Here I Am

Well, as opposed as I am to blogs...I've decided to make one (and I don't even know why). Before I do anything else on this blog, I must warn you that I am not witty and will probably have nothing worthwhile to say about anything important. I guess this will just be an update of a day in the life of yours truly :)!

Having given the warning, here goes nothing. I am anxiously awaiting the end of April 2009 when I will be done indefinitely with schooling. I may go back for a doctorate, but that will only be after 25 years and probably a very serious head injury (it's going to take a lot to forget the wonderful experiences of teachers who think their class is the only one you've signed up for, the late nights trying to study for an ambiguous test, and trying to figure out the answer a teacher wants you to give instead of other possibilities, etc...oh, the joys of school). I did just finish my summer internship that falls into my list of the three hardest things I've done in my life (next to an LDS mission and dating...I haven't experienced marriage yet, which I'm sure will make the list of the top four hardest things I've done in life). Notwithstanding how difficult the internship was, I learned a great deal about the social work field.

I am now about to start my last year of the Masters of Social Work program and am excited (and nervous) for the mysteries and surprises (as well as experiences) that await. No doubt I will keep you updated.

Hey, good to see you in the blogging world David! The "blog bug" seems to be biting more and more people these days. I don't know how you have gone through as much school as you have recently. If it had been me I would've been beating my head up against the wall (I've never been a big fan of school). Hope you're doing well! :)
