Therapy Tuesday

8:52 AM Edit This 13 Comments »
Internet? It's going to be great. My new job, that is. I spent most of yesterday reading policy and procedure manuals. The agency has to make me do that in order to complete an orientation for their documentation for accreditation, but it was interesting nonetheless. I love the vibe of that place. I was nervous all morning until I stepped in the door and then BAM! Instantly felt at home. I have my own office and my own desk and my own couches and comfy chairs to sit and listen to people in. And well? It's all very exciting. And the first time I signed my name with the letters behind it? HOLY BEAMING FROM MY FACE! I don't quite know what they will be doing with me today, but like I told my co-worker, "They've trained a lot of counselors in this agency. They obviously know what they're doing." New Life, indeed! The hardest task yesterday was writing my own blurb "introduction" thing for the website. I passed on stating that I have an obsession with the Plague. I said I loved gardening instead.
 
In other news, I saw Carolyn for the last time this morning. Not that I can't ever see her again, but I'm no longer "in therapy." Can you believe it? Internet! Can you believe it?! That's crazy talk! But I know I'm ready and I know that I know how to manage life today. And I didn't even cry. That's how ready I was to be done.
 
Also, Minnesota Farmer asked me out. We met online, we talked once on the phone and it was several hours worth of laughter. So, I'm going to call this a good thing and go have fun. I have no idea when yet, but at least he asked. Right?

Fantastic! And although I agree with your decision to leave it out of your profile, I think it's cool that you're obsessed with the plague.
