Finished grad school in May for MSW and now work at an outpatient mental health clinic. I thrive in the chaos and excitement of my field and simply love the work that I do.
A friend recently suggested that my spirit animal must be an otter since I'm "friendly, relaxed, and playful." I normally don't rely on animal comparisons to describe myself, but I find it mitigates the awkwardness of OKC self-advertising?
When I'm not being an otter or social worker, I spend my time running/gyming, hate-watching the Knicks, rediscovering the world of pleasure-reading, and justifying frequent happy hours and long weekend nights with friends under the guise of self-care.
