Dairy of A Massage Student

First Day of Student Clinic, Quarter 4
AKA How To Roll With The Flow

Today, we, Fall class of 2017 threw ourselves into the unknown that is Student Clinic. Not to say we weren't given explicit detail on how it would run, but all practicum is messy. This particular practicum has us set up temporary rooms, and for $25 we, under guidance, give hour long massages to strangers.

This entry isn't a play by play of this day. Or a worry about what is to come this quarter. Our last quarter.

This is a love note to my cohort and my teachers.

I am so grateful to these bright and dedicated humans. When I break myself against my own rigid perfectionism, you gather me up again. I am shown again and again, in small and important ways to let go, trust, forgive myself.
Trust and love this place of being a student.

I am grateful for your laughter, and jokes, and hugs, and permission to go cry and be held (because I cannot do all the holding, come to find out).

I am feeling quite blessed to feel my teacher's support, knowing they trust us, trust me, to learn what I need, ask for what I need. You all give me moments of grace under fire.

Thank you. I can see quarter 4 will teach me how to find my own ease.
Alright, loves. Last quarter. Here we go.
