Back in the Graduate School Saddle Again...

I’m about two thirds finished with my Master’s Degree in Counseling.  My sub-degree is in School Counseling.  I haven’t talked much about this side of my life because when this blog began, I was on summer break and started to focus predominantly on my writing.  However, my degree is something I am extremely proud of because growing up, my favorite phrase in school was, “I’m totally accepting of adequacy.”  I was perfectly happy to get B’s or C’s for grades.  If I didn’t love the subject area, I didn’t care about success.  I’m actually still the same way about certain subjects. Take sports for instance – I have absolutely no sports skills.  None. Not a lick.  And I was perfectly happy to get a C in Physical Education.  However, everything changed when I found counseling.  It clicked.  I’ve always been a writer and it definitely is my passion.  However, counseling is my calling.  Does that make sense?  I will always write – it is how I breathe at the end of the day, it’s how I share the parts of me that don’t flow easily from my lips, it’s my therapy.  But what about helping others, not just myself? That’s where counseling comes in.  The ability to actually save a child from a destructive situation, or help a family grieving with a loss – this is where I find my life moving beyond that “acceptance of adequacy” and striving for greatness.    

So this week I started a special summer session class and I’m back in the school groove.  And it feels great.  However, I haven’t missed the homework.  I’m finding that martinis and response journals do not go hand in hand.  This might put a wrench in my nightly ritual… Though, it might make for some interesting term papers…

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
