Updates, Life, etc.

I don't feel like actually being productive today, so I thought I'd write. If for some reason you've been following my personal life, you'll know things haven't been so great lately. What a surprise. But if you've known me, you'd know it was inevitable. It happens. Maybe someday it'll be fixed and better, but right now, I'm just... exhausted.

I finally started researching more grad schools. (That's the one good thing about feeling like this - I stop caring about whether or not something hurts and focus on the mechanical, where perfunctory is perfection.) I have information and application info for my top 3 schools. Which, surprisingly, haven't changed at all since back then, even if my program has altered slightly (and goes by a different name at each school). It gets clearer every year... 

But part of this search... Well, maybe you'll understand what I mean. One of my biggest frustrations with my life is that I know precisely what I want, but I have no idea how to get it. With a grad school search, it's easy. They tell me exactly what I need to do in order to get it. They give me definite, defined goals and a plan.

My top 2 choices are the MSW from Temple and a MPA (with a focus in community-clinical services) from University of New Haven (though I'm wary about living in Connecticut). I have my heart set on Philly still, but I'm trying to keep other options open... 

Keyword this week is options. There are always other options. Sometimes they're just hard to see.
