As someone who works in the human services field, I must always remember to live in the moment. Social workers, psychologist, case managers, therapist, etc. we all need to be present. We can’t move the world for our patients, but we can give them the tools to do it themselves. Empower and be aware of your own strengths and weaknesses!

Wanting #1

Studying at 8:35pm on a Thursday night? No problem! The life of a graduate student going through the most hectic week thus far. I’ve had so many emotions going through me from hating, loving, feeling special, excited, and persistent in my program = ALL THIS WEEK! By this time tomorrow night I will be stress-free with lovely people all around me. Can’t wait for the Happy Hour tomorrow with my cohort. If any social work students are reading this, keep at it!

My last weekend as a gal who doesn’t have anything tying her down. Graduate school is starting next week and my internship soon follows after, eck!

Two of a kind

The first picture has my college ring that came in the mail this week. I love it! I never got my high school ring so to have this one means a lot. I’m extremely happy to have finished my degree with such good grades and on a happy note.

The second photo was taken in Berkeley last Sunday. Stephen and I went to eat at some French place that was all organic. We both enjoyed the food and vibe of the little shack. Can’t wait to go back!

Sleep Deprived

For the last two weeks I have been on 7 planes in total. I have been in three different states with my sleeping scheduling being messed up. As I stated before, I got into CSULB for my Master’s. I was apart of 200 applicants that were accepted from the 1,200 applicants. I feel special to have this wonderful opportunity. My life has been extremely bumping but everything has lead up to this moment. In two years I will have a Master’s, Bachelors’, and an Associates Degree. I am the first in my family to receive a degree and the first to have gone to college. To those who say minorities shouldn’t/can’t progress in this nation, check me out. I am American, I am Mexican, and I am a woman: watch me head to the top!

Spending some time in tonight to work on some homework. I’d rather do some homework today and have my day free tomorrow. Very hungry and not looking forward to the school/work week.

Tea & Reading

I don’t necessarily love writing essays but because the assignment has gotten me closer to understanding our exportation of mental illness, I do love this assignment. 

I’ve been reading Crazy Like Us which is a fascinating book that deserves to be recognized and seen as a beneficial book to purchase. The author discusses how our American notions of mental illness have been exported to other countries that don’t necessarily experience these illnesses the same way as we do. In some cases, these illnesses, that are present in our culture and present time, aren’t even illustrated in other parts of the world. For example, anorexia nervosa in the last twenty years has had an epidemic effect in China. 

I encourage anyone that enjoys learning about other cultures and their mental health, along with our own in this country, should buy the book. I’ll get back to that essay now.

Finals week is coming up and I am so not ready, eck! Any of my followers in college/high school and know what I’m going through? My recommendation is to drink tons of coffee and actually read your textbooks.
