Journal Entry

Thinking about the last two weeks, RDAP has taken the spotlight front and center. (Goal #3) I am getting used to the routine and am eager to finally put focus on my recovery. I have been sober already for 2 years and 10 months so with that as a head start, I am well on my way. I have a caring community and can’t wait to really get into what the program has to offer.

While participating in the RDAP program, I am also 24 hours further into my live hours for VT Horticulture. (Goal #2) I have adjusted to part-time so I can complete both programs together. I have completed 2 exams for the Greenhouse Structure module and am reading the Encyclopedia of Gardening for homework assignments. Our spring and summer flowers are losing their color and I think we will be removing them from the compound pretty soon, maybe next month.

I have started my third educational book “The Biocentric Universe” (Goal #1)

Last, I have completed 6 step classes and 1 Hit Class for exercise over the last 2 weeks. (Goal #4)

There is an additional goal I may be adding in the near future. I would like to re-kindle a relationship with my Father. I haven’t spoken to him since I have been in prison and it’s been weighing heavy on my heart. Maybe soon?
