Master’s Degree

Thanks Timehop for reminding me that I graduated with my Master’s Degree three years ago today.

Sometimes it feels like 10 years.  Some days it even feels like 100 years.

Some days I wonder how I graduated and wonder if I just graduated yesterday.

I do love what I do even if sometimes it’s hard and challenging and emotionally taxing.  Like now.  When I’m dealing with a lot of upset girls over the death of a parent of one of our students.  He had cancer, so it’s not a shock, but it’s still very upsetting.  There are some days I run for the door at 3:15 just because it’s either been a long day or an emotionally challenging one.  There are some days I’m still here until 4:30 just talking to other faculty members and losing track of time.

But, at the end of the day, I love what I do.  I’m so glad I pursued a degree in this.  I’m happy I get to work in a school where I’m valued and not just “for scheduling” or “college visits”.  Yes, I do college visits, but I’m also involved in the students emotional and mental needs and always consulted before alternatives are considered for a student in a special circumstance.  It’s not often a high school counselor gets that.

Three years later; I’d do it all over again.

In thirty years? I don’t know.  Ask me in 27 years.
