yiiipppeeee!!


my life is finally complete!!
this week i am feeling like this:


yippee-skippy!


wahoo!


hooray!


weeeee!


yaaayyy!



why?
because you are now looking at,...
...oh, wait,
...here you go:


you are now looking at the new weekend therapist for a beautiful residential facility serving individuals with eating disorders.  i am over the moon with excitement!  part of my schedule includes working saturdays from 3:30-11:30p, which isn't the ideal situation, but i totally don't care!  i have waited so long for an internship, have wanted a position at this location so badly, and am so interested in working with this population that i am happy to work whatever schedule they have for me.  besides, i always knew that a night/weekend schedule was likely working in a health profession {all my friends who are doctors and nurses have welcomed me into the "crazy schedule" club}.  and the best part?  it's PAID!! yes i landed the elusive paid internship at a clinic which has amazing continuing educational opportunities, room for growth, and is close to home.  i get to drive up into a super cute small town in the hills just above LA... and i pass by a target, h&m, and whole foods along the way.  yup, perfect in every way!

 i feel truly honored that of all the applicants they chose me, and i'm so thankful for all of your well-wishes, crossed fingers and toes, and positive vibes during my interview last week {and over the course of all these months while i've been searching}.

those of you who have been dear friends and readers for the past year know how truly exciting this is for me, and what a very long, agonizing amount of time i have waited.  but it's finally here. everything is awesome and i can happily move on with my life.

aaaahhh...

  36. This is what happens when I go away for a week... I miss out on crazy, fantastic, exciting and AWESOME news like this!!! Congratulations, Kim! I am thrilled for you.

    My cousin, who lived in San Jose, passed away a few years ago after a long and difficult struggle with anorexia. It was heartbreaking to watch her waste away. I wish she'd had someone like you to help her. If she had, she might still be here today...
