wow – think you are awesome! if I was ten years younger and living in the same country I would hope to meet you. re the psychology choice avoid -corporate life like the plague. I’ve recently been reading about positive psychology – finding and encouraging people to use their strengths – great stuff. All the best with your future choices :)

Haha, man hip hurray for randomness. I live in Copenhagen, Denmark, but was born in California. I googled “Warheads”, cause a friend of mine mentioned them in a status on Facebook. And that search randomly directed me to your blogg, cause you have a picture of them on your page:P
To be even more random I then clicked on your “where-I’ve-lived”-map, and I suddenly noticed that it said “Arcadia California Mission”, and I realized that it probably meant that you were a Mormon too! :)
Keep bloggin’!

Thanks for the comment Maryann! I guess I should update my “About Me” section. I stopped working at SPA last October. But I will say that it was overall a good experience. I learned a lot while I was there. I worked primarily as a residential child care worker (ie. getting them up for school, enforcing rules, modeling good behavior, that sort of stuff) and it sounds like you’d be interested in more of a counseling position. I know they usually have openings in the residential care side but I can’t speak to whether or not there are any other kind of openings. But I’ll say that if you enjoy working with foster kids, SPA takes a unique approach and there’s so much good that can be done. Good luck with the job hunt!

Peter, where did you obtain the photo showing the twin boys,
one normal and one with Achondroplasia? I’d like to contact
the photographer to use the image.
