Time for Plan B
So it was not until earlier this week that I finally gathered all the items I need to submit my application to begin my work with the Children's Hospital, so after thinking about it for a while I have decided I should probably see if I cant switch to a different organization instead. Only because I have heard that several of my classmates who have applied have not even heard back from the volunteer office or have been denied. Being that we are already half way through the semester and I still have yet to log any volunteer hours, I think it is time for plan B.
My hope is to get ahold of Monica at the CCLC and see if I cant start work with the nursing home organization possiblity. I think this kind of work with suit me well also because I can relate well with people of all ages, and I think it would be beyond depressing to live in a nursing home..alone..and have nothing to do but just sit and wait to die. :) I just think it would be nice to make someone's day a little brighter every week by stopping by and chatting it up with him or her. One of the main reasons I would like to work in a nursing home for my volunteer work is because I enjoy talking to people older than me and finding out things about their lives. See how they differ from mine where most of my development years have been and are in the 21st century.
We will have to see where all of that ends up though. Hopefully it works out otherwise I am most likely screwed!
