Today is my last day at the partial hospitalization program after three long weeks and I am ecstatic. The program was very worthwhile, don’t get me wrong, but I am happy to be moving on. I got the mental health reset that I needed and it is time to go back to work and further my education. Next week I am going to a career fair at the Philadelphia International Airport with the hopes of maybe getting hired to drive one of the courtesy shuttles for Avis Budget car rental.
Ideally, I want to work on the weekends, keeping the weekdays off for things like doctors appointments and working with the Delaware Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. I am going to be exploring career opportunities in Drug and Alcohol Counseling with my DVR counselor. I see myself working with addicts to help improve their lives. This is the long term plan at least.
If I do not get hired by Avis Budget or the terms of employment do not meet my criteria, I will look at other options. I am concerned about the driving demands of the courtesy shuttle. It’s a lot of short distance, stop and go. At least there are tons of driving jobs out there; one of which is a roving security guard position that pays quite well and I could do it because I have my Delaware Security Guard card. Going back to work, even at part-time hours, is exactly what I need to do to keep on the trend of feeling better.
Another thing I have to do is follow up to find out why I am unable to activate my new cell phone service with Cricket Wireless. I will have to do this early this afternoon when I get home from the program. When information technology systems fail it can be frustrating for both customer service and customers alike. I am hoping for some news that the glitch was fixed and I can move on.
