I've been a lazy fuck so I haven't updated this in a while. Wheeeeeeeeee!!

The basics: I am still alive, still in Tucson, still out of grad school and still working at a group home.  I am doing ok for the most part, getting used to life outside of the ivory tower. 2 jobs, 3 relationships, still one very busy fucker.

I'm working on figuring out what I want to do and how to go from where I currently stand.  I've decided I'd like to pursue a career in behavioral health as either a family service specialist or a case manager.  I have an interview this week for an opening in the former, so here's hoping!

Work would be ok if the working conditions didn't suck so hard.  Overworked, understaffed, underpaid and unappreciated.  I feel like my boss has a lot of growing up to do professionally.  A LOT.  I'm not gonna get into too many details here, but basically: I am still employed here and actively looking for a job elsewhere.  Fun times.

My relationships have suffered a bit from my ridiculous schedule and overall lack of wanting to do anything other than sleep when I get back home, but even with that, I feel they are all much better than when I was in grad school.  I want to be able to give the best of me to my partners and I am working on achieving the work-life balance that will help me do that.

I haven't written anything theoretical in a while; not for lack of ideas, but because I am still resentful of grad school.  I think the wound is still too fresh to try this again just yet.

I have been playing a lot of Pokemon recently.  It's one of those things I drop for a bit but always come back to.

That's about it for now.  I will try to write something more substantial but I've been at work for like 10 hours and huh brain cells what are those.
