As of today, I've contributed 25 hours towards my summer internship. Although I'm not even close to being finished, I feel like I've learned a lot.
Until this week, I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with my degree--or if my degree would even be useful to me in the future. I'm a pretty indecisive person. I've been at University for three years, and have changed my major five times. Awesome, right? Well, this week everything clicked. I love working with the elderly--and (gasp) I'm actually good at it! With this in mind, I want to pursue Geriatric Social Work.
This week, I've worked in the memory care facility at an assisted care center. Everyone in this facility is struggling with some form of Dementia, and need a lot of special attention. I've grown to love each of my residents, individually--even though they usually don't remember me from day to day.
I love my new job.
