ABA Therapy

Are you an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapist?
If so, could you tell me about your experiences? How long have you been in this career field? What's it like? Do you enjoy what you do? What ages do you mostly work with? What introduced you to this type of therapy? etc. Also, if you don't mind, how much do you make in a year (and the state/country you live in)?

If you're not an ABA therapist... have you ever met one? Do you know much about ABA therapy?

To everyone else where these questions might not necessarily apply to them..

what is a recent interest of yours? (hobbies, movies, tv series, music, and whatever else)

Get off the stage!

Who are some of your favorite lead singers when it comes to live stage presence?

I'm looking more for people in bands rather than solo artists who perform with accompanying musicians no one cares about....Also links to video would be appreciated :)

Last year I decided to spend the summer focusing on a specific group of books, in an attempt to make a dent on my "to be read" list. It worked pretty well, so I decided to do it again this year, but I'm undecided on what genre I should focus on.

So, TQC will you help me decide?

This poll is closed.

What Genre Should I Read This Summer?

Science Fiction

24hrs later: Well, that was somewhat helpful. *flips coin* SF it is. Thanks!

Do you belong to a book club? Why/why not?

Let's pretend that you all do! If you were reading a book for book club and found yourself really hating it/not able to get into it, would you finish it? Why/why not?

Okay, so you're not in a book club. Do you finish the book your currently reading and hating? Why/why not?

Inspired by me reading a book for my book club and I wound up not being able to get into it until well passed 100 pages and really hating the ending. Truth is, if this wasn't for book club, I would not have ever finished it. And I felt slightly bitter about it!

I hear that Stephen Colbert is going to step aside from his Colbert Show character when he replaces David Letterman as host of The Late Show.

Does this mean he's going to start pronouncing his last name as coal-burt again?


I have a dilemma...

I'm a library science grad student set to graduate in May. I never anticipated that I'd be hired quickly- but the interviews have started rolling in and places seem excited to see me (a library in my home county got my interview today and called me an hour later to set up an interview)- so now I'm realizing I might actually be hired within months of graduation.

This is beyond exciting, except for one thing. I've volunteered with an organization for the last seven years and they run a camp every summer (girls state, if you know it). I've counseled for many moons but I was recently promoted to a much bigger deal administrative position. I'd need to be there from June 19-28, but what are the odds a new job will let me do this? Do you think there's any hope? I'd hate to let the group down (I'd be very hard to replace) and it's also the highlight of my year. Any advice on how to handle this?

DK/DC- Will you tell me stories from your first job post-grad?

Some of my colleagues think that I'm involved with another (about to be married) colleague. There is nothing between us and I have no interest of there being anything.

Have you ever been in a similar situation? What did you do?

would you buy a second pair of ugly shoes?

I have a hard time buying shoes; my feet are difficult to fit, and they hurt. I have very few pairs of shoes for this reason.

I ordered a pair of shoes from Zappos because I had a feeling they would fit. I did it even though they are ugly granny loafers because I really needed new shoes I can wear to the office. And they do fit! I wouldn't want to walk more than a mile in them, but for the office they're fine. And hideous.

I still need more shoes, mostly to wear with pants to the office. Normally, finding a pair of shoes IRL is pretty impossible and finding them on Zappos is a multi-step process involving many orders and returns (all the other shoes I bought with these had to be returned). Should I order another pair of these ugly shoes because they fit?
