At the 1st ever PDW I helped organize!
Though I didn’t play as big of a role in organizing behind the scenes as I had hoped (1st year of the program itself was an uphill battle lol), I thoroughly learned a lot from the conversations that came from it & in observing the process of putting it together.
Overall, I’m just really happy I was able to be around the PhD project again. Though I was all sorts of exhausted, MDSA & sessions such as these, helped hit the motivation reset button for me again. 💜
My two moods during pharmacy school. Next week the new chapter begins. Free medication consultation to all my best bihs 🙆🏻♀️💊💊 #glowup #pharmacist #graduate #graduateschool
PS: those wondering about the marks in my feet, those are ant bites...long story short they migrate from the bushes outside my window to my bed and bite the shit outta me 🤷🏻♀️ #약사 #셀스타그램 #셀카

muna bago mapasabak sa laban ang mga brain cells ko. Lol! 😂
So, today I stumbled upon the fact that my favorite OT book has a newer edition!
Pedretti has been my OT bible as a student and now I have the newest 8th edition!
Yes, I understand this is a very nerdy post but I cannot express how pumped I am to own this thing!
One of my biggest issues with the previous edition was that the language did not reflect the OTPF-3, so sometimes it was hard to read from the text and then apply it to current lectures or vice-versa.
Anyways, this is not an issue anymore as I have the newest edition 😁
Its the little things in life people!!! @ot_miri
do you have this newest edition? 😁 is it weird to get excited about this??? #pedretti #otstudent #graduateschool #otd #occupationaltherapy #occupation #textbooks #skills #student #college #nerd #read #learn #otpf
I have to pat myself on the back. I just completed my first year of graduate school and have maintained my 4.0 GPA all three semesters! As an added bonus, one of my professors was so impressed with my final paper that she said to submit it for publication. She also told me that based on my knowledge and writing ability that I should consider a Ph.D. program! 😮 I think I'll focus on finishing graduate school for now, but it was nice to be complimented on my work! 😁
This just goes to show you that you can do anything you put your mind to! I second guessed my ability to work, attend graduate school and be a parent, all at the same time. I also felt like quitting school many times throughout this past year. It's been incredibly challenging, but it also feels so good to finally be doing something for myself again and to feel a huge sense of accomplishment. One year down, two more years to go!
I start my first social work internship next week and am super excited to begin working directly with clients! #graduateschool #gradschool #gradschoolmom #gradschoollife #mastersdegree #mastersinsocialwork #specialneedsmom #preemiemom
First textbook showed up yesterday. The first day is so close! 📚
НЕОБХОДИМЫЕ ЭКЗАМЕНЫ ДЛЯ ПОСТУПЛЕНИЯ В АМЕРИКАНСКИЙ УНИВЕРСИТЕТ
Привет! Наверное, для вас уже не секрет, что я поступил в University of Houston.
Некоторые из вас писали мне в директ, поздравляли и спрашивали, что нужно, чтобы поступить в американский ВУЗ. Поэтому я решил написать про это несколько постов – начнём со вступительных экзаменов для магистратуры или аспирантуры.
1. Вам нужно подтвердить своё владение английским языком. И никому не важно, что вы регулярно по пол года бываете, например, в Англии. Увы. Другое дело, если у вас есть диплом бакалавра, который вы получили его за рубежом.
В основном, университеты США принимают сертификаты IELTS или TOEFL. Некоторые ВУЗы предпочитают какой-то один, но всё равно принимают оба. Требования по минимальным баллам у каждого университета свои, бывают даже различия между программами. Конкретно в Хьюстонском университете требуется, чтобы минимальный общий балл за IELTS был 6.5 и не было секции меньше 5.5, TOEFL – 79 или 550 (онлайн и бумажные тесты соответственно).
2. Чтобы подтвердить свои академические навыки некоторые институты требуют GMAT и/или GRE General (без профиля) и/или GRE Subject. Также есть тесты MCAT для медиков и LSAT для юристов. Лично я сдавал только GRE General. Информацию относительно минимальных баллах по этим тестам вы найдете на сайте не каждого университета. Бывает, нужно дополнительно писать на почту руководителю образовательной программы, чтобы уточнить этот вопрос.
3. Ещё одно испытание продолжительностью 4+ года – это ваш диплом бакалавра. Часто ВУЗы предъявляют требования к минимальному среднему баллу. У меня это было 8.26 по десятибалльной шкале. Не так уж и много, если объективно рассуждать.
