One Last Push!

Six final exams down and 5 to go! The full-time 4-year naturopathic program at CCNM is not for the faint of heart and may not be advisable for anybody intending to keep one foot in the 'real world' and the other in naturopathic school (note: more part-time options are becoming available).

Focused curiosity is everything! Nearly every day I made a short list of things that were 'interesting' to me and I researched them. Also, I found that I had no choice but to live, breath, eat, talk, sleep, and dream naturopathic medicine for the last 3 years in order to keep the vast breadth of knowledge I learned applicable and current in my memory. This meant that my wife (and family and friends when I saw them) have had to put up with about three-quarters of the conversations ending up being something about medicine.

As a male, I will never be able to fully appreciate the experience of having a baby. Although, I have been at my wife's side twice (most recently two weeks ago) so I do have a better idea than some. As such, I am going to make a small leap here and say that I feel that there is just one last push remaining in this school year, with all the effort, the pain and eventually joy that accompanies the experience. Thank God for the joy!
