So, I'm beginning my quest to find volunteer opportunities. The internet is irritating because organizations don't always update their websites. I've found a few organizations online that I'm going to apply to, but I need to find more referral sources. I know that I should network with my friends and acquaintances to see if I can dig anything up. Does anyone know of any other ways I can get connected?
In other news, I now have a part time, seasonal job with Macy's! I'm very excited about that. My mother reminded me that she too worked at Macy's, almost 30 years ago. I'm excited about the position because I can pick up hours that are available. From what I understand, I don't have a set schedule, which is good because I can have some flexibility and be free to do other things. It's all part of my "keep busy, get money" plan.
Random sidenote: Why is it that oftentimes when people (especially white people) dress as hippies/disco kings and queens from the 70's, they wear afro wigs? Were there no white people in the 70's? Did no one have straight hair? Why don't I see more fluffy blonde, Farrah Fawcett style wigs? (These are rhetorical questions of course, because other than jewfros, white people wore their hair straight in the 70's from what I can tell.) Anyway, that just gets on my nerves sometimes. When I think of white people in the 70's, I think of the Bee Gees, not fake afro hair.
