I have always liked the number three. For some reason, the number three provides comfort, maybe it's because I'm a baseball player. The third hitter in a lineup is usually the best hitter. Well any way I'm on my third post. I finished my project contract and turned it in on Monday. I also was able to finish Chapter one for my project on time, again Monday. Well, I've made it through a tough week two tests, two papers, and a project contract. So now all I have to do is turn in the paper work for the YMCA and I should be good to go. Finally I'm getting a start on my project.
Well as I said above, I need to turn in my paper work for the YMCA and then finish their requirements and I will officially be a volunteer working at the YMCA. I think that I'm really going to enjoy this. I hope to be working with poor and marginalized children as well as adults. I think that most of what I will be doing is working with these people in a weight room type setting, but I also expect that part of what I will be doing is working with them in a mentor setting. I hope that I can show that hard work and determination can out do brains and brawn any day. I hope that I can draw both on the experiences that I had growing up in West Fargo as well as the ones that I have had here at Concordia to help these people eventually pull themselves out of the situations that they are in.
