Words from the other side

Months over due... sorry for my absence... blah blah other excuses about not updating this blog more often

How you doing? Life been moving without me? Good I'm glad.

I come to you now back in the great nation of Texas (or at least this state is so pretentious it WISHES it could be it's own country again). I have moved back down after finishing my master's program in clinical social work.

In this blistering southern heat I have just been preparing for my social work licensing exam. In the United States, one cannot be a practicing social worker unless they are licensed and recognized in the state they wish to practice. So I have been doing practice question after practice question on the pocket prep app. I feel somewhat blasé about the exam, but I think that mostly steams from my hatred of all things standardized test. However, this test cost $230 to take, and I can't work without passing it, so I really can't afford to fail..... So fingers crossed for mw yall!

I have had 2 interviews in town thus far, one for a middle school and the other with a health clinic. Still waiting to hear from all the other applications I've submitted, but I'm hoping something pans out soon enough because I need funds!

But in other news, it's been weird being back in town as most of my adult life has been spent in other states while I was away in college, so now I feel somewhat disconnected from the life and people here. (Also doesn't help that I don't have a job, thus I don't wanna go out and do things that cost money :/) A vicious cycle. Though it's only been a few weeks, so I'll try to give it some time for me to acclimate to my new surroundings, the new dynamics at home (family drama deserves its whole own post...) and set a new groove for this new weird step in adulthood.

Until next time,
