"Happiness is always a by-product. It is probably a matter of temperament, and for anything I know it may be glandular. But it is not something that can be demanded from life, and if you are not happy you had better stop worrying about it and see what treasures you can pluck from your own brand of unhappiness."
Robertson Davies.

all growed up?

As of the end of last month I am 33 years old.

It took me just shy of 33 years to figure out what "I want to be when I grow up".

In my past job history I have taken customer service jobs that I maybe wasn't cut out for, I guess I kept taking these types of jobs for 2 reasons:

1.) they are easy to get.

2.) there is an aspect there that was in some (very small) sense was helping people.

Most of my life the job of moral support was either claimed by me or thrust upon me.
I began to take to it.

I may not be much use in manual labor duties or in a fight but I sure can help you sort through baggage and work out issues.

I have decided to stay at my current job while going to school so I can become a licensed therapist.
I have had the idea suggested to me by my own therapist to maybe specialize in addiction therapies.

I think I will reserve choosing a specialization until I get some real schooling in first.

I consider this a decent way to satisfy my need to help people in a more direct way, as well as a way to possibly ensure that I can provide for my son.
My son Nikolai is growing so fast.
He is almost 10 months old and is 2.5 feet tall.
He has his two front bottom teeth and his 2 upper k9s, by next month he will have fully grown in his front upper teeth.
Hes just about comfortable with walking now and is getting eager to run.
I have been considering writing down some more ideas for short films that I have been letting simmer in my head for the last few years now.
I hope to at least write and help film one in the first half of next year.
more later...
