About Psychologist Mimi

I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and “exotic”), ingest caffeine, drink cocktails (the sweeter and more basil in it the better), and watch political news coverage. I’m a big pop culture junkie who isn’t afraid to say she loves “In Touch” Magazine! I like to find and explore the unique and the weird, including ghosts, goblins and ghouls. These need not just be travel locations but can pertain to the workplace and my Puerto Rican childhood  as well.

I am a social marketing expert  (or so I have been told by the powers that be) and a PhD social psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all and thus, I make everyone call me Dr.  Just kidding!  I don’t care much for those type of people (including obnoxious academics).  My life in the non-profit field is ripe for analysis and blog write-ups.  Thus, I often touch upon the wackiness of the workplace, my childhood superstitions and folktales as well as pop culture.

I am a New Yorker, who has lived throughout the United States and abroad,  but my New Yorker wit (AKA snark; bite) and sensibilities always stay with me.

I appreciate the blogging world’s community circle and strive to answer every comment and like; as well as visiting the blog of every follower.

All the world is my television and life is a highway and I like to provide commentary on it. Cheers

  1. I love your blog for three little reasons:

    a. my kitten’s name is Mimi and she is cute as hell
    b. I am a clinical social worker by training and thoroughly enjoy your angle on the world
    3. as a born and bred Brooklynite, I give props to New Yorkers that deserve it.

  2. Hello Dr Just kidding,

    I wonder how you haven’t been pharmakosed by all the phonies at the workplace. This is obviously not your place. You’re carnivalesque, you’re a fool ( in the Shakespearean sense). Did you have to drink at the well of phoniness to survive?
    Just kidding,

    Happy Heuristics ( I’m also a Mimi)

  3. Thank you, Psychologistmimi, for having me in mind for ‘The Premio Dardos Award’. I truly do appreciate your support, and I am glad that others are enjoying your work just as much as I continue to.

    Culture does tend to ooze off from our writing, doesn’t it? 😉

    Write on, friend.

  4. From one (future) psychologist to another; it’s great to meet you! :0) I’m currently still working on my B.S. in psych (distance ed. of 4 & 1/2 years), but will be transferring over to brick and mortar in a year to begin working on my Master’s to PhD in Clinical. You’re the first person I’ve met in bloggie-land who’s actually a psychologist. Nice. 🙂 I followed Lucky Wreck’s (Amy’s) cookie (and beer) crumb trail here; If she recommended you, you must be damn funny. She’s a riot…heheh. Anywho, I’m Birgitta. Glad I was able to find you. x

  5. Hi psychologistmimi – Thanks for popping by my blog at schoolteachersuperhero.com . I’ve worked with so many school psychologists as a special educator. And I too have many stories to tell from the world of non-profit public education. I have an upcoming post (this Tues.) sharing one of those stories. I hope you can pop back by to read it. I think you might be able to relate 🙂

  6. Interesting! Btw as the great Hank Moody would say, I might steal that: “All the world is my television” is a very interesting expression 🙂 If you want, share my posts with your friends that follow the NBA. I’ve been following it for such a long time it kind of became embedded in me 🙂 Anyway, have a good day, inspire and be inspiring! Carpe diem!

  10. Interesting that you have a Puerto Rican background in Florida I train ( in dressage with my horse) with a person of PR descent. My background in English and both of us give credence to ghosts or other things that are not always visible to the eye. He credits his PR Grandmother.
