Volunteering April 14th
Grr, so I had just typed this all out, when some sort of error occurred with saving it, and it deleted everything. Arg, sometimes technology makes me angry. Well, lets try this again...
Wow. I haven't volunteered in a long time. It's been over a month. But it's because I alternate weeks with another girl, and there were two weeks where they had scheduled Homework 'n Hoops not to meet, and then I was scheduled to volunteer over spring break, but I went home, so that didn't happen. So now I've returned. We've started a new project since I've last been there (we being the volunteers who work in the computer lab). We are now working on with the program Terrapin Logo (which I'm convinced I used when I was in elementary school). Maurie got a book with 100 different activities of varying difficulty levels that kids can do using the program, and we have to go through and do all the activities and make a list of how long they took, what they entail, and whether or not the kids would like to do them.
So I was working on this project, trying to write out a procedure to make a tic-tac-toe board, when Maurie comes in to see how I'm doing. So I tell him I'm trying to write a procedure to make a tic-tac-toe board and he's like wow, thanks for doing this. and I said that I didn't mind because I like messing around on the computer. then he said, well, I'm glad there are people like you in the world. ... It made me smile.
