Life Is Just So Daily

Kudos & Crud. my Thursday night class...I had this project due that was worth 70% of my, let me just pat myself on the back for getting a BIG FAT 198 out of 200 points!

I can't tell you how pumped I am...and therefore I'm bragging.
so what.

So, now, tomorrow by midnight I have a paper due in there on Autism.
Okay. I can swing that.
I should say...hey, I've already pretty much got an A, so what's the point?...but I'm kind of psyched that I've maintained a 4.0 average in grad school thus far (again, bragging, sorry, but I've been working my a$$ off!)

On Tuesday night @ 6pm, I have a "treatment paper" due in class about problems chosen from the family depicted in the movie Soul Food.
So, if anyone is familiar with the movie/problems from the movie, or has suggestions for my treatment plan---feel free to post in the comments section.
Guess what: my local Blockbuster does not have the movie & they called 4 other Blockbusters to get it for me. None of the stores had it. It's next in my Netflix queue, & shows that it should have arrived 4/17, but guess what: no such luck. I've seen the movie before...I just wanted to watch it again before I sit down & try to tackle this Bad Mamma-Jamma.
We'll see what I come up with.

I'm fairly certain that I'll get an A in my Thursday night class.
I'm not so sure in my Tuesday night class, so I'm pretty nervous about this Soul Food paper. This is the same class that I had to give the 3 hour presentation in...not so long ago. I will have to say---the professor gives unusual & challenging assignments. The next time I hear: "you really get your money's worth with that professor", I'm going to switch classes immediately!
[just kidding...then who would I be cheating? I'd only be cheating myself...I know.]

So, tonight...I'm at work to make up for my Thursday off.
Which...I still have to post about...and I will.
I still have to work on my Autism paper & my Soul Food paper.
I'm so ready for school to be out!!!!!!

So, those are my cruddy things & my kudos to post for today.

Congratulations for doing so well on your work!

I'm not familiar with the movie--will have to look it up.

Congrats! And, no...I have never even heard of that film.

What sort of "treatment" are you studying? Social work? Ethics? Psychology? Human Relations?

I am guessing that if you are studying autism, your graduate degree must be in psychology? If so, what facet?

Do you think I asked enough questions on this comment? :)

I'm just interested. I specialized in geriatrics and grief counseling, but I did do some work in autism.

I'm getting my Masters in SW.

And...grief counseling....hmmm...maybe you could help with my Tuesday class Term Paper. We get to write on the topic of our choosing.
I was going to do one of 2 things:
1) Take my major research project from last year about caregiver support to primary caregivers of those dx'd with early Alzheimer's & adapt it for this paper...
2) Deal with the topic of grief and those who have experienced the death of a child.
With choice #2, I'll get more out of the homework assignment for personal & professional development.
Any tips on that one???

Thankfully, I haven't experienced #2, but as you know I have contemplated the reality. We're also meeting several folks for whom that reality is most likely going to happen.

As it happens, I am an Expressive Art Therapist by training (I have an MA in it), and I had a classmate who did her master's thesis on music therapy with Alzheimer's patients.

On a lighter note, I love the Captain Kirk poster...It reminds me of these: . My favorite calendar!

I think anyone who learns about autism is great ;)

I did a lot on those topics with my degrees as well (gereatrics/ death and dying).

Congratulations! And brag away! I vaguely remember watching Soul Food but ask me to tell you what it was about and I couldn't. Shame on Me! Good Luck with your papers and congrats again!
