|03:37 pm - I challenge you to a game of procrastination!|
I'm at uni at the moment. In the library, crunching loudly on rice crackers while everyone is trying to study. It's not completely silent so it's not too awkward. I've procrastinated most of the day away, although I've written out a few of my lectures, I'm yet to commit them to memory completely. I'll get to it after this post and I go get some more water.
Yesterday was a hat trick in terms of awesomeness. I got a call back about a job I applied for at a Rehab centre run by the Salvation Army. I got the job, which I thought I would as I felt I did well in the interveiw. I go in Monday morning to sort stuff out. Then I got my role play feedback back from my counselling skills 1 course and I got a high distinction (80%). One of the top marks in the class worth 50% of our overall mark. We have the exam on Thursday so I should sort my shit out and get on with the study! Then finally I got another assignment back and got a semi-average mark but gretel and I went for a run which makes up the rest of that crap mark to get a hat trick day of awesomeness.
I'm so glad I got another job. Holidays are on their way and I get very apathetic/bored if I don't have stuff to do... Although I really REALLY need to vacum the house. It's disgusting. The job title is night supervisor at the Bridge centre. Shifts are 5pm - 11pm and 11pm - 7am. Which isn't too bad. Job involves breath testing and urine testing, handling crisis calls from the clients and brief intervention. Clients are 18 - 75 but most are between 24 - 48. I really like the set up of the program, which has been successfully run for years now, and can't wait to get my experience bar up before I go to Japan... I felt pretty grr arg the past week or so. I just wanna get up and out of here. This new job should give me something to focus on other than leaving though.
On another side note. I did something to my knee and the chiro strapped it up with material tape. Awesome. I got the BIGGEST, reddest, rawest, ITCHIEST rash from it ever. So just incase you're with me when I have an accident and I'm knocked unconcious please let the medics know I'm horribly allergic to material bandaids.
Tax times soon! I hope I get money back or don't have to pay any more!

Congratulations on the job!
Shame about the arseholes who own the service, but I gather the actual programmes are pretty good. I'm sure it'll be full-on, but I hope it's rewarding as well.
Yeah unfortunately the guys at the top are usually the problem but on ground level everyone is pretty cruisy and the programs are run really well.
I tried working at centacare (catholic run organisation) and that was pretty hard. Didn't last long.
Congrats on the new job, it sounds amazing.
I'm really allergic to tape too, it sucks because my shoulder needs taping but there's no option for me because I'm allergic to all adhesives.
