Post College

6.22.16

and we're back.
in order for me to be a bit more serious about blogging.
I'm switching back to capitalization and complete sentences.
for the last semester and the most part of Post College, i uncapitalized not out of laziness
i uncapitalized for an artistic purpose
to challenge the social construction of grammar and writing.
to copy the people of color poets who write in this fashion
anywho.

My housemate asked me today, how's post grad for me right now?
It's an interesting question because we live together and I would think he would have an idea.
However, I really apprecaited the check in question.
It's been a series of ups and downs because I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing.
At my current job, I don't do much, but play and hangout with kids.
However, it does mean a lot to the kids who do live there.
I work as a Youth Enrichment Coordinator.
At the same time, I'm an intern at a new Non Profit in Berkeley.
The Nonprofit focuses on stabilizing refugees and easing PTSD for them.
It's been a lot of fun for me to make their brochure.
It's been very challenging as well.
While my resume and cover letter got me in, my experience is not the greatest.
However, that's why I'm in this internship.
To get experience.
To push myself more.
Even if it's just volunteering.
It helps that I have something to do.

At the same time,
I've enrolled at CCSF in order to take a 1 unit class on Community Mental Health.
It's a class that focuses on how a community will approach mental health.
I'm excited to go back to schoo even though it's going to only be two days for a course.
It's strange that I'm already going back to class.
However, going back to class is the way I have to do it if I want to do Art Therapy or go to Grad School.
I have to get experience.
i have to volunteer before I can get to where I want to be.
