Mini Update

Is it really March? How is that possible? How is it possible that I will start doing therapy - real therapy - in a little over a month? Do I sound nervous? Am I asking too many questions? Ok, I'll stop that for now.

But really, 2009 is flying by. This is both a good and bad thing. Lord knows I'm ready to be done with school BUT I'm not entirely ready for all the changes on the horizon. On April 15th, we are able to start seeing clients. Ahh! AND (as if that were not enough) we start our internships. Mine will be at the Family Violence Program of Pitt County. It was my first choice so I'm quite excited about that but also slightly terrified. Domestic violence is not a light subject, after all. It will be a challenge and I think I have my work cut out for me. We're currently on Spring Break and that's hard for me to believe. Last semester, I felt like I was waiting and waiting for Fall Break and this semester - boom - Spring Break. I was supposed to be in Orlando right now but alas, that fell through...for a couple different reasons. I think I made the right choice on that front though, in retrospect. Oh well...I hope my friends have had a good time.

Last weekend was Tiffany's bachelorette party and it was a pretty wild night. Tiffany is married now! That's hard to wrap my mind around. Actually, it's hard to imagine any of my friends getting married. Am I really old enough to be getting married? Well, obviously, I'm not getting married but to have friends who are is a bit of a reality check. Tiffany was my RA freshmen year and that's how we met. Then, she became my feminist role model of sorts. We lost touch for a bit last year but we've since reconnected. Unfortunately, she and her new hubby are moving to Canada in the spring. Hopefully, we'll stay in touch via Facebook and e-mail. I'll miss her.

Speaking of weddings, Laura and Aaron's wedding is this Saturday. Again, hard to believe. This will surely be the highlight of my Spring Break. I'm quite excited to be a bridesmaid and to have a part in their big day. They're a great couple. I hope someday to meet someone who I mesh with as well as they do. Ah, I can dream...
