Today I traveled to Mississauga with Nicole to volunteer with fund raising for a local cause here in London that she works with. Being that it’s a Sunday in between my regular Erica visits, I had nothing else planned and agreed to invest the time when I was asked yesterday.
I have learned a few valuable things today, but one thing rings true in particular: volunteer work takes a very special person… especially when it involves such a direct and dependent interaction with complete strangers. Cos complete strangers are very dismissive, and it takes a thick skin to handle that.
Right now, I’m exhausted from being on my feet all day, but I’ll pick this up again soon. For now, that is all.
