Half-Way Through Summer Session I

Five weeks into my first summer session of grad school, my life is a whirlwind. With the semester only being 10 weeks long, everything is compacted. Currently I am working on 2 midterms, a research proposal (not a real one, just a sample for class!) and working with an APD client. Since I have been stressed out (with ample zits to prove it) I decided to take some time to be creative and start a blog. With my current abundant desire for creativity, I also spent way too much time creating a 2-step direction game (for auditory comprehension) that would keep my client motivated. Here’s the link to it: 2 Step Directions Game. If you happen to download it, I apologize for the imperfections and blank pages. This was my first time creating a game, and I need to learn how to use technology better. In my next post I will let you all know how well it works!

While blogging is currently helping me relax, I wanted to provide some other links that might help all you other SPAA students calm down.

For the exercise guru: Blogilates Beginner’s Calendar. While  I not so silently curse Cassie as she leads me through these workouts, they are great short videos to help get some blood flowing.

For the avid reader:5 minutes reads. While some of these reads are what I call lofty, they are a great way to momentarily forget about all your homework.

For the person who loves Buzzfeed as much as I do:What Baby Animal Are You? While I know these quizzes are arbitrary, I still take about every third one I see.

I hope these help anyone else who is as stressed out as I am! If you have any other advice let me know.
