Happy Easter!

I wrote a post about Passover, and now here’s a post about Easter… well actually Easter eggs… and yes, this was sorta/kinda inspired by a tweet by Behavior Guy, which leads to this (either someone from the game development team really liked ABA… or not). Anyway, for those who have no ideas what an Easter egg is… it is like a hidden message/secret code/inside joke. Some of the examples I can think of is in the Iron Man 1, Captain America’s shield is on Tony Stark’s workbench and Thor’s hammer in the end of Iron Man 2. These days you just have to sit through the entire movie (plus credits) or you will regret

Well, before I started to pursue the BCBA certification, I struggled mightily with my Master’s degree… I wasn’t sure which direction I was going… It took me a long time (6 years), a new location (moving to another state), and a new profession (becoming a stay-at-home dad, a topic which I would like to write about). I eventually finished my thesis with lots of help and I did 2 little stinky things to honor my professors and my family. Just don’t tell the grad adviser. Shhh…

We all have heard the definition of insanity is “repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different result” (wanna give proper credit but I am not sure if it’s by Ben Franklin or Einstein). In our field, we design and implement plans for behavior change. In my case, I repeatedly did the same thing for over a year (or two) thinking I would get done but I didn’t do anything progressive. I felt stuck/trapped/whatever word you could use… eventually I realized that a change, a drastic change, was needed. And viola! Here I am working toward my BCBA.

Yes, we can do it. Thanks and Happy Easter!

May the ham be with you!
