Post  Ace Yamada on Thu Apr 07, 2011 3:15 am


__________________________________________

NOTE: Ghost has given the OK to app him as the assistant to the administrator.

-Yamada, Ace-



    Date of Birth: 9 September 1985
    Age: 25
    Gender: Male
    Address: 651 Cordova St. San Diego, CA 92107
    Physical Appearance: I am a half-Japanese male, standing at five feet and three inches tall. I would say I weigh about 125-130 pounds. I have a small bone structure in addition to being short. My hair is naturally black, though it is often dyed lighter. My eyes are dark brown. Distinguishing markings include scars on my arms and thighs, a stud piercing in each ear, and a nose stud (but I have no problem taking those out during work to maintain professionalism.)



-About the Job-

Which position are you applying for at St. Matilda, and why? Please tell us a little about what interests you in becoming a member of our capable staff.

I am applying to the position of Assistant to the Facility Administrator. I have this degree in Business Administration, right now seemingly for nothing, but if I paid for it, I would like to use it. Furthermore, your institution and hospital, I believe, rehabilitates troubled people. Given my past, that is definitely something I can get behind.

Why do you feel that you would be an asset to this facility? Please give any and all examples relevant to the position you are applying for.

I spent four years getting a piece of paper that says I know how to do an administrative job, so I've had the teaching, and a little bit of experience. I like to say that I do pay keen attention to detail, which I understand would be very important in such a setting. Last, but not least, I was troubled myself once. I was very depressed, saw no way out, but somehow was able to overcome that. If possible, I'd like to help others to believe they can as well. I am walking proof that it can be done.

If you were to be offered the position, would you concede to a non-disclosure agreement knowing and understanding fully that you would be forbidden to discuss the facility's methods and procedures with anyone other than your fellow staff members? Would you agree to a background check? Would you agree to be rigorously tested for drugs?

Yes to all.

-Employment History-

Please list your three most recent employment experiences. If need be, may we contact these prior employers for reference purposes?

Barnes and Noble -- Mission Valley, San Diego, CA. Manager. May 2008 - January 2011. Duties included sales, stock, making schedules, receiving and inventorying shipments, finalizing drawer counts, opening/closing the store, and copious amounts of paperwork. I left for personal reasons.

UCSD library -- University of California, San Diego. Librarian's assistant. September 2005 - May 2008. It was more something I did to get experience working while in college. I handled checkouts and check-ins, shelved books, and put 'out of order' signs on computers. I left because I was offered the management position above.

You may contact both.

What was the best job you have ever held down and why? Conversely, what was the worst job you have ever held down and why? What were your accomplishments and disappointments, and how did your experiences at these jobs help you grow on both a personal and professional level?

I would have to say it was the job with Barnes and Noble. I was always busy. Always had something to do, which is really the only reason I work in the first place. I don't need the money, just a distraction. I feel that if I just sat around at home all day I would probably have procured twenty cats or something and become senile at an early age.

I learned a lot about what it takes to keep a business running. I was forced to learn to make big decisions--it's really hard to fire someone, for example, but sometimes you have to do it. Sometimes you just have to do what's best, and learning that in the workplace made me realize that it's the same on the personal level.

Not to mention, the employee discount was a very nice deal. Probably, my only disappointment is that I felt I had to leave, due to circumstances that weren't able to be fixed.

As for the worst job, that is easily the library job. I only did it in order to gain some working experience while I was going through college. It was basically come in, do what they tell you to. Usually, it was nothing. It was like watching paint dry. Dull. Now and then I had a little work to do, but most of the time I sat there staring at the wall after I'd finished my homework. I can't say I learned or accomplished anything from that. I could have been doing something more productive, like popping bubble wrap.

-Personal History-

Have you ever been convicted of a crime? If so, what was it, what were the consequences, and how did it affect your life?

When I was fifteen years old, I was convicted of possession of a Class A drug (one hit of MDMA) that I had accidentally brought to school in my pocket. It was found when, upon entering the school, I was selected for a random search of person by the school's security. I was admitted not two weeks later to a hospital, so I did not go to a trial or anything. From what I understood, my father showed up in court, and I was awarded fines, which my father paid. Since there were other, more upsetting things going on in my life at the time, I don't remember caring too much about it, though my father did end up coming to the hospital with the sole purpose of 'scolding me,' or rather, screaming at me about how horrible of a person I was. When he raised his hand at me, the hospital's security jumped on him and escorted him out. So I would have to say that the fact that it led him to say such horrible things to me made me miserable for a while, even though I knew that he probably would have done so, even without the incident ever happening.

Even though I no longer do drugs, I still instinctively check my pockets.

Have you ever, at any point, suffered drug or alcohol addiction? If so, how did you overcome this particular adversity and how have you learned from it? Do you think these past experiences will have an impact on how you interact with the facility's patients in any way? Please explain why.

As a teenager, I tended to abuse MDMA, which I got from my foster sister's boyfriend. I loved the way it felt, and didn't much care if it hurt me.

Of course, while I was in the hospital, and then Hadley, it was taken from me completely for two years and some. I learned that I could be happy without it if I tried, if I stopped dwelling on the past, because that was what was making me depressed. I would be lying if I said I didn't despair every now and then, but I no longer turn to illegal drugs to fix the problem. I haven't used any since I was fifteen, and I don't plan on picking the habit back up ever.

