I’ve had two years of grad school to consider how to announce this news and what follows gives you a small idea of how my brain works and how easily amused I am, especially while on sabbatical. I do apologize.
@MFTStudent is evolving!
*evolution music and animation*
Congratulations! Your @MFTStudent
evolved into @RebekahMFTI!”
The Prisoner style:
Intern: Who are you?
Two: The new Number Two.
Intern: Who is Number One?
Two: You are Number 75650.
Intern: I am not a number; I am a free woman!
Doctor Who style:
“Hullo! I’m the Intern.”
Phineas & Ferb style:
*Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated theme*
*An agent crashes into Doof’s lair*
Dr. D: “An MFT Intern?!”
*Agent rolls her eyes, pulls out a notepad, and looks thoughtful*
Dr. D: “REBEKAH the MFT Intern?!”
Yes, it’s true. After two years of tough schoolwork, graduation, fingerprints, paperwork, waiting for transcripts to arrive, and waiting, I received word about three weeks ago that the California Board of Behavioral Sciences finished processing my paperwork and deemed me worthy of registration as a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern! Another milestone on the road to licensure reached and it’s time I changed my Twitter handle since I’m really no longer a student.
I’m also in the process of searching for an internship where I can continue earning supervised hours towards licensure, hence my relative silence on the Internet. Hopefully I’ll have some great news before too long!
So what do you think, dear reader? Somewhere in Mind has a new look (header and blavatar), and it’s all thanks to Rich Chester, AKA @captain_doodle!
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ve probably already seen me mention this and seen variations on the new artwork through those channels, but I thought it right to post a permanent acknowledgement here, too.
In every young blog’s life, there comes a time when you have to stop fiddling with settings and About pages and actually produce content… or admit that you’re squatting on the URL, just like all the people who registered your initial great ideas for blog names, then never posted for years.
I didn’t set out to squat, of course. I can lay blame (or at least excuses) on grad school, on family matters, on various kinds of work, on plain old tiredness, even on waiting for the artwork I commissioned for this online presence (it is, by the way, very exciting to be part of that development).
Let’s stop excusing me and get Somewhere. So, hi! Welcome! I won’t bore you with a lot of details about me just now; that’s what the About pages are for.
I want to mention instead what you can expect to see here going forward:
- Hypnotherapy and other psychology topics
- Grad school observations
- Words, words, words (or “you keep using that phrase; I do not think it means what you think it means“. …Have I mentioned my BA is English?)
- Reviews – hypnotherapy programs, etc.
- Geekery – Doctor Who, gaming, etc.
- LGBTQ-related topics
- Whatever else amuses/fascinates me at the moment, but trying to keep to the general themes above
I’m planning (“hoping” might be a better word) to post at least weekly on Saturdays, so please stop by again! And for my shorter rambling the other days of the week, there’s always Twitter and Facebook.
