Clarity

This weekend has been supa supa busy! I’ve wanted to post about a few different things that have happened but never had the time to do it. So here is a wrap up of the weekend:

Friday was a pretty busy day for me. It started out with work which included group therapy in the morning and one individual session, then prepping for summer camp which starts today!! We had to move all of our supplies from the clinic to the summer camp space that we will be using today. It was a lot of stuff, luckily I have awesome people who work with me and they loaded up their cars and brought it all over 🙂 After work was the real fun though! I headed to BG to reunite with my bestie for some “Bachelorette Party Re-do” events. We had such a blast at her party in Florida, that we wanted to recreate it. Unfortunately, the other ladies had stuff to do over the weekend so the good times were up to us! We started the night with this:

It was so funny! We were laughing the whole time. We thought the story could have been developed a little more, but it was a good flick none the less. After the movie we headed to Raffertys for some drinks and food. Yum! And ended the night with party crashing on the sorority president. I am an advisor for my sorority on campus and the president was having a birthday celebration. I wanted to just run in and see her for a minute and leave so that’s what we did!

Saturday Sam and I were able to hang out with some friends for another b-day celebration. We went to a hibachi grill and saw a movie with everyone. Another fantastic night. And Sunday was full of meetings while Sam prepared for camp. I had an advisory board meeting for the sorority then I had a meeting for students interested in gaining their PHD.

This meeting really interested me because I have kind of thought about the idea of getting a PHD because I feel that in my field you can never get too much education. They type of PHD we discussed was Counselor Education. This degree preps you to be a professor. We discussed the ins and outs of the programs and the nitty gritty that can really freak you out. It was very very helpful though.

The meeting helped me gain some clarity with the direction I want to go in. I don’t think that getting a PHD, at least that type, is in the cards for me. I really enjoy my work and being actively involved with people. I don’t think I will be fulfilled working as a professor. Working part time, teaching a class here and there would be nice, and something I’d like to check out, but full time teaching isn’t exactly for me.

I am really grateful that I was able to go and discuss my concerns and questions at the meeting. It was very small group of us, just four students and two faculty, so we were able to really ask questions that were on our minds. This helped me figure out the direction I want, at this point, for my life.

I am very excited about the possibilities of the future and somewhat excited that, at this point, it doesn’t include a dissertation! Haha!!

Today is the first day of camp at work 🙂 Prayers are welcome!!
