One Step Closer

So, I finished up my internship at Ranch View Middle School last week. I really enjoyed my time there. I was suprised by how much fun I had with the middle school kiddos! I met some amazing people, and am extremely grateful to everyone I worked with there.

Finishing at Ranch View means...starting somewhere new! I was supposed to do my high school internship at Rock Canyon High School in Highlands Ranch, but that fell through at the last minute. Luckily, I was able to arrange for an internship at:This is Denver East High School. I had my first day there today. It is a VERY different environment that what I am used to in Highlands Ranch! However, I think this will be a great learning experience for me. It will make me get out of my comfort zone a little bit, and I will get some wonderful counseling experience that should make me more marketable in the future. I am really excited about this internship. This school is huge (2100 students). That's the same size HR was when I was in school, but East definitely feels bigger. It's a beautiful building - it was modeled after Independence Hall in Philadelphia.

Starting a new internship means...only 15 weeks of internship left, and 16 weeks total until I am finished with my Master's Degree. I am starting to get some "senioritis" and am ready to be finished! Just keep swimming, just keep swimming... Hopefully I'll be able to get a counseling job and Kevin and I will be able to buy a house!

Some sad news kitty, Sammy, who I have had since I was 13 had to be put to sleep today. She was almost 15 years old and apparently her health got really bad this weekend. I'm very sad about this. She was such a sweet cat. At least she is in a better place now, and she let us know when it was her time to go.
