Final thoughts on service
I found that volunteering at Simpson and Lyngblomsten was a positive experience. The most valuable aspect for me, from a selfish point of view was the opportunity to interact with multiple people that I would have otherwise likely never spoken with. Although the semester is coming to an end, I will continue to volunteer at both organizations. I have not yet had a chance to start the billiards program at Lyngblomsten, but I believe I will do this within the next two weeks. Also, I am looking forward very much to spending another night at Simpson. I must say that my first night there passed by very quickly considering it was fourteen hours long. I found that in addition to being positively received by the residents of Lyngblomsten and the men at Simpson, that the staff people at both organizations were very friendly and eager to help me. I am glad that I registered for a class with a service learning component, because if I had not I would have never had a chance to have such interesting experiences.
