Being a novice blogger and an avid computer junkie made a good combination because I was determined to figure out how to make it interesting enough for others to want to read. Since this is the introduction you will just get to know a little bit about me and what I think, so you can understand the posts I type in the future. I promise they will be more interesting as time goes on.
Welcome to my house- feel free to take off your shoes, kick your feet up and open your mind. Since you have graced me with your presence it’s only polite I introduce myself before we go along this journey together.
I am Erica Grier, a 24 year old junior at U of D. I do not have any children and since I was laid off I have plenty of free time (when I am not studying). I commute to campus Tuesday’s-Thursday’s this semester from my apartment that’s right outside the city. In my spare time I enjoy shopping (yet I have no money), being a Facebook Junkie, nature, texting and reading. People describe me as funny, flirty, sweet, crazy, honest, loyal, smart, hard-working etc. You get the point. I’m a nice girl. I am addicted to technology. My cell phone and digital camera are always with me. The laptop is never too far behind; it’s just too big to fit in my purse.
My major is Social Work so I will definitely give you every element of the experience I possibly can. As part of my work study commitment I am a teacher’s assistant at the Catholic School across from U of D. Hopefully, I will be able to start up this after school tutoring program for my babies- I call them that because I love them like my own. I am currently also in the process of trying to volunteer at a juvenile delinquent facility. As part of the service learning requirement for many of the classes I will also be briefly working with the homeless and working with senior citizens. There is so much to do and so little time. I LOVE WHAT I PLAN TO DO IN THE FUTURE!
Previously, I was also listed as majoring in criminal justice, psychology and human services. A few reasons I considered changing my major were:
Criminal Justice- I changed my major before I even enrolled in classes.
Psychology- Science is not one of my best subjects and it requires a substantial amount of scientific knowledge.
Human Services-Human Services is a good field, but Social Work and Human Services are practically the same fields-EXCEPT a Social Worker is licensed and qualified to do more and handle more responsibility. More responsibility means you have the opportunity to get better positions and more money!
**One of the best pieces of advice I can give to anyone in/near this field of study is to READ material other than textbooks in your spare time. Self-reflection leads to growth and development, which will only make you better at what you do**
Now that you know a little bit about me I hope that you come back often and read the posts. If you have any questions or comments feel free to post them or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
