In non-Taiwan related news… I’m completely registered for my first semester of grad school classes at Washington University in St. Louis! Besides a brief freak out as I watched the classes I wanted fill up and the internet service at the Home go down, registration was a smooth process.
I’ll be taking Social Work Practice with Individuals & Families, Research Methods, Social Justice & Human Diversity, Human Behavior, and Social Welfare Policies & Services.
And my schedule is just as I wanted it! I’ll have class from 9 am to 3 pm on Monday and Tuesday, and from 9 am to 12 pm on Wednesday. Here come Wednesday afternoons, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays of studying, exploring St. Louis, road-tripping to Kansas City, visiting home, and getting involved in my church’s goings on.
I’ll start looking for my first field work placement/internship as soon as school gets rolling at the very end of August. On my mind for possibilities: an international adoption agency, an autism treatment center, and an elementary school.
Similar to the way I stand in awe of the easy path the Lord paved for me to come to Taiwan, I am in awe of the path to social work grad school. It’s going to be a great two years.
