Okay, I'm not sure if this really fits into the psych forum section, but it does relate specifically to issues with jobs in field... Feel free to move it as need be. I just found out that I'm not going to have personal internet access (including access to personal email) for a few months. I have a good friend who's doing her internship at a college counseling center and whose birthday is in August. Because we've always communicated via email, I don't have her home address in InternshipCity, and the nature of her internship means she's often AWOL from email for weeks at a time, so there's a good chance that I won't be able to get her address from her before I am sans internet. Seeing as I still want to acknowledge her birthday (hell, she took time to acknowledge mine while on vacation with her in-laws, so it would only be fair ), I considered sending her a brief letter ("hey, I did remember your birthday--I'm just without email," etc.) care of her internship site. But then I considered that a lot of psych jobs may not allow employees to receive personal mail at work due to concerns about past unstable clients trying to contact, etc. Is there any "usual standard" for this in the field? Am I just overthinking this?
