Hey, long time no talk! Life has been crazy busy with the start of physical therapy school, and, somehow, the summer session is already half over! I am thankful for Ryan and the rest of my family for being patient with me during this adjustment to a new chapter in life because my emotions and stress levels have had some wild ups and downs during the past six weeks! At the start of June, Ryan and I wanted to go to a new restaurant called DanDan, but realized it was only open for one more hour. Thankfully, we found another restaurant called Red Light Ramen that was open until 1am. It was a cozy space with only a few tables and an open kitchen that allowed you to watch your food being prepared. For drinks, Ryan ordered their house slushie of the week and I tried the "Joto Blue Clouds" sparkling sake.
I ordered the "Tonkotsu" ramen that came with pork, scallion, mushroom, bamboo shoots, nori, fish cake, egg, and greens. We loved the ramen so much that we bought supplies to make our own! For dessert, we ordered a dish called "Ginger Semifreddo" and the only ingredients listed were cherry and black sesame. I'm not sure what this dish really contained, but it was delicious!
My roommates and I went shopping for a day and then got strawberry cheesecake ice cream from Kopp's Frozen Custard. This was our last outing together as roommates because I moved out at the end of June for an exciting new adventure.
I saw these sweet pups outside of a store while on my way to Belair Cantina for margaritas and tacos with my roommate Kassy. These pups looked so happy and friendly! I cannot wait for the day I am financially stable enough to have a dog! Dinner at Belair was much needed! My roomie and I had not had a good chat in ages because we've both been so busy this summer.
Ryan and I also went on our last bike and dinner date in June before my bike was stolen a week later. We biked on the Oakleaf Trail to the lakefront and Discovery World area. After stopping to admire the views, we headed over to the Third Ward to visit the restaurant DanDan.
Check out the post below this one for a more detailed account of our experience at DanDan. To summarize: great food! Check it out if you're in the area!
Mini update on mah plants: the cactus propagations I planted in May have officially taken root and have sprouted new shoots out their tops. I also found a plant for the funky white planter Ryan printed for me a couple months ago. The plant roots fit in the shallow pot and the tendrils hang out the sides. My mini garden has been rearranged since moving apartments and this weekend I hope to pick up even more while I am outside of Milwaukee!
Since physical therapy school has been keeping me so busy, I'll share some more about that. This summer I am taking human anatomy, medical physiology, and introduction to physical therapy examination technique. In anatomy we have covered the shoulder, cervical spine, elbow, forearm, and wrist. Medical physiology has covered neurons, muscle contraction, and an overview of the endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, and renal systems. Intro to PT exam has taught us how to evaluate the upper extremity using palpation, goniometry, muscle length testing, and manual muscle testing. I have learned a lot in the past 6 weeks and am looking forward to what we cover next! Thanks for reading!
