Post-Service Thoughts

So this was not my first time on a service trip, but it was definitely my first time leading one. It was a really interesting experience!

I LOVED the students we led. Just loved them. They surprised me constantly, and I am so proud to have met every single one of them. I wish I had been that awesome and well-rounded in high school- how different my life would have been! They will all move on to do great things; of this I am absolutely certain.

One of the amazing things I’ve found out about life is that there’s always something to learn; something new to discover. It’s interesting to think of myself as I am now, in that I used to be the girl who would sit in a corner with a book, never speaking, and barely noticing the world going by. When I discovered the things that I was passionate about, I realized I would have to change in order to make a positive impact with those things. But there’s always a middle ground, which is something I’m not very good with in my own life. I’m GREAT at conflict management with other people (read: social worker), but for me… I’m either THE leader, or a follower. I’m either silent, or shouting. I’m either doing nothing, or everything.

So these are things I’m still learning. (Perhaps if I talked to people more as a child, instead of reading, I would have learned these things before! Lol.) As it is… I need to work on communicating with people still. I’m a great listener, but I know I have the tendency to get overexcited about my opinions. I’m getting better at holding my tongue and letting people flush their ideas out; I just get impatient sometimes. Also, I usually get the feeling that if I don’t say my piece right away, it won’t be heard. On the other hand, sometimes I feel like it’s just better/easier if I do what needs to get done so others don’t have to worry about it. This satisfies me because I like doing work and I like knowing it’s done, and other people get to chill. However, I also have the tendency to get overzealous about this as well… So I wind up doing things and not communicating with people, all because it’s easier for me. But that doesn’t mean it’s easier for other people. I need to be more conscious about how my strong work ethic effects others; because it’s not always a good thing.

My biggest struggle seems to still be my trust issues. Every time I think I’m getting better, something comes along and shows me that I’m not quite there yet. I realized a few years ago how they were harming me, but I never before realized that they could harm other people. Which is something that really bothers me. One day I will be better, though. It’s a constant struggle… but maybe one day it won’t be so life-dominating.

I’m really glad I’ll be starting my new child care job soon; I just really love taking care of people. I also really hope I get to lead a college Pay It Forward Tour next spring break. I want to take the lessons I learned on this trip, incorporate them into my life, and see if I can do a better job as a leader next time. I’m disappointed with myself for this one… I want to be better at it and be able to walk away with no regrets. Though… I should never think of a learning experience as something to regret. It is what it is.

I’m taking a lot of really great things away from this trip, which is why I love service trips SO much. Not only is it just something I honestly love in every way, but it also impacts me irrevocably each time. Whenever I walk away from one of these, I walk away a better person. And it’s because of all the people around me who are doing these great things, and the lessons they teach me.

<3 I’m too excited to sleep!

Tomorrow I embark to help lead a high school Pay It Forward Tour through Students Today Leaders Forever- the same organization through the University of Minnesota I traveled with during Spring Break 2011. Basically, me and five other students (not necessarily from the U) are leading roughly 40 high school students through a few different states for volunteer projects till we land in St. Louis- which I haven’t been to in a long time.

Traveling and volunteering are two of my absolute favorite things to do in the world- and with such a great group of students! I’m so fucking excited. This is the perfect lead-in to the rest of what will be, I’m sure, a fantastic and busy summer.

Basically: my life is awesome. How can one person be so lucky? :)

"Oh, a brand new pair of fishnets with a WILD set of double seams all the
way from my red-lacquered toe nails, up my long legs, up over my round ass
cheeks, finally coming to rest on my waistline. Oh. You thought I was
going to post all the pictures at once? No, no. You know better than
that! I intend to post a pic here & there over the next few days … you
do remember how I love a good tease!”
