First official day of graduate school

After two weeks of orientation, on Friday May 14, 2010, I celebrated my first official day of my MSW program. I will now bring your attention to the first page of notes I have taken as a graduate student...

Drumroll please...

Looks like my note-taking skills... um... leave something to be desired.

Oh well... I'm working on it. When I moved out here three months ago, I spent a lot of time wondering if I was big enough for all the responsibilities I was given. As the only social worker in an already floundering hospice, I consistently find myself bombarded with any project that is even vaguely "social worky." It is demanding, yes, but I am learning new things every day.

Now that I have officially started graduate school, I feel the same way. Am I really "big enough" to be a graduate student? In 1.5 years, will I really be "big enough" to be an MSW? So many questions on my mind. But for now, I have to get to work writing my paper and about twenty case notes in preparation for the coming week.
