Everytime I start writing an entry I get a bit discouraged and abandon it but, dammit, I would like to keep this ship afloat. Perhaps its indicative of something not-so-great that I need to start each entry with "I want to update my livejournal more often". Lately I've been hand-writing lots of letters which is kind of like journaling. I get to write out my day-to-day adventures and mail them off to friends who get a nice surprise in their mailbox and hopefully a smile.
My last update was a little less than a year ago when I had just finished my summer semester. Now I've finished all my graduate school coursework. I've still got a year-long (unpaid, yikes) internship ahead of me and a concurrent twice-a-month online course. Then I'll have an MSW, how crazy is that? My brother will be obtaining a bachelor's degree at the same time and my mother will probably be retiring. So, basically, huge party next May.
Trying to keep busy, trying to keep positive. Trying to not let things that are out of my control affect my mood so much. But you know how those things go. Yesterday and today have been pretty good. I'm going to go down to Clinton Lake Beach in a bit here to meet up with a friend then hopefully roll back into town in time for the re-instated weekly potluck.
