Well, I went to see my old boss and applied for my old job back but only as an "on call" personal care attendant at the Salvation Army Homeless Shelter. I would like to get part time at least, but it's all the have opening right now. I am going stir crazy and getting fatter and fatter sitting around here all day and all night.
I have been going to the "ticket to work" program which is a one stop shop for getting back in the work force, so maybe I will get a good job, hopefully as a case worker, where I can actually use my AA degree. I think I will be going to Residential and Transitional Recovery Homes and see if I can put in applications there. I think working 2 years at the homeless shelter should help.
I found out for most social work that you need more than just an AA degree. You need a Masters with a specialty in children's services, or substance abuse, etc. Maybe I should just go back to school! I'm getting kind of old to be considering another 2 or 3 years of school. By the time I graduate, I would be just the right age to retire.lol
