If I ever start a non-profit, I’m going to channel Sandi Patty and recreate 4:04-5:00 at the ground breaking ceremony.

If you’re a social worker, therapist, or experience regular exposure to trauma on the job in any capacity, you need to buy this book ASAP.

The ol’ cigarette flu ain’t all that bad, y’all

I don’t have any finals due for two weeks but I’ve already finished one and I’m working on another right now. Thanks, illness!

If I finish all my finals within the next week my last month of school is going to laughably easy/all I’m going to do is drink and be merry in Williamsburg.

3 and a half hours at the office

and no one has showed up.

5 cancellations. Only 2 more people left on the schedule. And I have to stay here until 7 because of supervision. 

This means that in an 8 hour work day, MAYBE I’ll see clients for 1 hour. 

This is miserable. 

I like working,

not simply BEING at work. 

Why can’t I just go home and tumbl while in my bed?

UPDATE: OMGBBQ AT LEAST 1 OF THE 2 REMAINING CLIENTS SHOWED UP GAAAH HOORAY

One of my clients shared the trauma narrative we’ve been working on together with her entire church (about 80 people). To those of you who aren’t familiar with PTSD or Narrative Therapy, I know this post might not mean much to you, but I’m basically trying to hold back a river of happy feels tears right now. 

So proud of her and so thankful for her progress. This is one of those brief, brilliant moments in life when I feel like I actually have purpose.

I’m done with my Diagnostic Mid-Term! Now I’m going to celebrate by listening to this relevant song on repeat while I insert citations.