4. Две-три рекомендации от ваших преподавателей. Желательно, чтобы у ваших рекомендателей были регулярные публикации в международных изданиях.
5. И последнее, пожалуй, самое важное. Это мотивационное письмо. Но для него, если будет спрос, нужен отдельный пост.
Исследуйте Google и спрашивайте в комментариях, если остались какие-нибудь вопросы.
Under a tree sounds nice 👌🏼
Quando estudava na Universidade de Toronto eu passava meus dias no campus St George, lendo, escrevendo, estudando, participando de aulas e cursos. Eu posso dizer que explorei o local demais e conheço cada cantinho de lá - afinal, foram 4 anos submersos em estudos e muita aprendizagem. Dos lugares que eu mais gostava de estudar estão as bibliotecas, sempre com um ar gótico e uma beleza inigualável. Está aqui é a Geirsten Library, mais especificamente o Quiet Room de lá. Isso mesmo: quiet room é um espaço onde conversas não são permitidas e nem batidas fortes de teclado. Especificamente nesta sala há aberturas solares no teto e podemos pegar sol enquanto estudamos no silêncio. Maravilhoso. #uoftlife #uoft #gersteinlibrary #torontolife #vidadeestudante #phdlife #studentlife #graduateschool #torontoclicks #toronto_insta
Spotlight: “My research is in category theory, which I like to think of as the 'mathematics of mathematics': whereas mathematics looks at the real world, identifies patterns and structures and then studies those patterns and structures, category theory does the same thing for mathematics, relating results in one area of the subject to those in seemingly unrelated areas. In the work I did for my thesis, I use the theoretical tools of category theory to identify algebraic structures in dependent type theory, which is the same kind of logical system that underlies functional programming languages.” • Fun Fact: One of the things I've enjoyed most during my time in Pittsburgh is exploring the city by bike, but Pittsburgh's abundance of potholes saw the better of me when I accidentally hit one last month — I fell off my bike and had to type my entire thesis with a broken finger.
Have you ever heard the phrase “one-stoplight town”? It refers to small towns that have a small enough population and sparse enough traffic that one stoplight can do the trick. Radiator Springs definitely falls into this category! In order to re-create the look and feel of a real small town along Route 66 for the Cars movie, Pixar hired a team of historians and artists to do research. They stopped into stores and restaurants, took notes, and talked to the locals. I wonder how I can get that job!
Dr. Nicole Gatto sends us her ❤️ along with her students from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia! 🇲🇳 CGU representing from across the world!
DrPH student Amay S. is wrapping up her summer internship with @centeronbudget
in Washington D.C. we look forward to hearing about her experience in an upcoming Advanced Parcticum presentation. Where are you spending your last few weeks of summer? 🏢
When you look at a painting by Matisse, there is evidence of his humanness, of a corporeal self. Evidence of the use of muscle, bones and tissue that allowed him to hold that brush and create those zipping red strokes. Place a Hendrix record on. Jimi's hands touched those strings, he cinched them, he pulled them, he hit them with his pick, he made those wailings and moans come from something. You are hearing his organic body interacting with an inanimate body. Literature is entirely different than other mediums because of a lack of a body. When I am reading Virginia Woolf, her body is not present in any shape or form of how I am interacting with the text. Yes, of course, her hands were used to hold a pen, just like how Kerouac's tips jazzed away on the typewriter. But, I feel like writer's have a greater task, perhaps burden, to translate nothingness (abstract thought as the product of chemical reactions in the brain, which is contained in a body) into a reality that exists contained within itself (a virtual reality, I suppose). We are further removed from this Lord Byron guy than Chopin. His words must carry the evidence that he indeed was a living, breathing, somebody instead of a piece of machinery labeled, "Byron" to pass off as romantic, to pass of as poetry. Perhaps writers have to also prove their own existence as well as create plots, characters, and so on. I don't believe we read books to understand humanity better. I think, on some level, we read books to better understand our own mortality. That, we too, are just a fusion of arbitrary symbols arranged into thought, emotion, personality, etc. Perhaps even reducible to text?
I mean this in more than a "you are a number" way. What is literary embalming? I read books to understand this process. I like to read and think, "How is this book doing what it is doing?" more than I am excited by how it makes me "feel." Maybe that is where that ho-hum pinky-up-high-brown phrase "writer's writer" comes from. (Ew. But yes?)
