This is Takao's blog. I am studying Athetic Training at University of South Florida. New entry comes out everyday(hopefully). Am I ever going to have the day when I have a good command of English just like native- speakers? Hope the day will come to me....
This may be more of a challenge than I thought it would be.....
I had an interview at FOI (Florida Orthopedic Institute), and after the interview, I worked under the Certified Athletic Trainer, Mike, for the first time. As I expected, he was nice guy.
After he introduced me to his co-workers, he started to explain how that clinic goes (runs? or any better expression??) But actually, I could hardly understand what he was saying. He used a lot of technical terms, and spoke so first. So actually I got so tired now since I had to concentrate on what he was talking.
But it was a great time for me. I studied a lot. He showed me how to take care of the patients and how to read the medical record. He said they are severely short-handed (OK? or they don't get enough hands???) and need more stuff. I really wanted to help them but I couldn't. I am not certified yet...
Anyway, I realized that working here will be a great experience for me. But, at the same time, I got much more stuff to do....I mean I have to learn not only movement of human body and anatomical stuff, but I also absorb how to read medical records and how to do tons of exercise... I am getting nervous because I am not sure that I could make it through this semester... As I posted yesterday, striking a good balance between school-work and clinical training seems to be a key to succeed in the semester. (OK?) I am sure that, once I get through this challenge, some improvement will appear on me though(Is OK?).
I will work there three days a week and each day has 3-4 hour(OK??) It's gonna be hard to adapt in new environment, but I will be fine because they all were nice. Oh, I have to memorize their names though....I am not good at this at all. To tell the truth, I have a fucking short time memory....

I must be dreaming. Could somebody please pinch me? 私は夢を見ているのに違いない。誰か私をつねってくれない？ I pinched my nose with my fingers to avoid the stench. その悪臭を避けようとして、指で鼻をつまんだ。
