Just got word that I’ve been accepted into an Occupational Therapy Assistant program at the local college for the Fall. Three months ago when I quit my job I’d had no success at obtaining employment that was even quasi-professional and that kind of thing breaks you down.

I can’t drive more than a mile without seeing a Now Hiring! sign which, honestly, feels surreal and a bit creepy. Since the U.S Recession (2007-2009) I’ve spent a great deal of time hunting for work and I’ve never seen anything like this. I’d like to jump for joy in how well the economy is […]
