Major Update!

Hello All,
     Sorry it has been so long since I've updated. I've thought about it for awhile but kept putting it off. So here's what's been happening...

      September 23rd, I graduated with my associates degree in Criminal Justice (CJ). I ended up receiving the National Honor Society for my class. I didn't even have honors, I was .02 away from a 3.5 GPA. I NEVER even thought about getting National Honor Society (NHS) as I never receive things like that. When they called my name it took me a split second to realize they were actually calling my name. My parents, 13yr old brother Jon and Grandma P came out from Wisconsin to see me graduate. I also had all my aunts and uncles and Grandma S who to see me graduate. It was nice to see everyone again. My parents gave me a stainless steel pot and pan set for my graduation gift.

      September 27th I had an interview for a possible job. I got the job and now work as a transport officer. We transport mentally ill, inmates, juveniles, and dementia patients. I love the work but its hard because I am oncall 24/7. This makes it hard because I work all different hours of the day and I don't get a consistent amount of hours which makes things hard on my wallet too.

      Those are the main updates for now. I've mainly been working and thats about it.

      Love & Peace

  1. I know what it is like to love a job, but have needs that make it necessary to have to move on. I thought I would give you a couple of suggestions. First, be sure and talk to your boss and tell them of your financial needs and see if there are other tasks you could do to pick up a few extra hours. Tell them, as you have told us, how much you really enjoy the job. If that doesn't work, another thing you can do is to bring resumes with you when you transport and turn them into the locations where you drop off and pick up your clients. Also, when you give your resume, ask if they know of any other organizations where you may be a good fit. Something will turn up. Persistence and patience are the keys. Good luck and happy hunting!
