So It Is Possible!

To kick start my return, let me first apologize for any rustiness with regards to my writing. It has been a while since I've written for fun as most of the things I've written and typed out were patient evaluation reports, session notes and therapy plans. This past year has been majorly hectic as I went through my last year in college. I went through a grueling 10 months of clinical internship that has contributed significantly to the therapist and person that I am today.

Cue applause

Yes, yes. I have been through a lot this past year, even managing to scratch a couple of things off my bucket list, both the one I have mentally drafted in my mind and the one posted here on my blog. To start off, I am officially a college graduate! *Insert various graduation pictures here* This means, I managed to survive four years at one of the main universities in my country. That in itself is no easy feat, let me tell you, that! But I managed to do it, and I am eternally happy and grateful for being able to do so. A lot of people and experiences have contributed to that awesome moment when it had finally sunk in that I was done with college and all that stuff. It's a pretty amazing feeling. Could definitely be right up on there alongside "pooping", "eliminating that itch" and "catching my crush looking at me" on my "feel-good list".

So what do I do from here? I definitely have a lot of plans, but for now, I managed to snag a job (surprising how they'd take a weirdo like me in, right?) at a local therapy center where I will start doing what I've been trained for - speech therapy!

"Okay kid. Let's talk."

I've a lot of other plans, but those shall be reserved for future posts. For now, I really need to get my shizz in order. I have plenty of pending adult-stuff to work on. Clearance papers and government affairs and whatnot. Who knew being an adult would be this hard? And all along I thought all they did was sit in front of a computer all day at their offices in their fancy ties and high heels sending chain mails, chatting around the water cooler and drinking coffee, all the while getting paid and then getting the stuff they want. 

"WOOHOO! I am adult now?"

Turns out, the real world isn't that easy. You actually have to do something called "work", which is such a foreign thing to me that I darn near collapsed at the thought of it. However, that's just the way it is. Although I do admit I miss the student life where everything was mapped out for you and the biggest issues you would face included where on earth you last placed your homework (Protip: you'll never find it, 'cause you never did it. But don't worry, I'm sure your intellectually-gifted seatmate is willing to "compare answers" with you) and what after school places you could hang out at with your friends, the adult life is actually pretty cool in itself. I mean, you get paid for what you're doing (even if it is work) so that's definitely a plus! Additionally, you get a lot more freedom to make your own decisions and stuff. 

"So will I go for the yellow, the yellow green, the yellow-ish, or the more-green-than-yellow? Gawd. Decisions, decisions!"

Of course, this opens up a whole lot more issues as well. But that's okay. Life is all about experiencing stuff, making mistakes and hitting jackpots once in a while. The important thing is that you continue growing and learning. 

This just in: realized that I'm starting to sound like a legitimate adult now. That's like, totally awesomesauce and cooli-o, dude!

I just wanted a great big banner with fireworks and confetti, fancy champagne and those little cheese and hotdogs on sticks to announce my return to the blogging world after more than a year of being away. But sadly, all I could come up with was that spazzy expression up top.

But anyway, the important thing is, I'm back. And I'm sure all you lovely people have missed me so very very much.
Admit it, people. Y'all can't resist me.

Kidding aside though, I have definitely missed all of you and your blogs! I definitely have a lot of catching up to do, and a lot of news to tell. A lot has happened in the past year, and I mean a lot! I can't wait to expose all the blahs, the blues and the blarghs I've experienced since my last post (which has incidentally also contributed to my return. I do not want my blog's last post to be of a successful dog tick removal method, for crying out loud).
