I have been MIA. To anyone who still reads, or cares, I am sorry.
Things have been hectic to say the least. I am in the process of being in my last 5 weeks of graduate school, battling a cold and interviewing for a job as a Chemical Dependency Counselor at a local outpatient facility and as a Clinical Specialist at my internship. Plus working, doing school work (you ALL know the drilly drill)
Today I am happy/relieved. Not that I've put all my eggs in one basket, because I haven't.
Here's why I feel so good. Because as long as I can remember, I've wanted to help people. I was in 3rd grade when I told my mom that was what I planned on doing. I've pretty much been 2nd rate at most things I've tried, especially in sports and definitely in life. Without getting too personal, I can acknowledge that my sense of humor is meant to disguise these feelings of being #2. So here I am, after 3 years of graduate school , sacrificing time/money and a social life to pursue my education and career and here it is.
HERE IT IS!!!!
