Rocky Road Muffins

This one goes out to all my fellow DPT 3rd years who are just finishing up PT802! I know it’s been a looooong road (and probably a little rocky!) to get to where we are today, but just think- we’ll be done in three months and we graduate in four! Make a batch of these “Rocky Road Muffins” this weekend to kick off your week off, and think about all the things you’ve learned over the past few years- both in the classroom and the clinic, but also outside of both as you’ve balanced school/family/personal lives. Wherever you end up next, keep that head up (and shoulders back, and chin tucked!) and make this next 12 weeks worth it.

Or just do it for the chocolate.
