I’m a fully certified hypnotherapist!

Back in December, I graduated from HMI having completed 300 clock hours of course work. I previously posted the courses I took.

The next step was getting certified, I opted to only use the best and most strict certification. If you know me, you know that is exactly what I would do. It also happened that it was connected to the school which helped of course. Still 200 hours is a LOT of hours and there were times that I did not think I was ever going to finish.

However if there is one thing that I’ve learned from my hypnotherapist, it is to be resourceful. Always be resourceful. You have internal resources and there are external resources. Find one of them or more.

So as I was on Facebook, this one VERY annoying advertisement kept stalking me. I mean every single time I was on Facebook these two people (one asking for a haircut) kept popping up. Finally I said to myself, “Fine, I give up! Maybe I can get an hour or two of my clinical hours done.”

That site was Simbi and that helped me get another 80 hours, either directly or indirectly. I joined Simbi in Feb, end of March I turned in my paperwork. In exchange for hypnotherapy, I ended up getting so much of the things for the director’s award completed and my private practice launched! It was great. And yes as of today, I was notified that I do in fact get my director’s award from my school. Not only that but since I have always wanted to try to make hypnotherapy affordable to everyone, I now (via Simbi) can help get it to people who cannot afford it and I don’t have to set up my own system. Simbi can handle it instead. All I have to do is say it’s X points off Simbi and hand a card to tell them how to get on.

If I had a use “alt currency” on my bucket list, I would have gotten that crossed off.

Have you ever used alt currency or run on a barter service? How did you do it? Wanna check Simbi out?

Augusta film festival

And yet we did the Augusta Jewish Film Festival again for another year. This time I don’t think I saw as many movies as the first year, but I also don’t remember watching anything particularly good.  I am starting to think that some of these film festivals only seem to get the worst films.  Certainly I was not overly impressed.  I would do anything to have some decent films for once!

Would you ever willingly go back to a selection committee with questionable standards?

Selection Committee

This is a different selection committee, but yet again a film based one. I served on Southern Circuit’s film committee although I will say I did not find it nearly as good as the selection of films we have at the Jewish film festival. The quality was not there and it almost seemed that for several of them that they were not even trying to make a decent movie. Unlike the AJFF, Southern Circuit assigned the movies to the reviewers and gave us a much shorter amount of time to do our reviews. I had 4 movies and a week to do them in. That is a little bit much. I only saw one that was worth anything and I didn’t even think that was the best movie in the world. I expect when I see a movie, that people know their audience and know what the heck they are doing and are not trying to be overly cute. I was definitely not impressed by what I saw.

These guys by the way give the best swag.

Did anyone else see any movies worth while?

Apply to be on a reality show

Anyone who knows me knows I absolutely LOVED watching Queer Eye for the straight guy so imagine my surprise when a casting director contacted me as they were looking for a recently transitioned ftm who might need some help. I already had applied for a reality show so this was another one, a better one.

Unfortunately they were mostly looking for Atlanta area, but the casting director became incredibly excited because I have such a unique story given I am also a hypnotherapist who is about to open their own practice. How many times does that come up? I had a lot of fun doing the interview and since I already knew a little bit about the television industry and what people look for, I was able to give them the best information that I could to help make their life easier. I had a lot of fun doing the interview although getting everything together to make their life easier was a big pain in the butt. I didn’t get chosen because I was a little out of their driving range. I was so bummed. I had already envisioned all of the wonderful things I was going to learn and how wonderful they were going to make my house and how great it would be for the practice but it was not to be because of the distance.

Apply to be on a Reality TV Show

This is one of those “Replacement Things to do” which replaces “Throw a House Party When your Parents are Out” as by the time I got the book, I had not lived with my parents in many years. Since I never was left alone, there is no way I could have done that so I replaced it with something which is a different level of reckless… “Apply to be on a reality TV show.”

Most of those shows just aren’t that interesting although I enjoyed watching Mad Mad House and would have loved to be on that. My partner however says because I am so open about the weird stuff that went on in that house (the only alt that I was squicked over was the Primitive with all the body modifications), I would not have been picked because they want people who were going to be uncomfortable with everyone.

I also really liked Ghost Hunters Academy which I would have also been very comfortable with, but they wouldn’t have liked me because I am “sensitive.”

So I have been looking on Reality Wanted for something that I can apply to.  As I just restarted college and I love to travel, I applied to something via All3Media on college kids that want to study abroad and travel  I do not think I have the ability to get in but it is something that looks like it could be fun! So far I haven’t heard back but I will let you know if I do!

Would you be wiling to apply to a reality TV show for any reason?
