Why hello there :) The Psychology Department is having a search for a Department Head. The first candidate (of three) that we are interviewing was a Clinical Psychologist. Well- the Clinical Program would love for this candidate to be our new Department Head- so the red carpet was rolled out ;) This morning was the candidates job talk. Now, before I continue I would like to say that usually job talks are very, very boring. And with the short attention span that I have- I quickly zone out. This job talk, however, captivated my attention. I truly, enjoyed it! I think that not only will be he be the Department Head but also a new Clinical Faculty- which would be awesome. He studies Tourette's and Trichotillomania. The first of which- has a large child component/emphasis. I really would love if our program gets another child focused clinician! And his research line- from basic science to treatment program implementation is very interesting. I think he would be a good fit for our program and department.
I then, can happily say- that I was productive! I knocked out some major report writing- which has been a monkey on my back for some time. It was such a relief. I now have a few hours to spend with my Ninja face before seeing some clients :) I could do days like this more often!
Oh! I have to share one bad news, good news story. I am not sure if I have ever shared- but i am a clean freak! I cannot stand messes and I am a bit compulsive about it! Well- last night, after cooking and baking, I got it into my head that our apartment was a bit messy. I started cleaning frantically- dusting, lysol wiping, mopping, etc. I finally went to go vaccuum and it broke :( I could not stand that half of my carpet was not vaccummed. My wonderful hubby- late night- went and bought me a matching vaccuum to my steam cleaner. And I have to tell you that I am a huge fan of the Bissell pro-pet series (vaccuum and steam cleaner)- they do an amazing job :)
On that good note- lets move on to delicious cookies! My brother in-law is a fan of almond joys and cookies....so there you go....
