today i ended up working 5 hours at the non-profit firm compiling data and even though i’m temporarily cross-eyed, at least i feel better for having accomplished something that’s somewhat meaningful.
sew, since i’ve the luxury of werking minimal part-time hours for the next two months
to exploit my EI to figure things out, i think i’m going to take up volunteering again. i actually signed up with this non-profit back in spring, but barely logged any hours due to retail shift work :( LAME-O but the volunteer coordinator was super super understanding about it and was more than happy to take me on as an office volunteer, which i actually prefer over going out and manning booths at random locations (basically this non-profit firm specializes in liaising for and between other non-profit organizations in the city, as well as doing outreach on their behalf at special events).
other life updates:
- came home to another kale smoothie waiting for me… this time with extra EXTRA ginger <3
- there’s an french bakery opening up less than a block away from my house! also, i noticed a halal symbol on the cafe’s signage, and i think the owners might be franco-lebanese, like the barber who owns the shop right in front of them! i’m so excited! i’m not usually one for pastries, but even when i am in the mood it’s such a pain in the ass to bus down to god knows where for a $3 macaroon served by a sacharine group of hipsters :s but this time i’ll be supporting the first generation community in my neighborhood and i’ll get a chance to try authentic diasporic french food
