Looks like I am going to be doing more for my unit ALA than I am sure I am capable of.
The news I had promised was that I have agreed to take on Chaplain for this unit.
My beliefs are similar to theirs and they all believe in me, so it would only mean that I will be spending more time with them-one extra meeting a month along with all the other American holidays I will be required to join in.
I doubt this will be easy, but at times I feel that this is my calling in life...to be a helper for many and a comfort to most.
While my beliefs are diverse and my thoughts about certain taboos in the Christian world are different in many ways, I can keep myself detached on these particular subjects...besides, there are Jewish Chaplains in the American Legion and the Auxiliary so I don't think it will be an issue if I don't make it one.
I will begin my duties after the elections in May, though nobody else is running for this position, it may turn out that someone will do some write-in votes, but I doubt that will happen so I will resign myself to the fact that I will become the Chaplain for 2013-2014 for our ALA unit.
Who knows, I may love it, and keep doing it through the rest of my time there.
I have another issue with my need to get a job as quickly as I can...
I had an issue with my apartment manager/owner last week that makes me feel that I cannot live in this hovel for much longer. He is a pain in the butt and I have never felt comfortable around him...he is nice and he is willing to work with me since things are going bad, but he pulled an illegal stunt last week that makes me just want to get out of here as fast as I can.
In order to leave this hovel, I need to get a job, get all the bills up to date and find some place new to live here in the town that I live so that I can continue my duties to the ALA and be in a place that I kind of like living these days. I just can't live in this apartment anymore, not if he may do these illegal acts again in the future.
Don't get me wrong, he is a nice guy, but there is something about him that makes me want to avoid him whenever I can...it may just be me, but something is off.
So, my other goals are simple...find a job as soon as I can then find a new place to live...
