So I stated back at my job today, officially as a temp. Of course, my boss did not have me put into the system yet so I'm using someone else's log ins.
He tried to take the weekend on call away, too, but we worked around it. And, he never called the temp agency to let them know today was my first day. They don't even have me in the system and they have no idea what my pay rate is. The boss also cut off my work cell phone today, with no warning! sucks! And, HR shorted me on my last pay check. I don't know about this new life. But, I'm trying to stay positive. And creative about money.

I saw four clients last week. That was challenging, but somewhat rewarding. School started too, so that's a lot of fun. This semester will be pretty busy. I just have to stay organized and focused. When I look back at what I did over the past year (working full time, school full time and part time internship 1.5 hours away), I can hardly believe it. It seems like so long ago and I'm totally glad it's over. Eyes forward, nose to the grind and hopefully this year will fly by too!

Bubble Head

Well, I played some poker last night and bubbled. LOL
It was only a 6 player sng and I played like crap. I got short stacked early, trying to experiment with different hands and had to go all in with KQo, getting beat by QQ. Oh well, I'll try again!

I've been thinking about playing the blogger battle on fantasy sports live again this year. Anyone else?

School starts this week. I have Medical Psych, Psychopharmacology, Child Treatment, Therapy Seminar and a credit for my Dissertation. Should be a heavy load, but I'm excited! This is my last year of classes! Hell ya!

Buckeyes Babeeeee!!

It's that time of year!
This weekend the Bucks take on Navy.

Week 1 - Saturday 9/5
Ohio Stadium, OH ESPN 12:00 PM ET


I see my first client at my new internship site today. He's a 13-year old boy with anger issues. He also had a suicide attempt about a year ago.

Wish me luck!

Also, this is my last week of full time work. Next week, I start the Monday/Friday thing. I guess it's good in a way. It will allow me to focus on school and my clients; the work I'm supposed to be doing. I won't constantly be in the car traveling here or there. And, I will get to see more of the hubby. Finances will tighten up a bit. But, it will be good for us. I'm really looking forward to this new phase of my life!

Famous Canadians

I found out recently that Bodog now allows our brothers and sisters to the North play on Bodog Poker Canada. Congratulations! I started to think of what famous peeps are from Canada and here is a short list of the female hotties I came up with.

Of Course, the lovely Pamela came up first:

Next, one of my favorite singers, Shania Twain:

A lot of people really like Avril:

Some others that come to mind are Jim Carey, Howie Mandel, Alanis Morissette and Celine Dion.

Since I'll be having more free time now, I will be able to play some too! I may even be able to play some of the blogger tourneys. But, first I need some practice....
