Officially a Social Worker!

According to Social Work Boards across the country, you aren't technically allowed to call yourself a social worker if you aren't licensed. Even if you have a degree.  Or two.  Or three.  You have to be licensed to drop the SW+er term.

Well... today I am officially a social worker! I sat for my license test this morning and passed. Yes, to those of you who know me, I don't often not pass tests, but I didn't really do much preparing.  My old job paid the registration fee before I left, and I had to take the test by March 16, 2010 or I lost the fee.  Yep, I took it today. On March 16.  What is happening to me??

170 questions and about 90 minutes later, I was done!  Some questions were ridiculously hard and probably had no answer. Other questions I hope they use for screening purposes to weed out testers who could cause some serious damage to people depending on their answers.

The other highlight of my day was a Junior League Provisional Meeting tonight, which always makes me happy.  I really like all my Junior League friends!

Hope Daylight Savings Time is treating you better than it's treating me... I'm exhausted! I woke up today in the dark for the first time in a long time (teachers and other people who get up early, feel free to leave hate in the comments).  XOXO until next time!


  1. This is so great! What an accomplishment. I wish you'd post some of the questions (both kinds) to which you referred. I'm curious.

    Also, this Junior League thing... In my mind the Junior League is the cheerleaders after they graduate and get married and put out a cookbook with lots of recipes containing meringues. Obviously it's different now (or you wouldn't be in it) but what do they do????

  2. I knew from the beginning that you would pass that test with flying colors! So excited for you, my fellow social worker! : )
    Now if only I could convince you to come back to your previous employer for a summer job! not that you aren't busy enough...

  3. FU - that's actually sort of what it still is, but with a modern twist. Now, almost all of the members work and they do a bunch of community service work. There is still a cookbook, but no meringue recipes!

  4. I love your blog because you mentioned your mother twice!!!


I love reading your comments - thanks for being a wonderful part of my blogging experience!
