This week I’ve really been inspired by people who are exceeding expectations and pushing past boundaries in life. I’m so easily impressed and inspired by the physical therapy students who act on opportunity and do more than just be students. I’m in awe of a woman who created the life that she wanted and the career she envisioned for herself. And speaking of careers, I’m completely blown away by the discipline of one of the world’s most famous writers. Plus, my sister, my little hero, makes a small ( & significant ) appearance!
article I’m reading —
I had to share this article by a current PT student at Angelo State University who, on top of everything else it takes to be a serious PT student, is also writing articles for New Grad Physical Therapy. So impressed.
[SIDE NOTE] Check out New Grad Physical Therapy. Amazing resource for anyone interested in the PT profession!
On the importance of in the PT social media community:
“Immersing yourself in these conversations as an undergrad will not only allow you to prepare for PT school, but will also leave you ready to network after you graduate.”
On getting involved early & how PT’s are life long learners:
“Physical therapy is a fluid and evolving profession in which your education never stops. By getting involved early, you can become adapted to this lifetime of learning.”

If you know Cassey Ho of Pop Pilates, then you know she’s got a million things going on ( YouTube channel, workouts, nutrition plans, certifying instructors, fitness clothing line ) and nowwww a podcast??
I watched it on YouTube.

movie I’m looking forward to —
The Dark Tower movie!!! I am beyond excited for this movie because I read all of the books ( there are 7ish ;)) a few years ago & was obsessed. If you like Harry Potter, then you will probably like Dark Tower. It’s definitely fantasy-like with a dark twist, and the characters are some of the best to ‘get to know.’ It’s by Stephen King & just an amazing story.
[ SIDE NOTE ] Can we take a sec to think about Stephen King’s career? Talk about passion & loving what you do & TAKING ACTION. Writing 90+ books just blows my mind.
what is motivating me —
I recently got this card in the mail from my sister and have been rereading it a lot! It was so sweet & the perfect reminder for what is important in my life. I’m feeling very blessed and thankful.
quote I’m reflecting on —
^^Love that quote by Lisa Bilyeu. I haven’t heard that perspective before & I think it’s realistic and beautiful.
Also, mini-update on my dairy-free life. I started Monday, so I haven’t had any dairy for 5 days now, and my skin looks a lot better, but it may not be because of the dairy… I’m thinking it’s because I just got over my period, so we’ll see how long this lasts. Oh, and I feel better — less heavy/sluggish — since not having any dairy too!
Next week I’ll be posting a fun one on study vibes & how I get into the study zone. I’m very particular about my study atmosphere. . .
**In case you missed it, I created a little tool to help me keep track of digestion/skin/whatever while I’m dairy-free! Feel free to use it too :: Simple Dairy Food Tracker **
