angiepants [one pocket at a time]

Hi, I'm a 24 year old Long Island raised lady who became a grown adult (aka: 6 years for undergrad and grad schooling) in Philly, home of squished pretzels and 'brotherly' love. I've traveled over the northeast coast and even once to the Midwest for clinical rotations. I'm finishing my final one back in good ole' Philly this summer. I'm on the track to finish my Doctorate in Physical Therapy degree and then take my licensure test this fall.

I'm known to geek over anything anatomy or adaptive sports. You’ll find me stopping to pick flowers for my hair, living waist deep in my studies or spending the weekend cooking up a storm.

I'm an Aries and ENFJ by nature.

My favorites are fruit, artsy things, wearing aprons and sprawling down on the ground instead of actual chairs. This is my place of inspirations, thoughts, and daily occurrences. Enjoy.

Shepherd Center Begins the Final Stage of its Clinical Trials for Robotics-Assisted Walking Device

It’s amazing to see this take off.  If all goes well after the 2015 trials, it could be put on the market!

I love how the PT states things - "the input their central nervous system so desperately needs".  

Another great point is that those with quadriplegia (with some assistance) can use it too.

The rest of the article can be read here.

I moved into my new house in NorthEast Philly today (to be closer in commute to my hospital job) - no looking back.
This means I’m no longer in my loved area of the heart of the city life (aka: South Philly, Old City, West Philly or Center City).

Or it just means - I’m super busy, I really just don’t care or have time to take time in answering.  
Either way, still not a desirable text response.

In the Ideal to Real TODAY/AOL Body Image survey, teenage girls revealed something unexpected: 65 percent said seeing their selfies on social media actually boosts their confidence…

The TODAY/AOL findings findings echo emerging social science on the impact of social media on self-presentation and self-image. Selfies seem inconsequential or goofy, but they can actually be incredibly important to teenagers, because they give teens a way to control the image of themselves that they’re showing to the world, experts say.

'It’s the first time you get to be the photographer and the subject of the photograph,' says Pamela Rutledge, director of the Media Psychology Research Center, who has written extensively about this subject, particularly as it applies to teenagers and/or Millennials. 'Even though that seems very simple, that’s an extraordinary shift, historically. And control makes people believe in themselves.'

The Dish on this Past Weekend

Bacon Corn Chowder: Huge batch in one pot?  Allowed to work out its simmer with some cayenne and a good chunk of Old Bay? I’m done for that.  As a heads up, I made this gluten free by using cornstarch instead of flour (it thickened it up a bit more too).  I always use turkey bacon too because I don’t eat pig products.  Recipe here.

Pineapple Mint Gin Punch:  This was the perfect summer sipper the last weekend in august.  I shared this one with my housemates, we all approved - a lot.  Recipe here.

Pumpkin Protein Buckwheat Bake x 2: This was the first thing I made in my new ‘1 month home’ today.  It made the kitchen smell lovely!  Recipe here.

Besides these, I held back on my cooking.  I was moving into my new housing situation.  But my Father brought me a batch of gluten free baked clams from Long Island he caught last week.  Plus I ate at a lovely, polish/americana themed cafe called Porta and then had a stellar local mushroom sald (with melted fontina and perfectly mixed with a lemon thyme vinagerette) at Birra.  I will miss South Philly.

Last night living in South Philly - bags and boxes packed.  This will be my 4th (of 5 total) moves this summer.  Granted - most of the bulk is in the kitchen supplies, but overall, after all these I’ve gain some respect to being more of a minimalist.
P.S. I’ve decided I’m not cutting/donating my hair until at least January/February.  Stuff is gonna be real long.

Went out for food & drinks (plus some dancing) with 3/5 housemates during my last night living in South Philly.

I will definitely miss Christina, this vivacious individual who helps me enjoy the passions of life.
