Day 18: Whoosh.

Hello everyone. I went ice skating today! For free! Because I have an awesome placement that pays for activities like this done with the patients. I was going to go to the gym after work, but I decided the ice skating was enough, as I’m pretty knackered now. Plus, as usual, I have tons of work to do.

For anyone who’s interested, Flan sent me this link earlier today to a video about a free app for iPhones/Pods/Pads and Android phones. It’s called MyVoice and is a new communication aid for anyone with aphasia, autism, etc. I think it looks pretty awesome, but I’d have to look into it further.

Wow. Busy.

I don’t really know where to start. My days are so busy now, what with being able to finally get on the computer and write notes. The extra time I had the first two weeks at work that could be spent studying are now devoted to writing notes, but I come home in the afternoons/evenings too exhausted to study, or do anything really, so I feel I’m falling behind.

Luckily, my PE says I’m working on a B average already for my competencies, which is pretty good for Week 3 of 10. The only place I’m a bit lacking in is demonstrating my knowledge and understanding of mental health issues, which even I knew was terrible. Therefore, I finally found time to go to the medical library in the hospital grounds and sign up, asking the library assistant to give me a pile of relevant books. I’ve also bought myself the MOHO textbook, as MOHO is heavily used in this setting.

Anyway, now I need to watch a video on safeguarding children that I was supposed to watch ages ago.
