Third times a charm...

Three blogs, one account, none made it past the first posting. I guess we'll see where we get with this one. For brevity's sake lets go ahead and skip the awkward "Getting to know you" phase and get right to the good stuff. I've recently stepped in a huge pile of shit and my life is starting to unravel a bit at the edges but hey, I can't complain. I guess one could say that I'm about as happy as someone who is about to move back in with their parents for a couple months after 5+ years of liberation can be. The fantastic news is that the lease on my apartment is finally about to expire. This lease has been like a yoke, a horrible burden which only time and exorbitant amounts of money can quell.

Lately I've become a bit obsessed with the idea of "the vicious cycle". At a time like this all I can see are vicious cycles in everything I do. My latest encounter was quite fun as they always seem to be. I just started a new job as a Therapist for a local autism intervention organization. This job requires quite a bit of driving so its important that I have a functional vehicle and the accompanying insurance. Did I mention that I'm like hobo poor right now? Yeah so of course they make me give proof of insurance all that before I can begin my training. About a week after everything has been approved and I'm on my way to getting back on my feet they send me an e-mail telling me that I needed to update my insurance because it expires 7/9/09. My predicament is of course that I don't have the money to pay for new insurance (See ridiculously overpriced rental agreement above). I had no choice but to ignore the e-mail and hope that they would forget until I could take care of it. Time passes, I start my on the job training and everything is going great. I'm happy and beginning to think that they don't care and that I wont have to provide any proof of insurance to them. Wrong. They threaten to cancel my sessions because my truck is no longer insured.

This brings us back to the vicious circle thing. I can't pay for my new insurance because I don't have money. I can't make money unless I render services through them. No Insurance= No Sessions= No Money= No Insurance. Gotta love that reasoning.
