Busy waiting
Friday, October 7, 2011

As some of y'all are aware, I'm no longer doing the behavioral therapy gig. Long story short, I had discovered the company that employed me wasn't particularly ethical and I was ready to leave anyway. I would have preferred to leave on my own terms with another job already found so I could give them the finger on my way out, but what can ya do? I be honest, I wasn't particularly 'qualified' to do this job in the first place, they don't train on plan worth a shit, and there method's would never be APA certified. They are more concerned with billing hours and raking in the government money than actually making a difference in these children's lives. I'm too much of an idealist, I think my days there were numbered from the beginning.

So I find myself busy waiting once more. Applying for jobs, waiting, interview (possibly), waiting.... you get the picture. It's driving me crazy. I'm also teaching myself what I believe to be what I need to know to pass the GACE exam in some of the academic subjects. Finding a music teaching job still isn't easy, but I believe a math or reading certification would find me work in more public schools.

I've started filling the time with creative outlets while maintaining the job search. I'm practicing again (haven't done that seriously in a few) and am now learning how to sew. I know, it's a bit random, but I'm a fairly random guy and I enjoy acquiring new skills. Part of me wants to actually finish that fanfic I started a year ago, but I feel embarrassed every time I try to write in it. I believe I've injected a bit too much of myself into the character's personalities.

So I'm doing fine, all things considered. I'm too busy and/or distracted to do much more than a little lurking lately, but I wanted to make sure y'all knew I was alright. My last couple of post were a might negative, not really livin' up to my namesake.

Happy thoughts!

Oh hey Happy.

Yeah, I remember you mentioning that briefly on the board. It is too bad that people will try to take advantage of people who are looking for their help, but hey, you did the right and honorable thing.

I'd still like to see your fanfic, though I can understand how you might feel like you've invested too much of yourself in the characters or how it might hit a little too close to home.

I guess I'm lucky I don't have any problem like that. I understand the characters pretty well (or I'd like to think I do), but I'm not really that much like any of them.
