Well I'm still hoping for the best in 2010. I haven't been accepted to any graduate program. I've received some rejection letters and havent heard anything from three programs. I want this like you wouldn't believe. I want to be successful, I want to set an example for my children, I want to have a career. But none of these programs care, they dont know me. My GPA is not as high as it should be but I poured my heart out on my statement of purpose and I have 6 graduate credits that proves I can do the work. I just want to chance to go out there and change lives and I know I can. But let's see where it takes me..
I hope to get accepted to a MSW program or a Mental Health Counseling program, I want to work with adolescents in a school setting and in the future open my own practice. I have plans people and why can't an admissions comittee see that?
I dont want to give up, Im not going to give up. When I think this year my going to be 26, I feel time is running out. If I get accepted for Fall I can work on my school work and prepare to have my children when I'm about 28 which I think it's the perfect time. By that time I can have my masters or almost be done, I'll have my house. That'll happen in my little perfect world but things seem to hold me back but one day I'll get there.
I'm Denise, from NYC, a newlywed as of Nov 2008. I graduated from Hunter College in 2007 with a BA in Psychology. I'm working at a utility company as a sales rep which has nothing to do with my career goals but in this economy you have to take it where ever you can get it. It's not bad paying but just an extremely boring. But as soon as I can, I'm a graduate student on my way to a MSW (Master's in Social Work).
About my personality, I'm a really genuine person but I don't like to deal with drama or negativity. I'm 100% real and honest.
My issue, everyone's not 100% perfect. So what's my issue? My weight and what gets to me is that sometimes it's a bigger issue for the people around me (except my husband) than it is for me. You see I was born is 11 pounds so I've been over weight since day 1. So ALL my life I've been hearing how much I should lose weight. How much prettier I would be. How much more I would enjoy life. I've grown up with this complex that it would be impossible to be happy while having this weight.
But now look married, college grad and I'm pretty happy with me. How? lol I'm just being simply me. For more info visit: simplydenisi(dot)com
