The BEST Feeling I've Had all Week

12:25 AM

While this may not sound like a major accomplishment, I think I know what I want to do after I graduate from college.  I want to get my masters in social work.  I would absolutely love to help children in some way, and I think that working in a school would be the best fit for me.  I also know that I want to go to school in Illinois so I can be closer to my family.  I understand that this won't always be possible, but for now it is.  My family will live in Illinois for a few more years, and Illinois has some of the best schools for social work.  I would absolutely love to go to the University of Chicago.  I just requested additional information about the school, and I plan on visiting when I am home over spring break.  As cheesy as it sounds, I do honestly believe that this is my calling.  Once I got this idea in my head, I felt an overwhelming sensation of relaxation and excitement.  They sound strange together, but I promise it is the best feeling.  Now I just need to work hard to make sure I can accomplish my goals.  Please keep me in your thoughts for like a year.  Summer 2014 is when I will be applying to graduate programs, and I just pray that I will be able to go to a great school so I can accomplish my dreams.  I'll apply around this time next year, and hopefully know what I will be doing with my future in a little over a year.
