I think I think I might....

go back to school...

As you all know I already have my MPA (Public Administration May 06)

BUT

I either want to get a Masters in Counseling/Psychology OR a Master in Social Work...

with all that is going on in my life that deals with Mental health...I really think I want to learn about it...further more, I just want to get another degree...

I have constantly said that I wanted a JD or a PhD...my Daddy just asked me about a month ago when I was going back to school for my JD (he's always thought that I should be a lawyer)

maybe I'll get a PhD in Psychology with a focus on the Urban Community, specifically African-American community...

(I don't know what my thesis would say but it will deal with psychological issues that face the Urban Community or the fact that mental health has such misnomers in an Urban Environment i.e., black folks don't go to therapy...when in FACT a lot of us would be better off if we did...)

I really think that by the fall I will be enrolled somewhere...I don't know where, but somewhere...

I think I think I just might...

UPDATE:

Ok so its official, I have gone on-line and found two programs that I really like, one is at Catholic University in DC and the other is at University of Maryland, Baltimore...the program at UMB is a better one for me because it focuses on Social Action and Community Development...

Which is SO right up my alley with my job, what I do with Kiamsha and just what i want to do in general in life...I want to really be able to give my professional services to kids...and I totally want to understand mental health better...

I just think that this degree really FITS, especially with my MPA...

I am totally getting excited about this...

I can go into Administration with this...so many things...you know...in the school system, non-profit, urban development...plenty of things...

So I have requested information from UMB and am looking into requesting information from Catholic
