Assignment 1- Professional integration
I chose chapters 4, containing material on the musculoskeletal system and chapter 6, and containing material on the cardiovascular and lymphatic system. I chose these two chapters because there was material in each that I was unclear about and needed some extra time put in to learn these topics. In the musculoskeletal system, I have had troubles with keeping the anatomical planes separate and which motion is in what plane, need to review the energy systems, and the components of the shoulder I do not feel confident in. A few reasons I chose the cardiovascular system are arterial blood gas volumes, pharmacology, and some of the test procedures. The concepts that are the most clear to me is the anatomy of the heart, most of the pathologies pertaining to the cardiovascular system, the pathology of the airway of the lungs, percussion and postural drainage procedures, airway clearance and coughing techniques, gait patterns and gait terminology, lower extremity joints, muscle receptors, and manual muscle test grades.

I started working on the assignment January 3rd. I probably should of started right when Christmas break started, but I needed a break from all the studying I had been doing with finals. During the week, I am finding it is really hard to fit in studying because I am exhausted from the day at work. Whenever we have down time or a patient cancels, I will study at my internship. If that does not happen, I fit in 2 evenings for an hour or so depending on the night to study. Then on weekends, I will fit in a couple hours. The cardiopulmonary and lymphatic system chapter took me the longest to finish. It is harder for me to read that because it is not as interesting to me as other sections. I would read 5 pages and take a break and go back and read another 5 more and so on depending on the day. I did my readings at home in my room or at my kitchen

    Just that little bit of time has helped me feel more refreshed when i get home and i can get going on homework without feeling tired or like i 'm running out of time. During the football season it seemed like there was no time to get homework done if you had a full day of school. If you got out of school at 3:15 you got a little relaxing time before practice started. What really made things difficult was zero period in the morning for about 30 minutes then a full 7 hours of school to wear you out followed by a couple hours of practise. When you get home at around 7 pm you 're so exhausted from the day that you just want to eat a meal and get some sleep.…

    Last semester was definitely the hardest for me. I have two challenging research papers toward the end of the semester. I find it hard because I did not know what to write about and which assignments I should start on first. I manage to overcome this challenge by narrowing the topics and start on the paper that was closest to deadline. My stress level was at 10 because I skip meals and stayed up all night long to finish my papers.…

    College takes up about 80% of my life, because I put it before a lot of other things. It’s hard to maintain good grades and a social life at the same time, so I have to choose between one or the other. Sometimes there’s weeks I forget to talk to my family, because I’m so overwhelmed with my classes. It’s hard to maintain relationships like in high school where you devote seven hours of your day to school and then the rest of the day you have to yourself and others. Maintaining a job can be difficult also Saturday is my only day off from class and I work with my dad from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. and then from there I go to my other job at the restaurant and I work at from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. so my whole day off is devoted to working.…

    Sometimes I am not able to have lunch because I would rather miss that than class. I also have doctor appointments in Sioux Falls about once a month. Another way it has affected me was that right after surgery I had to miss about a week and half to two weeks of school. After that, I was only able to come about half days due to my stamina being down due to all my pain. I had to work extra hard to catch back up to everyone else.…

    Second, if you want to manage your working time, you have to set how many days-off you have each week and month (Donoghue, 2006). You may be working 4 days a week. You may determine to go for work for two days and to relax for one day. Either way, you must not overwork because it might affect the other two purposes. Even though attending class and completing assignments is a top priority for most students, many find that they are not allowing enough time for their studies.…

    Sometimes I procrastinate and before I know it I am only left with only a half hour to get all of my homework done for the next day. In the beginning of the semester, I viewed myself as overwhelmed, nervous and dependent. I had a lot of anxiety about the semester and I did not know how I would juggle both school and work. I also leaned on other people a lot because I was nervous that I would not do well in college. But that view of myself has changed.…

    I felt like I was spinning my wheels because after a whole year went by I still didn’t have any real credits on my transcript (after I failed a couple of classes and had to withdraw from a few more). It was also a huge waste of money to only attend part-time. I was paying for a lot of classes that never made it on to my transcript. This time around, I want to make the most of Student 2 every semester and the financial aid I receive, so that I can move on to a four-year university after just two years. I will also need to be sure to attend class sessions regularly.…

    For example, in high school I would miss at least two days every other week. If I didn’t feel like going to school I just stayed in bed. Some days I use to go to school for the first three class periods and leave at the end of third period because I was ready to go home. In high school you could miss twenty days and still pass. Another example, is when I made it to college I seen the difference very quickly if I missed a class period in college I was behind because the professor is discussing something new the next class section.…

    Four-Day School Week Every student in public school has said that the weekend just went by too quick. They also complain that they didn’t have enough time to complete a homework assignment because they were too busy during the weekend. Teachers probably feel rushed by all the papers that need to be graded before Monday starts back up. Everything just seems to be crammed into five days and there isn’t enough recovery time at the end. On the other hand, a four-day school week, everything isn’t crammed into four days and there is more recovery time at the end of the school week.…

    I also learned many things about setting a goal. It was very difficult for me to find time for me to read 30 minutes a day, therefore I was not able to finish the book. I usually had ponderous amount of time wasted on homework that did not help me read the book. On an average day, I would go home around 4:00PM since that is when Calculus tutoring ends. Then I would spend roughly 4-5 hours on my homework from all my classes.…
