I am still grateful for having had the chance to live here for three years. I have a wonderful friend and I have met interesting people. I’ve even settled in a bit and gotten used to the ways of the Hoosier. I will even miss establishments like Steak ‘n Shake if I should leave the Midwest behind. However, given how much I’ve complained about how this state has treated people in my situation, I doubt I’ll miss it that much.
Nothing is certain yet, and there may even be a way out of the particular situation, although it will not be through me getting disability. I still have yet to hear back from the Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation office, and the housemate has been doing a bit more earnest job searching. I’ve even suggested she return as an adjunct professor to the Indiana Vocational Technical College, or IVY Tech. I hope this works out for her. I hope she can find the CNC job she wants as well.
I cannot prove it, but I have a bit more than a vague feeling that things are starting to get better. Now, if there would just be some actual change in circumstances that backs up my faith.
