So... since I haven't been posting in forever, and no one probably reads my journal anymore, here's what you need to know since I last posted anything with content:

  • I moved in with my girlfriend. We have a dog, a cat, and are planning on getting married or eloping sooner rather than later.
  • I got a job working in a prison as a substance abuse counselor. I had a crazy boss, and worked with a lot of black girls. I met a lot of interesting, talented, clients. I was there for 14 months.
  • I left that job for a lot of reasons. One of them being crazy boss.
  • I'm currently working at a community mental health clinic that services a lot of poor and disabled folk. I know a lot about foodstamps, SSI, TCA, and the clustercuss that is our disability system now.

I say all that to say this: I'm gonna be writing about work sometimes from now on. No names. No faces. The work stuff is mostly to keep me from burning out. That said, here goes.

Work stuff )

The religious right always talks about the Gay Agenda (TM). I always hear this and think "You know, I want one of those." Though with the way my life has been recently, it would be disgustingly mundane.

My Gay Agenda(TM)
  1. Try not to kill the visual people at corporate because there's supposedly a visual update coming through tonight and they want it done before opening tomorrow. Nevermind the store closes in 3 hours, and they've yet to send it to us.
  2. Get out of retail. This will be easier when I get a job in my field. I'm working on that. :\
  3. Get Married. Screw you state governments.
  4. Eat dinner. I'm so hungry.
  5. Get the LJ RP game going with the Girl that we've been sort of kind of talking about. ZOMG ROBOTS!
  6. Finish chapter 2 of Not Quite Paradise
  7. Help The Girl Move at the End of the Month.

Yeah, that's My Gay Agenda (TM). Doesn't it sound exciting? I'm sure I can figure out more later. XD

Test: Get.
License: Get.
Interview: Get!

Yeah, I have an interview at Baltimore Behavioral Health this Friday at noon. I am equal parts Squee and freaking out at this prospect. And not quite sure what to where but I have a suit so that's an option. I knew that Gregory Edgeworth cosplay would come in handy for something.

So maybe the next step after this is Job: Get?

Wish me luck guys. I'll need it. >.>

This must be said.


Passing score was a 99 out of 160.

I? Got 124. Out of 160.

No, I do not apologize for the huge, pretentious sparkle text. Deal with it. XD

So as many of you know, I want to be a counselor.

I finally scheduled my test date.

July 6, 2009. 1:30 PM.

June just plum wasn't available. (Considering June starts in 2 days this was not surprising. I was just surprised someone answered the phone today)

*fingers crossed*

Pray (or hope if you're not into that praying stuff) for me guys. I'm gonna need it.
