Well, it finally came. About a week ago, It seems like no one can actually do what they say they are going to do. The lady at the State Board was supposed to call me when they had everything. She didn't. A few other organizations were supposed to let me know when the things they were doing were done. They didn't either. It seems to me that if you work in any sort of licensing agency that one of the criteria must be that you are short or have to many chromosomes. Seriously. Doesn't it seem like the stupidest people on the planet are in charge of letting "us" (the rest of the educated world) do what we have been trained or want to do. Even public library ladies, (they can be the worst by the way). Why is it that smart people need permission from dumb people to do smart or good things. Ok, I admit that is a bit stereotypical. Not all people that work for licensing or accrediting agencies are retarded. But when I am in such a hurry to get stuff done and checked off the list, every little thing that slows me down seems like a big deal.
There I have it out of my system. I feel better.
My wife just told me that I sound prideful. She is just doing her job of keeping me humble. She is right. I don't mean to sound haughty or better than anyone else. I really don't. It is just frustrating when things that seam so simple take so long and no one keeps their word. I am appreciative of the work that has been done in my behalf so that I could be where I am today.
So Now I am licensed in the state of Kentucky. I have a few things going and all of them look great. I am setting off on my own. It is scary but exciting. I am most excited about getting to meet new people, and becoming a force of good in their lives. I am most nervous about all the business stuff. Treating people = No problem, Running a business = Scary but not unattainable problem.
Wish me luck! Here I go!

I am hoping this week that I get a message from the state! I learned last week that the State has all the information they need except for the last page of my application that my school was supposed to send in. I gave them the paperwork in Early December and for some reason they forgot that one VERY IMPORTANT page. The lady at the board said that as soon as she gets that page that has to be mailed, it would take 24-48 hours to be complete and issue me a license! I am excited and frustrated at the same time!

As of earlier this week I turned in all the information the Kentucky State Board of Chiropractic needs. By now or at the latest Tuesday they should have everything they need. That means soon I should be officially licensed. I am gonna make all y'all call me doc. but only for a little while. Then the novelty will wear off and I will just be Brad again. I feel like the kid in the above picture. We don't have that much snow but I would dig a path just like him. Thanks for all the good karma sent our way!
