New Job and Thanksgiving

I started my new job about 3 weeks ago. I got a job at a non-profit Mental Health Clinic in Dallas. I'm working as a case manager in the clinic. Our clinic sees low income individuals with diagnoses of bipolar, depression, and schizophrenia. It is definitely an intense population to work with but also very interesting. I think it will be a good fit for now and give me a lot of experience working with a wide variety of people. The clinic is very fast paced so time will probably fly by most of the time.

I stayed in Dallas for Thanksgiving this year and truly experienced a Bradley Thanksgiving. Dan and about 20 of his relatives all got together at his uncle's "ranch". We played football, rode 4-wheelers, some people rode the horse, played games, watched football, and all hung out and ate lots of food. It was definitely a different experience from my typical more formal Thanksgiving experience, but it was a lot of fun!
