Monday I was listening to aaron on the radio and the main dj did a segment about the National Children's Advocacy Center and talked on the radio with the main lady about the abuse rate and stuff in Alabama and it was just an ungodly number. Listening to that got me thinking. For a while now I've been wanting to do something with my life that will help people. I have been a victim of abuse [emotional, physical, mental] and because of that I started having panic attacks about 3 years ago and made regular trips to therapy, though I'm doing better now and haven't been to therapy since December. ANYWAY while listening to that radio segment I had an epiphany of sorts. I heard the number of women and children abused in Alabama and I thought "This is what I need to do". So I've decided to change my major to Sociology and hopefully do social work or work with a place like the National Children's Advocacy Center. Being abused isn't fun in anyway and if I can have a part in stopping it or at least making the situation more bearable to deal with then awesome. |
ALSO...I'm totally not giving up music because it helps me maintain an acceptable level of sanity. I got to looking at the course requirements for a music minor at UAH and I'm only 4 (well really 3 courses because I lump theory and theory lab into one) courses away from having a minor in music. AWESOME STUFF.
Speaking of people that are assholes....even though i wasn't really talking about assholes. Guess what my old boss did? He actually CALLED AEROPOSTALE and told them they made a mistake in hiring me and that they would regret it. WHAT A DICKWAD.
