i'm loving this.

i just finished my first week at my internship.
woot woot! (i go there 3 days a week and to school the other 2 days.)

sunday night i was a nervous & scared, and now i am just all sorts of excited. i have a fabulous field placement this year working in a residential treatment center for boys 13-17 dealing with drug abuse. i get experience in individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy. i already have three clients, so they really just throw us right in. it is fascinating and i have learned so much already (drugs 101, anyone?). the people i work with are incredible and just so helpful and nice. i can't believe i lucked out with such an awesome placement, especially when i hear the horror stories of a few of my classmates. i am pretty busy, but i LOVE it. i feel clueless, but i still LOVE it. i will be learning so much in the next 8 months.
