Onward and Upward

This blog really is not a complete reflection of the job search process except in that there is a relatively long time between any significant moments. I’ve made some calls to local and non-local hospitals. So far that hasn’t really been successful. I did play for an hour at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, which was really nice. I was happy to bring a few smiles to the people there, and an especially big one on one particular girl. They called me to play for my offered hour, but knew they weren’t going to be able to hire me regularly and told me as much. That’s ok, though, it’s been ages since I played in a hospital and I was happy just to be there. It inspired me to pick up hours at Abington, a Bedside Harp host hospital, and possibly work towards my Master of Harp Therapy certificate.

Today I did catch a possible break, however. My mother has a friend who has connections in local nursing homes and is very excited about the idea and the possibilities of harp therapy. I’ve actually had his number for quite a while. Don’t ask why I didn’t call earlier. I had/have a lot of self improvement to do, and honestly, it’s also kind of nice not to have any responsibilities just yet. Recently I’ve become bored with unemployment even though I’ve been keeping active socially. I know now I’m ready to shoulder real responsibilities. I suppose I’ve said that before, but I’ve been more active about it recently, so it’s time. I have everything I need. It’s time to move onward and upward!
