I think I'm right at that peak place in my education where I just want out. I want to be done I want to be working and not constantly worry about all these assignments. I know that working will have its share of, well, work, but it's different. I've worked before and I know the pressures, but I also know I can leave them out of my house. With school, you just can't do that. It's with you all the time. I write my papers here, I study here, I plan here. I have 2 semesters after this and then I'm done my BSW. However, I still won't be done just yet.
Right after I graduate, I plan on applying for my MSW. I'm in the swing of things (even though I want it to be over) and I feel that if I go to work, I might not take the break to ever complete my MSW and I know that's something I have to do. I also don't think I could do my MSW while working. I may be decently intelligent, but I have very little discipline. I think I'd procrastinate and do very poorly. If I'm going to do the MSW, I have to have my focus on that and that alone.
So yeah, it's almost over, but it's really not almost over. It's like I'll be looking at a different chapter. Hopefully that will be refreshing for me and I don't have to simply sludge through rather than finish with passion.
I plan on writing about my MSW application experiences when I start applying in the fall.
