Holding On (John/Chiana)

*falls over in relief*

I have a job! They still have to do the background check but I've filled out the paperwork and received the employee handbook and a take-home test to fill out. But I'm now a PCA for a home health care company.

I officially start next week unless they have me come in a little early for a little bit of training since I don't know how to actually take blood pressure any longer (the last time I did it I was 17 and taking a nursing class before I transferred to diesel mechanics in Job Corps.)

It may only be minimum wage (I was told that no one with the agency makes over $8/hr) and I'll only have one client to sit for at first but dammit... I'm fucking employed!

Once I get settled into this job I'll more than likely take the CNA course over at the local tech school and get certified.
