Yesterday I spent seven hours volunteering right after going to Chinese School to help my mom sell food for the PTA, which pretty much meant that I didn’t meet the objectives I wanted to, homework wise (starting my personal essay, annotating some short stories, doing some Gov notes, etc, etc). However, I didn’t really mind volunteering for such a long chunk of time, since the work was relatively easy/ fun, and I got to tear people’s ticket stubs, which faintly reminded me of my time in stage crew last year. That and I got a lot of free samosas, too.
One of my few regrets regarding high school has been that I haven’t volunteered nearly as much as I would like to. Generally, I don’t have enough time to volunteer, and while I suppose I could always make the time, with the crazy amount of activity that seems omnipresent in my life, I often find that I really don’t have much time to volunteer, which is a shame. Hopefully I can volunteer more once the SAT is over, and after college applications are done, since most of my experiences have been genuinely enjoyable.
Also, if you zoom in on the bottom-most picture, you can peep my face in the picture.
