The following picture sums up my life:

1. I hate planning a wedding.

2. I have a SUPER COOL job!!!

This sign is actually on the doors leading to the psych ward at one of the hospitals I visited today. (Apparently, most hospitals have a psych ward--lots of mentally unbalanced people in this world)

I miraculously (<--yes miraculously, but that's a whole nother story) got a job as a case manager at a community behavioral health service provider. So far it's really boring (because I'm not trained yet) but sometimes I get to shadow my co-workers when they do in-home visits or go to the hospital. This week I got to witness people yelling, staring at the wall, talking to themselves, hearing voices, everything. It was pretty cool to actually see real-world examples of the the symptoms & diagnoses I studied in school. Sooo cool.
