                Yes, despite technology, there is a human somewhere.  So
best to not get to mushy *lol*.  
                Even just them keeping a transcript is creepy enough for me,
it's bad enough that Gmail does the same thing some place, but technically
Apple can go into their devices too if they needed to.  Well so could Micro
Soft too.  They usually ask for permission though, but in theory your
machine could be used against you.

                        The bluetooth keyboard is great.  It was getting
annoying to have to tap each letter twice to select it.  It was fine for
texts but not email.  My fingers are a bit big and this small keyboard takes
some getting used to.  So please forgive any typos til I get used to it.  I
type too fast to hear all the letters and words.  I am glad I got it.

wonder what all they are doing with the money budgeted to them doesn't it?
I know in most States the budget allotment for rehab is on the bottom, but
it's still pretty sizable, and at most it is frozen, not actually cut.  They
are more likely to cut services.  
                                                                 
                                                                The biggest
thing you've got on them is if you take it outside the agency.  They will
listen to you then because they don't want it outside.  It's been that way
my whole life, and I've been around for a little while.  
                                                                 
                                                                I think you

counselor sent me an e-mail this morning including his supervisor and he
attempted to clarify what he didn't say yesterday, but says I must have
misunderstood because he was including funding to cover my textbooks.
However, he didn't touch the fact that they cover rent and dorm room
expenses for students as well as meal money. He only went on to say that if
for some reason the money does not come in, in a timely manner then they
would definitely reimburse me. He isn't getting the fact that he is doing
this completely different from the previous two VR counselors and he refuses
to provide me with any documentation regarding any changes that may have
taken place.
        
Interesting enough I found out before my previous counselor left that due to
the pay that they were offering for VR counselors, my state agency, they
couldn't get anyone of any quality to take the job. This seems to be evident
without her ever saying the first word. I hope and pray that he gets better
in time and isn't just there for a paycheck which it is seeming that way
right now. The good news is, he thought he was being a rather smart guy by
including his supervisor, but now I know who she is and have her e-mail
address. So, now I will start discussing all these new apparent chages with
her and see what she has to say about it if things continue to go down hill.
I believe I could do his job without a degree or at least as good as he is
doing anyways. Perhaps I will talk to her about taking his job *LOL* j/k.

                                                                I have
fought my VR counselor ever since he became my VR counselor. He has
requested documents that no other counselor has requested, he has made
incorrect statements regarding whether or not he will accept the
university's recommendation for a lighter courseload, he has tried to shut
down my continuing education, and now he is messing with my money. I did
gain some ground though on the continuing education because when I first
started VR I told them I want to go to law school. Well, the VR counselor at
the time told me that I should probably go with a lighter load, so I did. I
did make her document somewhere though that I want to go to law school.  I
told my second counselor the same thing and told her I may continue on with
psychology. Well, it gets to this guy who thinks he is all of that and a bag
of *insert your favorite chip here* *LOL* and I talked to him briefly once
before regarding continuing on and he said that they would have to see, but
he sounded doubtful. So, when I was talking to him seriously about it I
asked him if the department was going to pay for me to continue on with a
higher degree or if I am going to have to get representation to fight for
it. He didn't answer me directly and we hung up. We started discussing it
off and on and he opened up the door for me to ask about law school again
when he said that they cannot tell me what to do. I took the window of
opportunity. The latest is I need to pick between law school and psychology
and let him know by Friday. Now, a new battle has popped its ugly head up
and that is him not giving me funding for my textbooks when they pay other
people's rent. He wants me to go out and purchase the 5 or 600 dollars
sometimes maybe even $800 worth of textbooks each semester and then they
will reimburse me for supplies and textbooks. Um, no! This has never been
done this way before so I want answers as to why it is this way now other
than the fact I pushed them on one battle so now they are trying to come at
me from a different angle. I told them I fight enough battles on my own
without having to fight the very system that is there to help me by
providing the funding I need to go to school. I am hoping that I can get
someone a lot better to handle this or at least make him better through
prayer.
                                                                    For some
reason though I thought when given the opportunity to go to law school I
would jump on it and run, but really and truthful I am having a hard time
choosing. I am actually leaning more toward mental health counselor which is
completely different from what I was looking at from the get go because if I
stayed with counseling and didn't go for the law school then I wanted to do
family counseling, but now the mental health counseling is appealing to me.
So, now that I havea choice the turmoil has started *LOL*. Do I go for a JD
or do I go for an MA in counseling.
