I'm a week and a half into the first summer school session now. I must say, I've been rather busy. I was always pretty busy in undergrad, especially junior and senior year, but then I graduated and got a job. It was weird when I moved here and had so much free time. At first I didn't know what to do with myself, but I quickly became accustomed to it. Even though I worked mainly from home, I still had work time and non-work time. It was pretty nice. I kind of like being busy too, to an extent. But man, it's pretty exhausting. How did I do this in undergrad? Although next session will be better. I'm taking 5 hours this month but only 1 next month. Why they divided it up like that, I don't know. Doesn't make much sense to me.

So far I'm enjoying my classes, for the most part. I'm taking Psychopathology, a Leadership/Management class, and an Evidence Based Practice/Research-ish type class. I'm enjoying the Psychopathology class much more than I expected. I'm not going into clinical social work so I didn't think I'd really like it, but it's pretty interesting. We're learning how to diagnose people with mental illnesses. Our prof told us not to diagnose our friends or they will no longer be our friends.

Haha, yeah, he told us that too - after one girl said she thought she was delusional because she thought she fit the criteria...

Don't diagnose family as we'll always be family and that can be dangerous...also, we already know we're wacky! That's why you love us so much.
