    I am so excited!

    I am so excited that I just had to share the good news. For those of you who don't know, I am working on my Associates in Arts degree in Human Services, Addictive Studies. My goal is to earn my masters in counseling. To make a long story short, I want to work in the Criminal Justice System, specifically with those incarcerated. Everyone tells me I'm crazy, but this is what I want to do. Anyway, I am due to start my internship in the fall and while I am free to work with any agency that specializes in counseling, I was hoping it would be somewhere in the CJS. As it so happens, one of my instructors (retired after 18 years in law enforcement) works with Douglas County Corrections (Omaha). Can you guess where this is going? Yep, I am scheduled to meet with the program manager on June 26, 2007! I am so excited... I can't wait! Wish me luck, guys!

    Wise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.

    The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.

    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

    Considering the odds of an inmate being locked up again after release that is a very ambitious career. I pray that in that career you are successful with just one life.

    I'm interested to know why you want to work with inmates?

    P.S.- Re-send your resume to my office, LeWanda.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    congrats that is great to hear!!
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
