Well, it's Friday! That's a good thing although I don't mind the weekdays anyway. I actually enjoy going to Salvation Army everyday. It's the group of people I'm in class with. We have so much fun. We laugh and carry on all day. It's sort of like being in high school again without all the mean girls that made fun of me. ha ha
Anyway, did I tell you guys about my new homegroup? It's called Not High at Noon which is very funny because that's the name of the homegroup I was VERY involved in when I was living in Florida and that's the place where I met MiamiDon. He moved back to Ft. Lauderdale now and is doing really well and is actually working at a treatment center. So, we still talk quite a bit. I'm glad.
Anyhoo, my new meeting is everyday, but my sponsor (Hilary) said if I just attended once a week or on the weekends for now that's fine because obviously I have a lot on my plate. When Salvation Army is over, I'll obviously have more time on my hands even though I still have three counseling sessions a week or something at Choices, but I won't be there all day like now. I'll actually be able to get a job and stuff, but I'm gonna make it a point to go to that meeting every single day whenever possible.
I'm starting week 6 at Salvation Army next week and it's a 12 week program so I'm just about halfway there. There's also one other thing I'm contemplating and it's a vocational program that Salvation Army has on their campus. The good part is that you can live on campus for free and they feed you everyday and they send you to class and teach you how to get a job and build a resume and all that good stuff and then when you do get a job, they take $130 out of your check every week and put it in a money order in your name so that you have a bunch of cash to get an apartment or whatever when you leave. I mean, obviously it's just like a savings account and I could do that myself, but I never do so it would be nice to have someone else doing it for me without me having a choice.
See, I can do something like that or move back home with my parents. Because where I'm staying now is $130 a week and my parents are obviously paying for it because I have no income. The part I'm worried about is that I'm over qualified for that program. I mean, I do have an associates degree, I've had many jobs and I know how to make a resume in fact, I did my teacher's resume for him the other day and he was so thankful. It's not like it's hard.
So, I'll just get some information on it and see what happens. I'm just worried about the job search in general because I do have a felony right now. It's going to turn into a gross misdemeanor down the road when I finish everything, but right now it shows up as a felony (i think). Not even really sure.
