And so it begins

Over the last week or so, I have been applying and talking and talking and talking and hoping and talking for a different job in the agency. One of our Runaway Youth Services counselors was activated (Navy reserves), so we needed to fill her position temporarily.

They extended it to me this morning! Since I've had plenty of time to think about it, I accepted it. There were issues, the Executive Director bluntly stated that he didn't want me to have it, I don't have my Bachelor's yet, and I'm scheduled for the next few weeks in the phone room, but we are going to make it work.

This is the perfect opportunity to decide if I want to be a Counselor or if I will use my degree in different ways (student affairs). This is short-term, very end-oriented therapy. On the continuum between what I do now and full-blown counseling, it's near the middle. This will also let me know if I want to continue to pursue the extra classes for the School Counselor cert. If I hate this, it will save me a lot of time and headache. I don't plan on hating it, though.

Deanna may be back anywhere from three months to three years, until then, I'm glad I could be here for the agency.

I want my friends to come home. I miss them. I spoke with curlycutie the other day, but I need me some lovins from my friends!
