrad student, a family member of someone with hearing loss, etc. Check out this petition for Continued Coverage of the BAHA Implant System that you would definitely want to sign and get the word out!!!
