Fubar, it is the one site that I am able to voice whatever I choose. I do not fear any negative consequences as I do not have any clients or business associates on here, to my knowledge anyways. I like that. Hell, I love that.
In observation I have noticed that I am more sensitve than I used to be. I am feeling more impassioned about things but am frustrated that my interest, my passions are conflictual with my professional image.
I have many conservative and right wing clients. I am not knocking anyone or their beliefs, but I am obviously neither conservative nor hold right wing beliefs. Sadly, this means i live an almost double life. I try to avoid controversial subjects on the table; however, some clients like to take this time to vent about the ways of the world and I am not going to deny them their opportunity to do so in a safe environment.
I am proudly a sadomasochistic switch that actively participates in the bdsm community and unashamedly lives a non monogamous, poly minded life.
I support gay marriage. I mean really, I fail to understand what all the fuss is about. i do not see where this is even debated.
I support living your life in a way that is right for you and not harmful to others. I am openly pansexual.
I am pro choice. Whatever the decision one makes they are the one that has to live with that decision.
I am pro legalization of marijuana. i fail to see where we support old laws that continue to tax us to pay for the war on drugs when we could be making a profit and opening up new possibilities in medicine, fuel, food source and of course the recreational use of. Some of us are simply not big drinkers.
I dislike immensly that I cannot put these on a sign out in my front yard. It really should not matter. It does or at least it has.
I can here though. Even if someone reads this and disagrees with my opinions, leaves a negative comment, it will not affect me, not really.
Thank you fubar for being an outlet.
Wednesday was a very busy day. I negotiated terms for the second office and took care of business. I visited with family and friends. I even had dinner with a lovely girl that I embarrassed with gifts of pretty panties and wine at the table. She had no doubt where I was going with this little exchange. :D
I am really happy with the current changes and I am looking forward to even more...
February was full of changes for me and thus far am quite happy with the changes.
March has been much the same and now April is coming.
April is another month of changes as I make the decision to expand in one of my offices. The person I share an office with is not going to be able to continue to offer services and I agreed to welcome to my practice. I will be taking care of business tomorrow and set things in motion for April. I am going to be very busy between the two offices and am looking forward to the challenges I will be presented with.
I will post pictures as I get it all put together. I must thank Wiz for his contributions a long time ago...now I will have the beaches poster in my Ft Wayne office and natures heart in my office in Muncie. If I ever reopen one in Indianapolis I will need another one :) (right now i am hoping to get them to come to Muncie)
walking in the freshly falling snow, enjoying the look and feel of it as it dances whimsically to a music not heard by humans...the light of the moon and the lamps lit in the night glint off each flake enchanting, enticing, inviting me to linger in the brisk cold...entranced i stop and stare in wonderment at the simple beauty before me...the nighttime winter ground dazzling with the spark and twinkle of each newly fallen flake
It was not that long ago I changed positions within the company I work for. Here I go changing positions again!
I had thought that perhaps I would go on and participate in the Executive Director mentorship program. I work for an international company. We consume other companies and retrain direct care staff and train people like myself for the director positions and move them forward. I had even thought that perhaps after doing the mentorship I could move someplace like the UK...I speak the language after all! They have positions in Germany, Netherlands, United Kindom, United Arab Nations, Puerto Rico and Canada.
I worked under the director for the last 5 months and came to the determination that it is not for me.
Let me go back a month ago...
A posting in the paper listed a job in a Chiropractor's office. Just by chance I saw the ad the day it was run and decided to send in a resume. I am a very effective leader and do well in management positions but massage therapy is my passion. I am a licensed therapist that has been in practice for seven years now. A week lated the doctor called me and set up an interview to try out my skills. It would be three weeks until the interview and I wrestled with what I would do. I knew that my skills would win me the position but it meant that I would have to step down since the PC/QMRP position does not allow me much time for anything else. A week before my interview I put in my two week resignation from my position and accepted a four hour every other Saturday position in the company to keep my seniority...forever cautious. My last day as a PC/QMRP qas the 4th. The 29th went as I expected and we negotiated the terms of my working out of his office. I began officially today, the 8th.
Change is good...wish me luck!
I am currently working many long hours organizing the houses and retraining the staff while attending quarterly and annual meetings for the consumers on my caseload. I have done a move from one home on another team to one of my own and have been informed that I will be opening two new houses by the end of this year. YAY!!!
I enjoy the people we provide services to. It is the staff that have me pulling my hair out as they see how far they can set themselves up for failure. I have already made it very clear that I will make attempts to retrain and then if this does not work I will rehire. I have almost filled all the open positions and if I could quit leading people up the path to termination (HR actually terminates)I would have a stable workforce :)
I have moved to a little town and I mean little! I am 12 miles from a town that has a Wal-Mart in one direction and 17 from one in another in the opposite direction. It is not that Wal-Mart is anything to crow about...but that is the biggest thing happening in this area! On the up side...the scenery is beautiful. It has been a long time since I have been in the country and it brings back some wonderful memories. The changing colors and the crisp autumn air fill me with happiness as I walk my little dog around town or drive from site to site.
My family is settling in alright. It is not really what they wanted but they understand that it is transitional housing and convenient for me to travel to all the houses in my caseload and to my office in Ft. Wayne. I have put over 6000 miles on my new car as it is. I think that as we acquaint ourselves more with our little community the more we will enjoy where we currently are. I hope to eventually have internet access in my home and TV programming for my family.
In the midst of all of this my play time has all but disappeared. I had hoped to attend a party tonight but it is not going to happen. I am hoping to attend one next weekend. I could really use a good spanking...flogging...beating...piercing...well, you get the picture.
I miss everyone! I hope everyone is well and enjoying the changing season and settling into your own routines as I know that change affects us all.
