Stepping into the world of Social Work

Registering for classes!

Well, I’ve come to the next step towards becoming a full fledged graduate student – I’ve registered for classes!

It took me a while to find the correct password (and I actually learned how to make Google Chrome show me passwords it has saved!) but I did it.

Admittedly, it was made a little easier by the fact that my particular courses are pretty set in stone – there really is only one section of each class I could register in. So I’ll have classes Monday and Wednesday nights, as I was expecting.

The two classes I will be taking are:

Human Behavior in the Social Environment

Environment I (3) The ecological systems 
paradigm is the lens through which theories 
of personality, family, group, organization, 
community and culture and the interaction 
among these systems are explored.

The next steps will be to PAY for all of this (including signing notes for my student loans) and buy the books.
August 15th, I have Graduate Student Orientation, where I learn more about the ins and outs of being a grad student in general, and the 16th, 18th and 20th, I have “Community Immersion.” I’m not sure what to expect of that, but it sounds interesting. I was pleased to learn that I don’t have to take that whole week off work – only Monday, Tuesday, and part of Thursday, so I should be able to work an abbreviated week, checking in with all of my clients at least an hour that week.
The bigger deal this past couple of weeks has been getting me a new car…. more on that in a future post.
