I just finished editing my last paper and just have a couple exams to complete and then I'm done all my classes of my degree. That's scary to write! This might possibly be the last of my schooling (other than practicum...I'll get to that later) for a while! Seeing all of my classmates yesterday was fun, but kind of sad. I've also been saying my goodbyes to instructors and my library job. I won't be able to do it next semester as my practicum will take up too much of my time.
As for my practicum, I went for my interview and was happy enough with the placement. It is in a community mental health organization for adults. I was hoping for more acute care experience than they can offer, but I have my feelers out for opportunities with that. This organization has many different programs that I will be able to check out, and then give one or two of them my full attention the deeper into the semester I get. The ones that are standing out right now are the short term assessment team, and the concurrent disorders program.
It's good to have the practicum sorted out, as well as having completed all of my coursework, so I can focus my attention this December on lazing about, reading and playing video games.
