Cognitive Tests...

shader: brings sexy back
So many cognitive tests and one hand coordination test. And a Typing test that I did not do so well in because it was "read as you type." Not that my off the top of my head typing is any much better. Guess who has to think words fairly slowly as they type? That would be me.

But anyway, cognitive tests. Yesterday I had a voc rehab appointment where I had to do a bunch of career evaluation tests. These mostly involved reading, math, clerical, vocabulary spelling tests with a side order of "what pattern will be the next pattern?" tests and "see these random shapes, what shape will they make??" I have no idea of how well I did and it will be a couple of weeks before I meet with my voc rehab counselor to see what we do next.

Meanwhile, I am still looking for work. One job I have been pursuing is a job walking up too people and convincing them to sign up for lifeline phones. The biggest problems with the job are completing the tutorial and the quiz, not having a computer with a working battery and the entire "interact with strangers on the street and then take down their information in a way that is not slow as hell." Since I haven't been able to get the quiz 100% (which is the requirement) I will probably continue the search elsewhere.

Saturday I turned forty and was able to go out to eat with my friend Jerry. (Who has been my social support network throughout this. I can't begin to say how grateful I am too him for his support and our outings.)K sent me a cute happy birthday text and I was in general very pleased with my birthday. The dinner was even halfway decent at the shelter. Now I just have to deal with the continuing feeling of horror that I'm now forty. Since I did not freak when I turned thirty I hereby declare forty the new thirty.

Voc Rehab Adventures

shader: brings sexy back
So my work trial ended and have a meeting with the voc rehab people on Wednesday. I also have a situation at the shelter where I will be meeting with a caseworker to ensure I am doing everything I am supposed to be doing to get out of my current situation. I think weekly or bi-weekly meetings are going to be somewhat depressing since what I've been doing has been a lot of waiting with intermittent furious activity.

Shelter Caseworker is of the opinion that I should do normal things while waiting to kind of keep it together. Sadly the normal things I do require internet access. Which I don't have a lot of. I would write more but this lap top requires a power cord and there is no good place at the shelter to plug in. Also this thing is dying.

On the other hand I really want to write.

Yes I could write in my notebook but there is the issue of being surrounded by lots of people all of the time. I like privacy when I write.

Work Trial Adventures...

shader: brings sexy back
My computer and the contents of my back back were soaked by a sudden and terrible rainstorm last Saturday. So Jerry had to look at it at the library today. I have a faulty battery and the comp has a tendency to suddenly have the wrong date and time. This is not a good thing. When we got back to the shelter, the electricity was out for the entire evening and did not turn back on until the next morning at around 6:30.

So! The first day of the work trial was supposed to be an orientation. I arrived on Tuesday anticipating an orientation except no one was there to give it. Turns out that I was supposed to meet my advocate/helper type person (the work trial is conducted with the assistance of someone from the company doing the work trial so I don't get in trouble with the store if something goes wrong) at the store and THEN go to the orientation which was down town. Once that was straightened out, we went to the orientation and then I was dropped back off at CASS in time for lunch.

Wednesday was my first day of actual work. I am working at a thrift store which means I am doing a lot of organizing and rearranging of the store floor. There is one other person who goes to the same clinic as I do at the store but she has been there longer. Wednesday went okay and there was little difficulty except finding enough work for me to do.

Getting there turned out to be less of a problem than I was thinking but still nerve racking. I arrived fairly early and I think it will be best to arrive early so I can get breakfast. (There is a QT next to the thrift store so I will be able to get a good one.)

I had been hoping to learn how to use the cash register, but sadly, volunteers are not allowed to use the register.
