|The first flower of 2011!|
Yesterday I was, thankfully, feeling well enough to interview for internships for my counseling program, and I think I have a good shot at the perfect gig to start in July! That is a huge relief; I've been plugging away at this masters program (marital/family therapy) for almost two and a half years and as I started researching internships I discovered that they are nonexistent in my area and difficult to secure even in the major cities here (100 to 150 miles away). I did, however, take advice from one of my professors to bombard my preferred sites with phone calls and faxes of my credentials, and finally got a few calls back, including one from a clinical director who was very interested in my previous graduate work in cultural anthropology. I really enjoyed our meeting and think they're doing great work, and I would be totally thrilled to learn and work there.
So today I can breathe a bit about being able to actually finish my degree program; and my Internet is back up thanks to a new modem, I feel well enough to sit up at the computer, and it's sunny and warm outside. Oh, and the Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal starts tomorrow -- I can't wait! I've missed blogging this week and reading your blogs, and look forward to catching up. Have a great weekend!
