  1. amazing! — its strange, half the time i tell people i have a degree in psychology i’m met with admiration… and the other half — people look at me like i should be wearing a straight jacket — or like i simply decided to get a degree in psychology because it was “easy”… glad to see there are some famous people out there with psychology degrees as well… i’ll have to remember this for next time. 😉
