Hard to believe that the summer is already winding down. Next month I will be starting a nine month field placement (internship) with the local Dept. of Family Services, working with at-risk families and doing some policy work. I am looking forward to the actual work, which looks challenging and also appears to be a great learning opportunity. However, I am not looking forward to the 60 hour work week I will have between the internship and my paying gig. The only course I have left is my final practice course, also a year long.
I will keep blogging as the inspiration strikes, but the well has run low of late. I may post more book reviews as I have been reading a lot lately. I saw The Dark Knight but didn’t post about it as I didn’t believe that I had anything to add that had not already been said; however, it is a great movie, no question…even if you don’t care much for superhero movies. But it ain’t for the kids.
Politics isn’t really engaging me much of late, either. I am still undecided about how I will vote, but I am leaning towards Obama out of spite for those who insist on slandering him as a Muslim, terrorist sympathizer, what-have-you. I know plenty of conservatives and moderates who won’t vote for him because they disagree with his positions; I can respect them and their reasoning whether I agree or not. However, I have no respect for those who won’t vote for a black man just because he is black, or because he has a non-Western sounding name; those who are so credulous that they believe info that they are getting through chain e-mails. Enough; grow up already.
Christine and I will be leaving for a two-week vacation on Saturday, so things will be silent here at AAT for a while. Somehow, I think that the blogosphere will survive without me. See you in mid-August.
