Phone calls, texts & emails, Oh my!

All ways in which people have communicated their near-death-due-to-curiosity experiences. It wasn't intentional, my withholding the details of my potential employement. Rather, as it's not yet confirmed (remember that drug screen? (Passed) & background check? (Won't hear til mid-next week)), I figured I'd throw out the deets then. But to prevent any deaths on my conscience...

The job: working at a residential treatment facility with youth/adolescents as a dormitory counselor. The position would be a great opportunity for me to get hands-on experience working with clients with a spectrum of issues, ranging from autism to schizophrenia. I was able to observe and participate for several hours this past Saturday and will be excited if this opportunity works out.

(Note: More specifics than this I am not comfortable sharing with the World Wide Web, but feel free to ask me more in our next convo. At orientation four weeks ago we were reminded of the small world that is the inter-web, and encouraged to be private and professional in all online communications that may in some way be traced to us. Although my blog has never been a place for revealing diatribes, I want to be sure that what I do put out there doesn't come back to haunt me at some point and is ultimately respectful of those I'm working with. Besides, who knows what that background check will reveal! Anyone know what they discover and how they go about discovering it besides the obvious criminal record & credit reports?)

Thank you for the interest, curiosity, congrats & encouragement, though! Always nice to be reminded that people care about what's going on in my life.
