I’m Not Dead, I Promise

I realize that it has been an exceptionally long time since I posted anything. Life has been busy, but I thought I would give you a quick update.

I finished training and passed my test on July 15th. The following Monday, I began having an official caseload, and now my caseload is full. I currently love my job. Everyday is something different and all the families I work for are completely unique. It’s fantastic. There are so many stories I have, however they will not be shared on here, since there’s that whole confidentiality thing.

My Summer semester was done at the beginning of August. Next week, on Tuesday, the Fall semester will begin. I only have four credits left to complete my MSW, and I managed to plan my classes so that these last four credits are all electives. I’m taking a class on Interpersonal Violence and another class on Attachment Through the Life Spans. Should be interesting. In December, I will finally be done with grad school.

And as of yesterday, I have moved into my own apartment! Obviously things are not yet set up completely, but I’m getting there. I still have to move some things from my parents’ house to my new apartment, but I already love it here. Earlier I sat in silence with the window open and the breeze coming in. It was beautifully peaceful. I am happy.

Hopefully I will be able to write more now that things are beginning to slow down, but I make no promises. After all, there are a million bloggers that have stated they would write more who eventually just die. But I will try, that much I can say, and hopefully my updates will be interesting.
