Submitted all my shit to do this M.Ed. in Counseling and Human Development 3 years ago today! How young, naive, idealistic, and hopeful this newly separated and soon-to-be-divorced Jon was! Thinking I would do a Ph.D. in any field little long counseling! I was young, dumb, and full of.....well, I’m sure most will know the colloquialism!
Tomorrow, I take the CPCE, and then I have two weekends of class, 5 weeks of internship, and then I can finally say that I’m done with this M.Ed.! I can wash my hands of it and move on with life and from my silly pipe dreams of having a Ph.D. someday little long a career in counseling!
I’ll be fortunate if I can find a job in counseling, which isn’t looking so good so far and is highly unlikely, but if not then I’ll have a piece of paper that’s more expensive than my B.S. from a Bible College and is just useless too!
Earning very expensive pieces of paper is the Millennial way of life; it is our condemnation and punishment for being the most lazy, most educated, most ungrateful generation in American history!
Why did I do this degree and spend all this loan money?!?! I loath the fact that I did this and wasted my opportunities, time, money, and future! I’ll be paying my undergrad and graduate school loans off until I die, and I’m most likely not to find work in either field that my degrees are in!
I wish I had my 20s to do over professionally, academically, and, above all else, personally! I regret every major decision I’ve made in my life thus far, which isn’t a good place to land when you’re 30 and about to graduate with a M.Ed. in Counseling... #counseling#counselor#counsel#therapist#mastersofeducation#MEd#licensedprofessionalcounselor#aca#lindseywilsoncollege#lwc#gradschool#cpce#cpcexam#licensedprofessionalcounselor#lpc#mentalhealthcounselor#mhsp#millennials#gradstudents
