Final Blog for English 1016
Well, this is finally my last blog for this class. Unlike others, I actually have kept up with this blog but like others, I'm glad I don't have to write anymore blogs about class or my volunteering. This week I will not be volunteering at JSV, instead I will be at Minitex working many hours so I will have a starting fund for summer. I will be living an hour and a half north of my hometown in Wisconsin with my best friend Calynn in her cottage. I'm so excited!
Class today was somewhat enjoyable. It was interesting to hear about all the different types of community work that people have been doing over the past semester. I was surprised to hear that so many people had difficulties with starting their service learning. I was planning on working at Children's hospital but decided against it since I knew that the application process would be long. I volunteered at the hospital in Wausau during high school in the pharmacy, since that's what I would like to do as a professional career. I'm glad that I tutored at JSV instead. The experienced that I gained was enjoyable and worthwhile. I might even do it next fall because I've been debating whether or not I want to join the Civics Engagement program here at the university. It really interests me and I might as well get recognized for my hard work.
Anyways, I enjoyed hearing stories about the other places and how diverse things were from place to place. The twin cities is such a great place to view diversity in a whole new light. I am glad that I took this class because it may have started something that I never would have done before.
