At this point in my life.

I recently started a new job. And though I'm still in the training phase, this job makes me happy. It satisfies that part of my soul. It's a huge company that provides services to people with disabilities, with services ranging from day programs, child care, and residential aid. (I'm currently a residential aid.)
