1. …you
    look around the room while you’re studying at night and notice that you’re keeping
    company with life sized spines and vertebral models with bulging discs.
  2. …one
    model spine is not enough, you must have a desk size as well.
  3. …you
    consider taking your model spine to the coffee shop to study…
  4. …you
    have a t-shirt that says “Chiropractic Student… just add coffee”.
  5. …you
    are taking “Standard Processing” Adrenal Support supplements to get you through
    the quarter.
  6. …you
    proudly know how to do the “Toggle Dance”!
  7. …your
    “pick list” for Anatomy lab is getting…um…stained.
  8. …you
    have intense discussions with fellow students about what Universal Intelligence
    is.
  9. …and
    you wonder whether the chiropractor moves the vertebrae or if innate does the
    work?
  10. …you
    love how B.J. made up words when he wrote and wish you could too…
  11. …you
    wonder which is most important; the art, the science or the philosophy of
    Chiropractic?
  12. …you
    and your fellow students discuss the concept of the “three-legged stool.”
  13. …you
    have a lab coat that reeks of formaldehyde.
  14. …you
    wonder what ever happened to Mabel?
  15. …you
    think about having crazy collections of things like B.J. did.
  16. …you
    wonder if it’s easier to be an intern than to study the “hard sciences.”
  17. …you
    hope your intern will pass their hard earned knowledge and wisdom down to you!
  18. …you
    wonder whether Uncle George will let you adjust him someday?
  19. …you
    have a dog named…B.J., Mable, Palmer, Sherman or Logan.
  20. …you
    see health as an expression of life not an absence of disease.
  21. …YOU
    CAN’T WAIT TO DO YOUR FIRST ADJUSTMENT!!!!
  22. …and
    last but not least…YOU’RE SURE YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD AND MAKE IT A BETTER PLACE,
    ONE SPINE AT A TIME!!!
