First off, I would like to sincerely apologize to all of you for my extended absence. Things became quite hectic for me for a while there. I guess I will start at the beginning.
At the start of the summer, well, the very first day I was back in Tennessee (I attend University in Ohio), I received a phone call from one of the local animal clinics, they wanted me to come in and shadow in the boarding department for a day. I gladly accepted. It was not great pay, eight dollars an hour, but I enjoyed working there. I worked full time, getting forty to even sixty hours a week. Things were going great, I had survived the family vacation, I had a job, I legitimately felt alright. But then my step-dad came home….
If I have not already made a post about him I will, but long story short he is a terrible person. I thought I would be okay, but I thought wrong and ended up checking myself into a mental hospital (for the fifth time) due to homicidal and suicidal ideations. It was probably my worst experience yet, I stayed there for a little over a week. I will go into more detail on this in a later post.
After I was discharged the rest of the summer went smoothly, I actually got along with my step-dad, and I grew closer to my family as a whole. Then August rolled around and I had to leave for University again. Work liked me enough to keep me on the schedule, so I just need to text them when I get back for winter recess. I have already offered to work on Christmas day.
I ended up leaving a few days before University to spend some time with my aunt, uncle, and two cousins who live in Youngstown Ohio. This brings us up to a few weeks ago when I began University, which will be covered in my next post.
As always, thank you for reading, even though I have no clue why you do.
