I forgot that I hadn't posted it here, but I have a job! And it's even in my field! I now work for Mosaic Community Services, a non-profit specializing in mental health and addiction. I'm a psychiatric rehabilitation counselor (not a therapist, so I don't have to be licensed), running groups and managing a case load of 18 people. My big job is running the groups, but I also work with my 18 clients to come up with goals and help them try to reach them. I've been working for 3 weeks (tomorrow is my fourth Monday there) and I'm already a little worn down. I understand even more now why there's so much burnout and such a high turn over rate in this field.

Currently watching the USA v. El Salvador right now. If I could, I would be downtown watching it live (because it's at our football field, dammit!), but I already got to go to the USA v. Germany friendly in DC at the beginning of June.

I also recently rewatched the entirety of Kamen Rider Double/W, and finally finished Kamen Rider OOO. I'd put it off for so long, and I was appropriately heart broken by the ending. Also, I've become a huge fan of Miura Ryosuke because of this. I've seen a bit of Fourze, but I'm not as interested in it or Wizard as I was with the other two. I'll give them a chance, though.

I'm back! I only mostly died while I was away, and just had the week from hell come to an end. I swear, I either missed or was late to no less than three important things, had a test for Research Methods (the class I'm pretty sure will be the death of me) last an entire period AND THEN two hours after so that I missed dinner as well, and just yesterday one of my friends was hit by a car while on his bike and not wearing a helmet. He was discharged from the hospital today, but I definitely Freaked Out majorly. My work has all been piling up on me, and I'm also trying to help my brother's girlfriend at Tulane deal with some really shitty times right now. She's pretty sure that she chose the wrong college, and from what she's telling me, I believe her. It sounds like she has become very depressed and closed off down there and that's really not her.

Now, I know that I probably totally got myself in over my head by deciding to double major AND have a minor, but I'm only recently feeling the brunt of what I've taken on. Recently meaning the end of last semester and now. It doesn't help that I'm back to having a sexuality crisis and now having to deal with all different issues pertaining to my medications by myself. The CVS pharmacist and I are now on a first name basis.

So, to deal with all this, I've submerged myself in OOO, Bloody Monday, and my favorite manga. Now I just have to convince myself that I actually have a responsibility to complete schoolwork...
