I've been fighting trying to decide what to write on here for the past day. Should I tell the story about wearing a bandanna in a counseling session that cracks me up, or should I announce that I got a job? Obviously one of those is more exciting to tell, but I'm feeling...underwhelmed by it. I don't know if I'm burnt out, or maybe just am not sure about the job and what I'll be doing, or if really...I don't know. I just don't want to go through everything changing again. So, I guess I'll tell both.
The other day I was sitting in a counseling session and I felt something around on my neck. I touched it and suddenly wasn't sure what I was wearing...did I have on a turtleneck? Surely not, since it was in the 80's that day. I tugged at it and off come a teddy bear bandanna that I had put on the hour before in play therapy. My clients busted out laughing at my look of horror. I asked "HOW have you taken me seriously for the last hour with this on?!" And maybe to my horror, the lady answered "I don't know, it sort of matched so I thought maybe...." So now I'm the kind of person that might seriously wear a teddy bear bandanna with black pants and a red top. No, really...you never know.
And, just to make the official announcement...I accepted a job today. One down side though is that I still won't have a normal schedule, I may have to work a weekend day, and I hear it is really hard to get days off there. On a happier note, I also have already found my LPC/LMFT supervisor for after graduation. There are only about 10 of them (that supervise for both licenses) in Austin and one of them is now mine. That basically means instead of paying two separate supervisors $75 a week, I just pay one saying an average of $300 a month. Even if it was contributing to other procrastination, my early searchings have served me well. NOW I just need to study for and take two licensing exams and a jurisprudence exam. And write two final papers.
