To get your own obamicon go to

"Whether it's new friends or new loves or new employers, what are five things people should know about you?"

1. I'm a counselor, Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, but I'm an introvert. Somehow it never comes into play at work. I'm able to listen intently and take it all in, to 'talk the angry people down'-I'm a senior counselor in my office so I often, like several times a week, see the angry and dissatisfied clients of the counselors in my unit. But when I get home, I'm exhausted.

2. I'm from Ohio, so though I've lived in NYC well over half of my life-1972- people keep saying "where are you from?" (Yes, they use bad grammar.)
