Putting the word out there...

My job is going to be ending the beginning of July & jobs are very difficult to find. I've been scouring CL & various other job sites. Now is the time to put it out there to friends & family:

Know of anyone hiring? For anything? I have a lot of experience in a lot of different fields; of course I would like to resume in the mental health field but right now I just need something as I am dealing with a bunch of financial issues that came out of nowhere all at once & they will eat me alive if I do not have something set up soon.

Thanks all. And keep fingers crossed that one of the many places that has my resume will call me.

Well shit

We got the announcement...
Due to budget cuts, they are elimenating the hotel case management services in the hotels...
This means come June 30th I am out of a job...
At least they gave us some notice but I an still very nervous & concerned considering how shitty the job market is right now & how many people are out of work...
Baker places is going to try to place everyone in other positions but considering I have the least senority that might not happen for me...
I also really don't want to have to go back to being a residential counselor...
I will keep my chin up, I will keep having faith that all this means is bigger & better things in my life...
I will try to think of it as a different path or changing direction...
But fuck...
It is just really hard to keep telling myself these things right now...

I am in need of the good juju

Please to be sending good thoughts my way around 10am tomorrow morning. We received a message at work that the CEO wants to see the entire hotel case management team at our central office to discuss something with us.
The CEO never meets with us, so something serious is going on.
I am just hoping this is not a situation of the budget cuts cutting my job out of the picture.
So...
Good juju...
10am...
Thank you...

Thank you all for all of your support & comments. It means a lot to me.

For those of you who asked for a list of what was taken:

G4 Powerbook 15inch
Fluevog lover knee high boots
Playstation 2

Those are the only things that are replacable, the rest was either money or just had sentimental value & cannot be replaced.

If anyone sees any deals on any of these items please let me know.

Thanks to those who also offered places to stay. I thankfully have a friend who has offered to crash on my couch. I've also put locks on all the windows & changed the locks.

I still feel very nervous & violated & scared but I guess that will fade with time.

Thank you all again for the support.

Not the best day in the world. I feel very frightened, vulnerable & violated.

I got a frantic call from my housemate at 4pm saying that we'd been robbed. I left work, got home as fast as possible to find our house torn apart. The couch had been ripped apart, my playstation & laptop were gone, Tygre's room was destroyed & some of her jewelry was gone, my room obviously had been riffled through. & my Fluevog boots & giant jar of change was gone.

No signs of forced entry but, hell, I remember breaking into my own house with no signs of forced entry when I was a teen, with only a credit card or a knife. Something definately seems off about this though since it seems like they just left some things & went for others.

I don't know, nor do I particularly care, my shit is gone & is going to cost a lot of money to replace & I am now scared in my own home. I don't have the serial number on my computer since I bought it used & I'm guessing I can kiss my boots goodbye. The cops were called & they came & took a report but while they talked a lot, it pretty much came down to "sucks to be you". And, yes, this entire situation sucks. I bought locks for the windows & had the keys changed, but I am still nervous.

Ugh, I'm ready for this night to be over, I wish I could just wake up & find out this was a really bad dream.

Dear Lazyweb, I need to amuse crack smokers

We have to have groups here at work for the Clients.

Approximately 6 groups a month.

Some groups are regular that I have to do, such as a women's group or art therapy, others can be almost anything as long as I can justify it to be theraputic in some way.

While I am not necessarily running out of group ideas I am curious about other peoples ideas & topics.

So here we go lazyweb, I need some group ideas that might be fun for an adult crack smoking population.

And no, hunt the rock is not an acceptable group.

That time once again

Once again I am in the need of a new housemate. Rebecca will be moving out in the beginning of March to be closer to school.

The room will be available mid March though possibly earlier if needed. The house is located in Emeryville, more specifically 54th & Adeline. Rent is a measly $415 a month & utilities are pretty cheap.

If you are looking for a place or know of anyone looking please let me know & we can figure out a time for you to come & check it out.

Cheers all!
