Practicum. It's kicking my butt. And I love it and hate all at once. It truly is a training process. I find myself being tested daily. It's miserable and wonderful and everything between. My strengths are overshadowed by my weaknesses and nearly every shift presents a new failure of some sort. I'm being shaped and grown, whether I like it or not. And whether I like it or not, I know this is good for me.
