So I went to my field placement orientation yesterday and I came back terrified and feeling completely unprepared. The other 5 interns had loads of previous experience and I was the rookie who spent most of the time furiously writing down orgs & techniques to research later. I like the actual place that I’m interning at, though. It’s a sort of alternative high school for TAY who are looking for a free alternative to the GED (the local adult school charges $200) and they emphasize critical race theory in all of their courses. At least I have a few years of experience working in schools, albeit in elementary schools, so I’m familiar with the school politics between teaching and non-teaching staff. Agh, I’m so excited but at the same time worried about messing up and like holy crap guys I’ll be learning therapy skills this year. Now I just have to prepare myself for school, internship, and hopefully a part-time job somewhere. I still have like a month, though, since my school is on a quarter system.
The picture above is of a tomato plant I thought I had killed. I think they’re yellow pear tomatoes.
If whats happening in Ferguson was happening to an all white community, it would be called a dystopian novel
#and all actions against the police would be heroic and daring#and the plucky white protags would be encouraged to use violence to stop the injustice
