What were your goals?
What are your goals now?
We're you not able to find a job?
My goal was to become a clinical psychologist (Ph.D level). There is only one clinical psychology doctorate program in Houston and it happens to be where I got my undergrad from. Theyre not very accepting of their own, and it's an extremely competitive program. So, since I wanted to stay in the area, I decided to get my masters in clinical psychology first (diff school) and then worry about the Ph.d program after those 2 yrs
I'm eligible to take a test to become a licensed counselor, but I planned on getting into a Ph.d program within a 1.5 hr drive range. It didnt happen yet (due to my procrastination and other things). Also I avoided that license cause it requires an 18 mth internship (most of the time YOU have to pay your supervisor..crazy) and I was interested in working with more severe mental illness, not doing counseling
For the past 2 yrs I was working part time in a psychologist office.. but finally the other week I got a full time job working with ppl with whats considered serious mental illness. The messed up part is if I had went and took the test, I could be getting paid a lottttt more at the same job
Current goal, still get my Ph.d..damn that was long lol
Are you thinking about doing it??
