Well, today was the last of my CPE seminars. I still have final evaluations and four weeks more of chaplaincy, but I will no longer have to do the extra educational work alongside the clinical work.
I felt a strong sense of relief, and now I just feel really tired. I'm going to call a Fool and then go up to pray with a young man in the burn unit and then head to bed.
I have learned so much through this program. I am now a laser-guided pastoral ninja. But I am also very, emphatically done.
