Step Into My Week: Volunteering

I've been waiting for the weekend all week, since Spring break starts then. I'm excited to get away from school for a week and have a vacation full of rest. I definitely need it after all the tests and projects I've had due this week.

I was feeling a little sick on Friday, so I decided to lay low all weekend. Nevertheless, I ended up volunteering a ton. Volunteering always leaves me with a smile, so I love doing it whenever I can. On Friday afternoon, I volunteered at a festival for an elementary school. My friends, Marin, Josh, and me were responsible for a bouncy house. We had to make sure the bouncy house didn't get filled with kids. It was funny to watch kids try and get in the bouncy house. Some of them were crazy determined.

I woke up bright and early Saturday morning to volunteer at my friend's breast cancer fundraiser. I was in charge of manning the displays and goody bags. The wind wasn't working in my favor. Every other second something would fall down. I definitely got my workout in for the day running back and forth.

On Sunday afternoon, I volunteered at a ceramic painting party. We helped paint ceramic tiles with our buddies. My buddy and I had a great time talking. I ended up knowing a few of the other volunteers, so that was nice.

For school, I have to make a TED radio hour style podcast. I've been doing my interviews all week for it. I'm excited to see how the finished project turns out. As I write this, I have a few more interviews before I'm done. Hopefully, I don't have to work on it over Spring break.

I'm going to Orlando for Spring break. My family isn't the theme park family. Is there anything I should do? Anywhere I should eat? Anything I should see?


  1. Live for these weekly recaps, love getting to know the bloggers I follow! Have an amazing spring break girl! I haven't been to Orlando in forever, but Pinterest is my go-to for trip planning :)
