~I really do strive to come up with some witty & interesting things to post, but I feel that I am failing miserably. Guess that's why no one is reading, huh?
~I really want to do the 3 Day Walk for Breast Cancer but it's not being held in a location close to me. Bummed! ETA: it's actually in Atlanta, so not too far away, BUT in order to participate, you have to raise $2300!!!
~Sometimes I have 2nd thoughts about getting my Masters in Mental Health Counseling. Is that REALLY want I want to do for the rest of my life? Honestly, I often think that I don't have any idea what I want to do for the rest of my life, so no matter what I studied, I'd probably feel this way. Great!!
~It also feels like completion of this degree is SO far away. After this semester, I will have 2 classes in the Summer and 2 in the Fall. In January 2010 I will begin my Practicum, followed by Internship. Practicum is 300 hours. Internship is 900. Ultimately that takes me to a graduation date of May 2011. It wouldn't have been dragged out so long but they only let students do Practicum in the Spring and they would not allow me to start this year having been out for the past 1.5 years. So all that to say, I'm just frustrated with life in general. Having no money. Feeling unsuccessful. Having no money. Not having a rich husband who provides enough to allow me to just stay home (like everyone else in playgroup). Feeling unsuccessful. Yeah, you get the point.
~At times I think if a job offer came my way (not likely in this economy), I'd be SOOOO tempted to quit school and just go back to work. *sigh*
~I feel very de-valued these days.
~Looks like it'll be a light day @ work today. I had 3 scheduled appointments when I got here and am now down to only 1. This is good news because I am SO not motivated to be here today. I'm in a funk, I guess.
~On the bright side, I'm happy to report that we were able to repair the washing machine ourselves. The part we needed cost $36. Sears was going to charge $214 for parts & labor!!! Of course, there were many frustrations and cuss words along the way, but in the end, it is fully functioning and a lot cleaner. My laundry room is also very clean now that water spilled all over the floor in the repair process.
