On the Edge of the World!!

Today, I am feeling quite discouraged. I am feeling discouraged about my grad applications. I am feeling that maybe I should have applied to more places as I have not heard from any schools. I still have the opportunity to apply to UofM. I feel discouraged. I feel discouraged about my internship. Currently, I am not really enjoying myself or the work I am doing. I am wondering if I have spent four years in a major that I am not called for? I love doing many social work things and have spent a lot of time in different field settings, so I feel like Social work is a good fit for me, yet I still feel discouraged... Maybe it's the weather or maybe it's the uncertainity of life that makes me discouraged, stress and anxious. My sister has been sick lately, so that makes me discouraged. My dad is hating his job, which makes me more discouraged. I am discouraged about the future. When you see the walls crumbling it is easy to have a discouraging day...

Well, now that I wrote a nice depressing entry lets get to something good...
Here is another Africa story..

This picture is on top of Table Mountain. I am on the edge of the cliff as you can see. My professor was looking at my pictures and he said "good thing I wasn't there, please tell your parents that because I don't want to get in trouble." Sitting on the edge of a cliff was a thrill that I cannot explain. I was very unsure of how steady the rock was and after hearing that two people had died the day before we went up made me a bit nervous, but at this point in the day I was ready to face the world. Being on Table Top Mountain made me feel like I was invincible. It was a great feeling to see the world down below. We were so high in elevation that we were on the cloud line!! The clouds were eye level with us. The highest point at the mountain is 1085 meters. It was a such a neat experience....

ok. first of all that picture is awesome. i'm such a sissy when it comes to heights.

and second. be patient with yourself. you're trying to make a lot of big decisions right now...it's bound to get a little stressful. take care of yourself.
