WHOO, FALL '08 IS OFFICIALLY DONE!!!
My goodness was December super busy with school ending, finals & other miscellaneous things! So I guess I'll just talk about the most important stuff since I don't really remember when the event happened, haha. Everything's a blur!
OCTH 110 CASE STUDY--*
I should've blogged about this earlier since it happened the week before Thanksgiving, but I was too stressed out [shocking huh?] about finishing the darn thing & doing a kick ass job on it. My group wasn't the best at getting things done on time so it was going against my attitude of gethings done early. I had to revise our paper so much [2 hours worth] that my teacher said it like night & day when comparing the before & after [go me!]. After doing so, we had to get our powerpoint done super quick as well & I ended up putting the stuff together, ugh. At least on presentation day, we got an A+ *dances* I have seriously never been so stressed in my life, my gosh!
On dead day, I met up with my OCTH 113 group to finish our posterboard for our final the next day. It looked fabulous & was probably the second best one in the class if I don't say so myself! Afterwards, I met up with Samantha, Christine, Oliver, & Xuan for lunch at Hally K. Ono Cafe. I miss my humanities friends & I love hanging out with them. Friends in other majors keep me sane, haha! We found out that Xuan had a boyfriend who's name was Keven Wong, which is hilarious because Samantha's boyfriend is Kevin & my last name is Wong. What was even funnier is that Xuan's last name is the same as Vinh's! We have a thing going on here, haha!
Onto finals, I definitely got an A in OCTH 115 since I rocked that class to no end, haha. Art & crafts are my best friend & labs are always more fun for me anyway. I am also pretty sure I got A's in OCTH 113 & 110 since those were the finals with the posterboard & open book. The only one I'm not too sure about is OCTH 108 since diseases always get me confused, boo. At least I did extra credit so I have a little buffer! After our last final, all the first year OT students headed over to Pizza My Heart for a little end of Semester I celebration! One down & 5 more to go! It was fun just hanging out & watching people get hilarious gifts from the white elephant exhange, haha.
GLENDY & DREW'S CIVIL WEDDING--*
At 10:30am, December 16, Vinh & I arrived my cousin Glendy & her fiancee Drew's civil wedding [real one is on January 2, '09 in Hawaii]. It was a really small semi-formal thing, but it was much nicer than the wedding I went to last time *cough* Most of the time I was up & about taking photos for my family to see since only Vinh & I went. I also saw my grandmother, Glendy's mom & dad & another aunt there along with a Drew's family & some of their friends. It was totally cute when they were saying their vows to each other since Glendy started crying & then got the rest of the women on my side [except me] to cry, too. It was too romantic I suppose *giggle* But congrats to Glendy & Drew, it's about time! Our family has waited forever for her to get hitched :)
VOLUNTEER @ SEDGEWICK ELEMENTARY--*
Day after the wedding, I had to get my butt up early in the morning to go volunteer with a school-based OT named Jenny [guest speaker in OCTH 110] at Sedgewick Elementary. I was basically observing & playing with the kids in Miss Hannah's preschool classroom which had kids with behavioral issues. From what I found out, there was a girl with autism, another with Downs Syndrome, & a few with low muscle tone. The kids were really sweet though despite myself having trouble communicating since I've always worked with older adults. I got to play with the kids during recess as well before heading to the OT room where there were about 10 kids that needed a half hour of OT. I got to use the sensory integration swing that I saw in the Jean Ayres video, woot! But overall, now I'm even more confused as to what I want to do in OT...
