Utter Exhaustion…

Yes, I rarely ever write in here. Give me 18 more days and then I’ll post again. Grad school is taking over my life, and while I do take time to write every now and then, a lot of it are little paragraphs of what’s going on, not really blogging material.

Pretty much all of my time is accounted for. I am incredibly exhausted, all the time, in every area. An example of this exhaustion is from November 19, the Friday that I had a major paper due. I spent all week writing, rewriting, editing, last minute researching, and anything else that you can possibly do to a paper. 15-20 pages worth 70% of my grade. So, once I submitted it, I curled up in a chair with a foreign film I’ve been wanting to watch for a long time. I decided that I should have the rest of the night to do nothing productive, because I deserved it. It was about 10:00 pm when I started the movie. At around 11, while I was completely into the film, my eyes felt extremely heavy. I decided to close them, just for a second, so that they could rest a bit. I woke up about an hour later as the movie was ending. I NEVER fall asleep during movies I enjoy. However, my body realized that it no longer had to be awake to actually do things, so it decided it didn’t want to be awake anymore.

I’m officially registered for next semester. I’m taking 17 credits, an extra credit from this semester, so that will be interesting. However, that extra credit is a one credit mini-course (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Children and Adolescents with Anxiety Disorders…I’m excited), which means the class meets for four hours a night for four weeks, and then it’s done. It meets mid-January to mid-February, so I will have about two weeks to get used to my 16 credits before it starts and then a whole two months to work on final projects after it ends. This lightens up my summer load a bit, which is good, because summer is when I need to get really serious about job hunting…

I will be continuing my internship in the winter, and I’m pleased with that. I’m going to start leading group counseling, in addition to the individual counseling that I’m already doing and will continue. There’s also a possibility that I’ll be able to help with family sessions. I’m excited to do more hands-on stuff.

Okay, that’s as much of an update as I’m going to do now…I really should be working on a paper, but I have very little motivation for it. My last paper is due December 17, so don’t bother checking back till then…I highly doubt I’ll update before that.
