After a marvelous winter break, it’s time to head back to school tomorrow. I can’t wait to see everyone, but one more week would have been nice! I’m a little nervous about going into this semester because I’m now working two part time jobs–Bean Trader’s Coffee Shop and the School of Social Work. It’s nice to be working behind the coffee counter again and coming home reeking of coffee. I also now have a great place to get my coffee. I’m going to be living off the stuff this semester. I’m also working on my law school application so I can do the MSW/JD dual degree program.
My husband, Dave, decided on a New Years resolution for me. We’re going to start swimming twice a week before school. He’s a swim coach and is ready for me to start understanding when he talks about work. I’ve swam twice so far, and I love it! It’s healthy food and exercise for me this year! Self-care is constantly talked about in Social Work. If you can’t care for yourself, you won’t be an effective as a social worker. I think this is going to be a great way to take my mind off of all things school related and do something for myself. The difficult part will be getting up at 5:30 to get to practice. With this mixture of coffee and swimming I’m hoping for a great semester!
