so far with my site i feel fine i suppose is the best word to describe it. i have yet to pull a three hour "shift" of volunteering at St. Anne's Place. Susan March is one of the directors over there and she's been really easy to work with and really accomidating to my schedule. The residents seem hesitant to trust or warm up to the volunteers. They almost make me feel like the services provided aren't appreciated or noticed but we stand as more of an inconvinence or a burden to them. I've been shot looks that seem like, "you think you can come in here and fix me and my problems?" Skoffs really. In our contract we aren't allowed to delve into any personal stories or testimonies. We can't share any infromation about ourselves or our lives which will make it difficult to make a connection. We'll see though. I have high hopes.
