I love Friday. Not only because it's the last day of work before the weekend, but also because I get to wear jeans to work! Big deal. I hate dress pants and four days a week in them is more than enough!
It's been a few rather uneventful days in Boston. I was busy, but nothing crazy. Yesterday was my last day as a volunteer, which was actually pretty sad. I love going to the hospital every week, but it won't work with the new job, so I had to say goodbye. Hopefully I'll have a chance to go back and visit soon!
Yesterday was also my first outreach event as a volunteer on the Fenway Community Health Men's Event. We had a party sponsored by Absolute where were tried to get more people to sign up as table captains (the people in charge of selling those seats at their table for the event). It was really fun, even though the male models we were promised by Absolute were not all that modely. I got to wear this super cool name tag.
At the beginning of the event I was really nervous. I didn't really know any one there, but everyone else seemed to know people. I'm outgoing, but I'm also a nervous and awkward person. I excused myself to the restroom (where I took this awesome picture) and had a little pep talk with myself. My job was to talk up the event. Easy enough. I am not approaching strangers to do it, I just have to chat with people who have chosen to come to the event knowing full well what it's about. I told myself to stop being a scaredy pants and get out there. It definitely worked! I went back to the event and just started talking to people. We were all there for the same reason, and it turned out to be a great night.
We're off to Vermont again this weekend after work and I'm so excited. I can't wait to see my brother and my mom. I've got plans for a 12:30 spin class to get my sweat on before I have to sit the car for three hours. I'm really hoping it's not the crazy man instructor I had on Wednesday....
