Back to Grad School

Here we go again! Back to school! This year will be my last year of school EVER and this time I mean it!

After undergrad, I took almost three years off from school to focus on getting that professional experience I needed and really I just wanted a break from school.

During my time off I heard lots of : “it’s really hard to take a break and then go back to school,” but I usually just shrugged it off. I’m a goal setter so going back to school to get my masters was the goal I was working toward. Once I put a goal in mind then that’s my focus so there was no doubt that I was going back to school.

Sure, going back to school was difficult but it was mainly just an adjustment. I had to adjust to sitting in class for several hours, writing in APA, and reading A TON (I think that’s what grad school is all about.) But overall it hasn’t been anything I can’t handle.

I’m excited for this year which seems like it’s going to be very busy but hey that’s a good thing. I’ll have two days of classes and three days at my internship. This year I decided to do my internship at a high school. I have no experience in a school setting so I thought I would give it a try to see if it’s something that I want to pursue in the future. ¬†After this year I’ll have a school social work license on top of my LSW.

And of course, I’m most excited for graduation and getting my big girl job. For real, going back to school has been one of the best decisions I have ever made and I can’t wait to see what my future has in store for me.

I’ll leave you with a pic from the olden days at the best school ever…OU!
