So I met today with my psychiatrist/case manager/life coach. It's always an interesting hour spent with him, seeing as he has seriously high expectations of me.
I was telling him about my frustration with lack of info getting to the right hands, and told him of my plan to make a news packet that I'll be distributing to homeless people on the streets, shelters, soup kitchens, and so on.
He loves my concepts of seeing the bigger picture and going for simplified imediate results, so at the end of the session he threw a serious curve ball at me. He gave me a homework assignment, due next Friday when we meet.
My assignment.......... Simplify the Housing Process!
What the F#&%????? LOL
What's next week? Cure for cancer maybe?
I think he has a sadistic side that really enjoys our time together a little too much! LOL
So anyway, this week will be A TON of research & getting in people's faces as I build a Housing Manifesto! ;)
On unrelated note, following my recent rant about the editorial meeting the other day, I was very surprised to hear from the new editor of Spare Change News today asking me to use my "Boston on $3 a Day" article, and to come up with other ideas.
either he skimmed right over the post slamming them, or he is pretty grounded. I like to think it's the latter.
I'll stick to primarily fluff pieces for them till I find the real answer to that.
Oh yeah, and by the way.... My name's not really John Doe. It's Gary, so nice to "meet" you all ;) Thanks for reading and supporting my adventures
