Things have been going okay. Sorry for not posting journals as often, I just always don't see the need. Anyway I have work tomorrow! After a a few months of setup at my county's vocational rehab center I have work. Starting tomorrow I'll be doing a 6 week program see how well I can do a job (in this case jobs,) although specifically it will determine how much I'm payed. After the evaluation I can choose what job I'd like to keep and know what hourly pay I get. Apparently even during the evaluation I'll still get payed $9.50 an hour (Minnesota's minimum wage). I set a 20 hour work week to start with for the eval.

So what jobs am I getting you may ask? Well on Monday's through Thursday's I'll be working at a local burger joint between 10 and 2. On Friday's I'll be working at a place were the refurbish old computers and sell them to low income families.

After 2 weeks I'll be taking a break to go see my aunt up north. Up there there's a train club, the man up there who happens to be the president of the club befriended me after knowing I have Asperger's syndrome. Also in that town there's a BNSF mainline, so hopefully with my new recorder I can get so good audio clips!

Back in mid summer last year I revived an old laptop (an HP Pavilion DV7) that had a hard-drive death. I found a working drive in an other dead laptop and had wiped it (had malware.) for a time I ran FreeDOS on it but then I got bored, the I remeberd the operating system Ubuntu (which is free) and installed that. Now the computer works great and I'm currently writing this on it. around my birthday I got Sony Movie Suite 13, so at some point (if I get off my butt) I may post some YTP's or other works.

Been also working on Sketchup making sets and models, I have some shot that I'll post at a later date. More Trainz screen-caps maybe had soon if I get back on the windows machine.

EDIT: Today when I was at work my social worker (think that's her title...) clarified some things and I put the wrong info here. after my eval I'll move to a next step I can't quite remember what the thing was, but it had to do with competing for jobs. after that I'll learn how to make a resume and how to meet for job applications, then they'll try to get a me legit job. So basically after eval I can't go back to what I'm doing and going to do. hope this all goes well. Cheers.

Oh also I think I decided my nickname will be "Mankato" since there was a joke that my apron had a sticker saying Mankato on it. (They get there aprons and cloths cleaned there.)
