Best worst week ever
This week has been Awful! Anything that could go wrong did go wrong. I failed an exam , had to uber across town because i found out i had the wrong location to an impkrtant meeting, 5 minutes before it started.
Today. Well first of all, for those that don’t know, among all the other stuff yall know I dk, I’m a mentor to two kids at the program that serves underprivileged youth. Today we took all the mentees to the haunted corn maze. My kids are the ones often made fun of, and overlooked. There was a prize for the group that made it out first. Of course my group started off in the back and got lost a bunch of times. To the point where we had given up. Then one of my kids said “Mr. james! I thi k is know the way to the end.” Even i was like “yea right!” So he just took off running, and when i fnally caught up with them, i hadnt even realized we were out. And no other team was even close. Seeing the smiles on their face for being winners of something(a rare experience for them) made all the bs i went through worth it. And then on top of that. We were elected “Mentor/Mentee of the month” before today, everything this week made me question whether i was going down the right path. But then. Seeing the smiles on my mentee’s faces. And the positive influence ive had on them and the other kids i serve as a social worker and volunteer was all the affirmation i needed. Just wanted to share that with yall. I been goin through it. But i’m good. :)
