Vocational No-habilitation...

I still haven't heard back from vocational rehabilitation.  I am thinking I may need to do a follow up call.  I am still excited though.  I dreamed last night that I was a working man.  It was a pleasant dream of where I had gotten my first paycheck.  Sadly, the paycheck all went to bills, but it still felt so good to be able to pay my way.  I think that is so important for the mental health of a man to be self supporting. 

Lately, I am dreaming lots as in daydreams.  I dream of a newer, faster computer.  Of ordering the parts and putting it together.  Of picking out the processor, motherboard, and RAM.  Of playing the latest games with full graphics even though I rarely play games these days.  I dream of buying my own little pickup truck by the sweat of my brow.  I also dream of cameras and being able to buy a digital SLR.   It has been years since I've had these feelings and it feels hopeful, good, and healthy.

Yes, it is always good to give those agencies a call. They always get so busy. And it will show how motivated you are.

It is fun to dream of the possiblities and create what you want in your life.

When dealing with voc rehab, you must have patience and be persistent. That's what I've learned anyway.

Dreaming is always good. :)

P.S. I like Maggie's picture on your blog banner. So precious.

I think photography is s such a great outlet and a good way for you to express yourself Andrew. A digital SLr will be great.

A follow up call would probably do some good.

What's a slr? I feel so ignorant! :)
