Hello everyone! I hope everyone has enjoyed their April and has been taking the time needed to prioritize their well-being as much as possible. With May finally here along with warmer weather, my intentions for this blog post is to raise awareness for the role warmer weather plays on our mental health, especially for those of us who may be in college, studying, and or just have obligations in their lives that require a lot of energy to the point that sometimes we begin to lose our balance.
As a graduate student finally being able to obtain an internship after not having to do this in almost 3 years, I found myself reflecting on this new experience. Currently obtaining a graduate degree in school counseling, it has been a hassle trying to grab an internship placement, especially with COVID restrictions and post COVID protocols in place that are much stricter. But today, I am happily writing to you from a space of gratitude after my first day shadowing a school counselor! I thought to myself, “this month’s topic should be about internships–what they are, the benefits, and important things to remember”.
