This Morning’s Finer Points:
•Feeling more whole after spending yesterday evening running intake for the food pantry at my favorite Buffalo organization, Friends of Night People. In the two years that we’ve been abroad, so many wonderful changes have occurred: a more streamlined system for documenting client demographics, more aid and assistance for Buffalo’s homeless, and yet some things were very much the same. My heart felt melty when some of the dinner clients remembered us from before, and were happy to see that we’d returned.
•I went to a job fair this morning, and passed my resume out to several companies. It was daunting and strange! I’d get sucked into these job prospects that I’m actually not at all suited for (“We’re really looking for someone with a background in hospice work and palliative care, but it’s flexible!”) without ever intending to. I did find a few exciting opportunities, though…fingers crossed that my dream of finding a job where I can write comes true!
•I received a bunch of adorable messages from my former students, wishing me a happy Teachers Day. This holiday is pretty awesome, and I think it should be a bigger deal in America.
•I’m currently eating rainbow sherbet, so…there’s that!
