sara's annual update

howdy all, aka the 4 people who still read this...
Nothing totally new or exciting to report, I'm just super pumped to start my last year of grad school! This year my internship is in an alternative high school for kids with behavior or emotional problems who couldn't handle the mainstream high school. So I'll actually be doing one-on-one therapy with my own clients and leading group therapy every week, I'm so excited! I just hope I don't screw up their lives too much. So that's what I'll be doing monday wednesday friday, and then tuesday thursday I have class. I'm also still working at the Warming House Youth Center one or two nights a week (a drop-in center for teenagers to hang out or talk confidentially about stuff). So like waple, I'm on the verge of becoming pretty busy, although less busy than I was last year 'cause I'm not a graduate assistant at school anymore. I'm definitely looking forward to graduating in may so I can finally move out of my parents' house!
This summer's been super fun, I was taking two summer school classes and working like 15 hours a week, and just chilling the rest of the time. Lollapalooza was definitely a highlight, DaftPunk rocked my socks. I also started taking dance classes again after a 2 year hiatus, which has done wonders for my self esteem and confidence, it's nice to have a hobby again and feel like I have a life and talents outside of school and social work. I've been doing ballet, hiphop, pole dancing, and I'm about to start belly dancing. I finally got a new phone yesterday so I can make and receive phone calls again! (the old one was dropping calls every 2 minutes). Ummm I can't think of anything else exciting right now. I look forward to seeing everyone sometime in the future!

I'm glad to hear things are going well. It was nice seeing you at Lolla, twice!

By the way, the storms didn't flood you, did they? I heard things got hit hard over there...

OMG that hurricane was AWFUL! My whole neighborhood was without power for 3 days! Some flooding in the streets, and tons of trees down, taking power lines with them. But everything's fine now, power's back, and no major damage.

Let me know when your first pole dance performance is. I'll be there with my mustache to make it just that much more creepy.
