Well, it's happened! I finally got a regular full time job! And to think I was only out of work for 1 year and 9 months...
Granted it only pays minimum wage, but I'm thankful just to FINALLY have something. I am so sick to death of having to sit on my hands all day, and or look for work day in and day out. And of course because it's minimum wage, Keri and I still need government welfare to live. *sigh* Oh well, I'm getting back to work! I'm doing something! Just... YEEESS!!
So what am I doing? Well, that's the funny part. I applied to be a custodian at a place called Sierra Foothills academy. Well, as we interviewed (because it was a group interview, not 1 on 1) we come to find out janitorial would only be art time. It'd still take it rather than have nothing, but then the staff began asking if we were willing to expand our profession into being a Teacher's Assistant. I said sure.
It wasn't an easy choice. SFA is a school for kids with special needs... very very special needs. I won't go into too many details other than I've been pegged in the head with a few crayons and a couple folding chairs. Of course I realize these kids can't help it, and they need help learning how to communicate and how to adapt to transitioning from one activity to another. It's a very difficult learning process because obviously there are different triggers for different kids, and their brains are not functioning properly. So I'm here to help these students learn how to process their brains.
I'm currently undergoing on the job training. I have to be careful too because I'm not authorized to physically intervene do if I'm being assaulted, I can't really push back. There are professional advancement in this job too, but all in good time.
No matter, I am working, Keri is happy, I am happy. So, soon I should be getting back to my art.
