When I become more independent with my skills I would like to go to college. I want to become a social worker or a paramedic. I like to help people when they are sick. My other goals in life are to get my own apartment, a car, or a sport bike. I would like to get tattoos of stuff that represents my recovery, like my survivor tattoo that I designed. It's a heart with a cross and a ribbon across that says "I am a survivor". I have a picture at the bottom of the tattoo I designed. Also, tattoos of skulls, hearts, and crosses. I want to cut my hair and dye it red and black so it matches my bike. I want to get my own bank account so I can go shopping for food and other necessities. For fun I might go on rides on my bike. I want to go to clubs and meet friends. I will also come back and visit ADS! I will call Lorraine and ask her to go on a girls night where I pay.
To be able to do all these things I am going to show I am able to control my emotions and behavior by using coping skills. I will work hard at my goals to express my emotions appropriately. By attending counseling I will have support. When I go to school to become a social worker I will know how to talk to people positively and calmly. By practicing money management, life skills and social skills at ADS I will be prepared to live independently.