I believe that it just might help me in understanding what is going through addiction patients' minds a little better, having gone through more or less the same thing. I was not addicted to the drug itself, but I definitely had an addiction to the feeling it gave me. The idea is to find alternate things to do to keep your mind off it. To actually try your best, not say 'I'll try' and forget you said it. I could try to help patients see that perspective, and see if it helps them. Even a little bit would make me happy.

-Written Interview-

What is your greatest strength, and your greatest weakness?

First, let me point out that it's very hard for me to compliment myself; it's a cultural thing, I think. It feels too much like bragging. However, since it seems I must pick one, I tend to think that I am mostly easy-going in social situations. Supposedly I am easy to talk to, and I've been told many times that I am extremely polite. I suppose this is true; it is the way I was taught. This has been useful in everyday life for me because I don't fight or belittle people. Any arguments I have are civil, even if it isn't on the other person's end. I never cause drama, and I try to avoid other people's.

My greatest weakness is myself, sometimes. Even though I have mostly healed from the wounds that life gave me in the past, something occasionally resurfaces. I let it make me sad, or make me angry. I cannot seem to just not let things bother me. They do. In these moments of weakness, I don't really try to stop the emotion, for some reason; it just doesn't occur to me that I should do so. Therefore, there are times when I just sit in my self pity for a while, until I feel better. That has never interfered with work, however. I do at least force myself to work through it. And I definitely don't take it out on people.

What motivates or inspires you? What discourages you?

My motivation is betterment of myself. I try and I learn new things constantly. Each year, as a sort of new year's resolution thing, I will list one thing I would like to be able to do by the end of the year. (For instance, this year, it is learn to cook. Because honestly, I'm terrible at it.) If I jump into every endeavor thinking of how much better off I'll be at the end of it, it's that much easier to see it through.

I have the tendency to be somewhat bitter at times, which is a big discouragement to me. It likes to try to negate everything I've outlined in the previous paragraph. I get into slumps, thinking, 'I'm not good,' or 'people aren't good,' basically, even when I know it's not true. I just try to work through those periods, and make sure not to take it out on anyone. I've found that when this happens, it's usually at a time when I am bored. That's one of the reasons why I work.

How do you deal with stress and/or pressure?

Stress and pressure are facts of life. I just do what I have to do, and unwind later maybe by listening to some music, or practicing the guitar or the piano.

Finally, tell us a bit about yourself.

I was born Ace Finn (which, consequently, is the name under which you would find most of my records for the background check.) The name I use now, Yamada, was my mother's maiden name. I changed it in her honor.

I spent the first two years of my life residing in Yokosuka, Japan, where my mother was stationed. She left the Navy in order to have more time to spend with me, and to avoid having to switch my schools ten times or so because of moving stations. We went to San Diego, which is where my father was born and raised, and where he and my mother met. So, I don't remember much of living in Japan. After that, though, I did visit my grandparents there once or twice yearly.

Admittedly, I was a fairly spoiled child. My parents both held jobs paying six figures, and my mother would more or less buy me anything I wanted. She wasn't easy on me, though. She was very strict in her rules, but the punishments always fit the crime, and taught me very quickly to behave myself if I wanted to play video games or go surfing anytime soon. For my childhood, I also got along quite well with my father.

When I was thirteen, my father started drinking heavily, though I don't know why. I used to ask. He would always deny his alcoholism, or just tell me to get lost. A rift grew between us, and I became even closer to my mother. However, she died when I was fourteen in a plane crash. From then, everything spiraled downward. I was living with just my father and my dog. My father became very belligerent toward me when he was drinking, I think because my mother was no longer there to protect me from him. I begged many times for him to let me go and live in Shimoda with my grandparents, but he always said no. I was his son, and my place was living with him.

In a span of seven months, I made three attempts on my own life, and it may have been more, if my third psychiatric hospital stay had not been five months long. After that, for two years and a month, I was sent to the Hadley Institute for Troubled Youth. There, I learned quite a bit about how to maintain what little sanity I thought I had. The way I see it, I was not really so insane. Well. Except for that bout of Cotard delusions I had after my first suicide attempt there. Now, though, you can be assured that I realize I am alive.

When I turned eighteen, I left for home to find out I sort of no longer had one. My house was up for sale, and I walked in on a realtor showing it. She freaked out, and I had to convince her that it was my house, not my father's. My mother had left it to me in her living will, along with her money and possessions (most of which my father had sold.) I was able to take the house off the market.

I also found that I was missing a very large sum of the money that had been left to me. My father had been using my name and my social over the phone to transfer funds in moderate amounts to his bank account--stealing my identity, essentially. I had to prove to the bank that I had been institutionalized for years and that there was no way I could have taken out that money, and finally, they returned it to me. I had to have my social security number changed. (You may also find that in the background check, and that is why it was changed.)

Everything that happened later is mostly laid down in my application.

Other than that, I enjoy my solitude, though I also enjoy others' company. I love reading; I'm more than a bit of a bookworm and have more books than I know what to do with. I dabble a bit in painting. Most of all, I have an affinity for music. I've been playing the piano for nineteen years, just picked up the guitar about five years ago, and I originally thought about a career as a music therapist. Honestly, I don't know why I decided not to, but it may be something I'll tackle later in life. I did earn a bachelor's degree in Business Administration (after I finished my cosmetology school when I was nineteen,) because I once wanted to start my own salon, but I never did. The person who was to be my co-owner of it and I had a falling-out, and it never happened.

There is not much more to know about me. I apologize for this novel of an answer (and application, for that matter,) but it will definitely help you to see where I came from.
