Honestly, this is the most burnt out I’ve felt in a while. I’ve noticed I’m unbelievably tired, my body aches, and muscles have been tense. I’m very aware, it is a season of grief and loss….and with that growth and renewal.
This week I was honored to be interviewed by an undergraduate student who is taking a class from one of my favorite Chatham University professors, Dr. Deborah Rubin (man I miss Pittsburgh!). What was awesome is that I really needed to sit down and write about why I became a social worker. I used to push myself to do this at my last job at The Prevention Researcher, whose audience is primarily youth social work types.
I’ve LOVED school, absolutely loved learning and relearning and just soaking in the information. What I haven’t loved about school is that I haven’t been a very good friend, my social life has suffered, and as I sit here one month away from my last final at the University of Southern California my list of what I still want to learn has grown threefold. And then there’s the question of, what’s my next role, where do I fit in the world, and how to I refuel before my next endeavor?
Here’s more than you might have time to read, a snip-it from the interview with Hannah. And Happy Social Worth Month -burnt out or not :)!
P.s. I apologize for the lack of photo in the photoblog today.
