So I just received an email from a homeless ministry, where they house, feed, and clothe the homeless, saying that there's a clerical/desk job that I can volunteer for! It may be free, but it'll look good on my resume, especially when I need to gain real work experience to gain a clerical job in the future. I'm rather excited right now =]. I don't know how well it'll go, but please, good luck thoughts and prayers would be very welcomed that this will go some place good for me. I just emailed them back asking when they want me to start, what to bring, etc. I should have asked what to wear, but I think if I wear a nice shirt/blouse and maybe some nice jeans or tan pants should work? I'm not quite sure.. Damn, I wished I had asked. If I get an email back soon, I'll ask them then, I suppose.

Other than that, I went to Alabama last week! From Tuesday through Friday. It was pretty fun in some parts, but damn traffic and roads over there! Boooooooooo.. Oh well, anyways nice things: BEAUTIFUL botanical gardens, awesome art museum, and good and serious conversations with my boyfriend =]. All three was free as well! ^^ I took some pictures that will eventually be loaded onto my computer, as well as vacation pictures from Savannah from November XD.

That's great news! Volunteer work usually looks great on resumes and applications because it shows you're willing to work hard for reasons other than money. :) I think you should be fine with your idea of what to wear and when you get there you can always ask if your garb is appropriate attire and if they had a preference as to what you wear. Let me know how things work out! :D Also, I would like to see these vacation photos!

Yeah I'm really hoping that this volunteer position works out. Not only would I be doing something I love (I love doing clerical/desk work, I have no idea why), but I would also be helping out such an important ministry that means a lot to me.
I really need to bug someone to do that for me.. I have no idea how to work the camera with the computer XP.

Sounds like a Win/Win for everyone then. :) Be sure to let me know how your first day goes! And go get someone to help you with that camera computer relationship! :P

My first day is orientation April 11 at 11 am =3. I'm so excited! *can't stop moving* And I eventually will ask my stepdad for help, seeing as it's my mom's camera and she doesn't know how to use it either XD.

Awesome-possum. I send j00 lots of good luck vibes in that it works out for you. It maybe free, but it could lead to different people or places. It shall also look shiny on your resume.

Also, it's for a good cause, which makes it all the better. I think you can never go wrong with just some simple black or tan pants on a first day with a blouse. So, you'll be a little dressy, but not too dress. Once you're there you can get a feel for the place and see how to dress.

Alabamaaa. So close to my state, yet so far away. xD I've only passed through it when I was little, so I have no memory whatsoever of it.

Yesh, I vote for pictures. Usually just plug the USB thing and it either auto loads it for you, or just go into My Computer, unless you have an older camera?

How am I just now getting this message? Lj doesn't like me or something.

Aw thanks for the job vibes haha. I need them. I really want to get out of here soon.

Thankfully, I now have a good idea of what to wear and I'm able to get away with more than the people I work with because volunteers aren't held to as high a standard.

It's so pretty! I loved the Botanical Gardens, which is free to get in!

I FINALLLY have the pictures on my jumpdrive, and now I just need to upload them to photobucket ro something and post the link here.
