The start of something new..

The start of something new..


     Welcome to my blog.  My name is Paula and just recently I had finished my Master's degree on counseling with an emphasis of school counseling.  For the pass few years I have been a full time student, as well as a stay at home mom.  The past year I was doing my internship in two very different Elementary Schools.  One being high in responsive services and the other being very guidance curriculum oriented.  It was a very bitter sweet ending, I was happy classes and internship was over but I was also sad that well... It was over.  It has come to my attention that my life would now have to change.  So I have started this blog in high hopes that other women have experienced this situation of having a routine and now have to change it.  

I want to go back to work; I also want to stay at home with my children.  It is like that song "Torn between two lovers..." But no lovers.  I have talked to my husband about it and it seems that he has gotten use to stay at home mom lifestyle.  He has been supportive which is a wonderful feeling.  So I have decided that after all the studying that has taken place in my life, I will take a little break from stressing about going to back to work and enjoy summer vacation.  

I really want to take the time and treat this blog like a journal of my life, hopefully I gain some tips and tricks on how to keep an 8 and 3 year old entertained.  This blog would also help me at 4am when sleep is not my friend.  

Thanks for reading!

Questions for my soul...

Has anyone ever been in this situation?

Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive faster?

But that is exactly what parents of privilege are doing this summer.“What?” you ask. “Parents are paying to have their children work at a company?” Oh, yes they are and it’s not just because the Great Recession continues unabated.   Read more >

Before Getting Married, It Helps to Spend More Time With Married Couples

My husband and I have been married for over eleven years and this one assignment has stuck with us all this time.  Our pastor in pre-marital counseling assigned us to meet with over ten married couples.  Our pastor had specific couples in mind with specific stories for them to tell us about.  He also encouraged us to spend time with married couples, either on a couples’ date, dinner at their houses, or some fun activity so we could observe, ask questions and learn from their life stories.   Read more >

Obama Admin: Why We Shouldn't Regulate Internships

Imagine that you're graduating from college soon. With unemployment at 10 percent, do you have a chance of getting a job when competing with experienced workers? What are your options? For many recent college graduates, they take internships. It's not ideal, but it often gives new workers experience and puts their foot in the door when openings do come up. That option may not exist much longer.   Read more >
