Why is it that just when I find myself getting into a normal routine- I have to figure out a new one! Classes change, jobs change, internships change-I am irritated. For those of you who may not know- getting this past field placement was a nightmare! It turned out great, I am at an internship I love. However, due to the delay in placing me here, I lost out on time to be placed for my SECOND year placement. I would just like to point out, this means I am getting screwed over not only once, but twice. Couldn't figure out the 2nd level till the first was done... and so therefore I end up behind and left out of placements again.....
I have many decisions to make (again) regarding school. Do I want to stay at my placement or find a new one? A new one means: Do I want to commute far into the suburbs for a good opportunity? Do I really want to scrounge up 3 letters of recommendation? Staying here may mean: I could possibly jam load my schedule a graduate a semester early. I know I like it here. HOWEVER, there is a lot of down time, I will never get my own case load, and I won't be broadening my horizons and experiencing other agencies. Part of all this seems like the choice to be comfortable. There other part of that though is how much stress do I really want to add to my life?
Ok here is the other piece of the pie that I can't get out of my head... internships often lead to jobs..... See there are just too many factors! For those of you who have a job that you are happy and content going to everyday- say a prayer of thanksgiving. For those of you who feel like there is a never ending spiral of choices and changes in front of you..... we will all figure things out someday (i hope!)
How bout a vote:
Stacy- Stay where you are and possibly graduate early?
Stacy- Stick with the plan to graduate in May 08 and suck it up and commute to an agency that will offer new opportunity and experience?
