I make myself available because I CARE ABOUT PEOPLE! DUH!
Worked hard today, it got pretty warm too I might add. I think past 90. After work my mother took me to go apply for a position that does DATA entry for the post office, but they weren't taking applications. So, instead of doing the old fashioned forms of applying for a job, I decided to get all tech n9ne, and do it over the internet. I applied for a couple of positions at the hospital. One was for a assistant housekeeping position, the other was for some desk job. I hate applying online, because you never know who you are dealing with. Ya know? If I sat down with someone, I can tell by their body language, and facial expressions, also the tone in their voice of how I should act, speak, and portray myself. I can't put a read on who ever is reading my application, I guess all you can do is write honestly, and pray that whatever is suppose to happen, HAPPENS! I am not stressed, I am not worried, I would just really like to get out of this physical labor job. My tremors are getting worse and worse every week. I do not want to jeopardize my health on account of mowing lawns. That just doesn't seem very smart. BUT, at the same time, I am not going to quit Vision Scapes, until I have another job lined up.
So, when I checked my E-Mail once I got to my computer today. I had 8 letters from people I did not know. This is awesome, and this is why it happened. Ya see, I am in a Yahoo Chat group for the stem cell therapy I had. People were asking all these questions in regards to the "supposed" kitchen that is available to use at the Shenyang hospital. Well, I made a simple comment. This is what I put.
Hello all, my name is Mikey Riley, I had the stem cell treatment in theShenyang hospital. THERE IS NO KITCHEN!!! I just thought I shouldstress this, because we (my mother and I) were told that there was akitchen. This is not true. We did our cooking out of a crock pot,microwave, and used a power water boiler to cook noodles and what not.If anyone has any other specific questions regarding Shenyangcity/hospital, please feel free to ask me. Direct your questions to mypersonal E-Mail though, it is much easier for me to talk back andfourth on there. mobileRILEY@...God bless,Mikey
Well, I guess more people are members to this chat group than I thought, cuz all these E-Mails are from people all around the wourld. Asking questions about the hospital, treatment, and city. What I don't understand, is people start to get appologetic if they think they are asking to many questions. I can't emphasize enough to them that I make myself available because I want them to ask questions. I know how helpful it would have been if someone would have done that for me before I went over there. So, I guess what I am trying to say is.....I am happy to be of assistance.
When a defining moment comes along, you can do one of two things. Define the moment, or let the moment define you.
