i got accepted! - February 4th 2017, 10:09 PM

Remember when I made that thread about sending in the application? Well I found out I got accepted! I got a call and then called back to schedule a tour as they said that's my next step. So on Friday I need to be there at 10 minutes to 11am and then they'll take me on a tour of their different departments, and it will be like an orientation thing. I will get a "welcome package" and it will last 5 hours long. I'm kind of nervous but appreciative that I got accepted.

Also my relatives don't know I struggle with mental illness and they're not the understanding type at all but when they asked me about what job I'm looking into, etc I at least got to say "I have an orientation for a job placement program coming up" and it got them to buzz off a little because honestly they're really jusgemental and shallow and while i love my cousins to pieces, the parents (my bio uncle and his wife) and my other uncle are not people I particularly like to be around.

I'm so glad to hear that you got accepted! I know applying for different things - especially jobs and job placement type of things can be super stressful. You should super proud of yourself for not only putting the effort into applying but for also getting in.

I hope that everything goes smoothly. Let us know how orientation goes. I wish you the best of luck! You'll do great.

That's wonderful news! Congratulations on your new position and I hope things continue to go well for you. Don't worry about the relatives who are judgemental, you know what you need to do to take care of yourself.

Re: i got accepted! - February 16th 2017, 02:10 PM

thank you all so much!

So just an update: I went on the tour last friday even though there was a misunderstanding and I wasn't actually registered for one that day, they still got to fit me in. The other new members who were scheduled for the tour that day did not show up so it was just me. I had to choose one of seven units to join. I joined the communications unit! I was tied between horticulture and communications and chose communications. I did make a mental note that I want to check out the horticulture unit sometime as a side thing though. So far, I went on Friday which after my tour, I stayed with my unit, did some work and attended the unit meeting, then Tuesday (I came home upset at how things went in my unit but that's another story) and then went yesterday, Wednesday but I went in the evening and directly to the horticulture unit instead of communications and now I am working on a mixed media project on Wednesday evenings at the horticulture unit. When I finish my project I will post it in the SE forum :3 It might be too early to decide but I am thinking of switching to the horticulture unit. It was the one I was very close to choosing but there was something I really liked about communications as well. I guess time will tell. I am allowed to switch units at any time. I am also allowed to participate in other units' events and get involved and things without having to switch.

I am going to find out more about their peer-specialist program and possibly join that. I am still confused if the peer-specialists on site is a paid position or not And trying to find out about the trips to the farm. Also employment and housing. But the lady at the desk said I need to ask my unit worker to come with me to the office for housing. Maybe he has to sign papers or something? I didn't know that before.

There's a lot to do there and keep busy with and that's what's nice about it. If I feel uncomfortable or upset and dont want to go to my unit one day, I can hide out in another unit or at their library
