I know I said that I’d wait till I moved to post, but I can’t wait!
So much has been going on in my life as of late. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that I am supposed to move out on August 14th. Things may or may not have changed. At this moment I am waiting on a staff meeting to go over the rules and regulations one more time so I know what is going on and what is expected of me. I also have to wait for a crimiinal background check. If these things do not happen before this Friday, the 11th, I may not move on next Monday as expected. Not all is lost however, even if the move gets pushed back from its original date, that gives me time to prepare for it even more. This also gives me time to enjoy my life without a curfew; to hang with my friends a lot more and have greater freedoms. When I move in I will be on a lockdown for a full 30 days. I can only leave my apartment for food, doctor visits and group outings such as going to the gym. I also don’t know if my friends can come and visit me at my apartment rather than me going out to see them. It is getting very confusingi to me as to how the curfew relates to things such as group. I am supposed to put at least 20 hours a week with PSR groups (Psycho Social Rehab.), volunteering and work at a job. Yes, the program that I will soon be a part of will maybe help me look into further employment as time marches on.
At least I think that is how it is supposed to happen. I may be wrong, this is why I will have to go over the rules and guidelines–my questions will be answered then. I need this all done before I move in, I don’t want to start on a bad foot and get in trouble the instant I move in! I am finding it more difficult to fall asleep now a days; I am just getting so excited to move in to my brand new apartment. I will make new friends I am sure; I may even make a few enimies (I hope not!). I was in a similar program when I was 21 and on my own. I graduated the program and had all restructions removed. This included, but did not limit, my curfew, being able to stay out all night and was not forced to be in your own apartment during certain hours. After graduation I could even be purely nocternal. Life sure was great back then. I will conquer this new program and be free again! Now I leave this blog to relax and start packing in the next few days. I am hungry now, must eat! じゃね～
