So excited for my volunteer job tomorrow

Idk I’ve been volunteering there for EIGHT months. As many as eleven hours a week although I’ve cut it down a little lately. The ladies there are so nice. When i was younger I just wanted to get laid…like the dire straits song “Get your chicks for free”…Now I don’t mind just socializing with girls. And it’s a great job, I get to care for animals. It’s a lot of responsibility but I haven’t messed up too bad at all…not really once. I do it well but doubt it’ll ever be a paid job…the paid positions here are a ton of responsibility, not sure I can handle. Although I’ve been told I’m a hard worker and that I was “The coolest guy ever” by one of the girls that work there. I’m thinking of applying for a job at this place called Garden Catering (chicken place) because I really like the girls there who work there too ha. I don’t mind not getting laid but I like to socialize with girls…and they like me too it seems. One day maybe I’ll have a sexual relationship, but that will be in due time. Patience is a virtue. And I’m more than patient when it comes to that.

Sounds like you’ve found a proper way to spend your time.

That’s cool that you like this volunteer job and that the people there like you. It’s not always that way at volunteer jobs. Yeah, it’s a good step towards holding down a paid job in the future and you can put it on your resume or on a job application and it will look good. 8 months is an impressive length of time.

Thanks. I’d never thought I’d work there this long. When I first started working they asked me “How long are you gonna be here?” They almost didn’t want to “hire” me because they didn’t want to have to train me so I could just quit right away. I answered her question “An indefinite amount of time”. I’ve definitely made a lot of progress there. Doubt they’d ever thought I’d still be volunteering with them. Unfortunately with school starting soon I’m going to have to cut it down to 1 day a week…but I just love it. The eagles are awesome…but my favorite is the Vultures…and then the owls…and the hawks and the falcon and the raven and the crow. I love the birds. Everyone loves the eagles because they’re so majestic but I find the Raven equally as beautiful. And the vultures are just so damn cool. And then you go inside you get snakes, turtles, rabbits, guinea pigs, smaller birds, spiders, a chinchilla, a hedgehog, even a squirrel and some roaches. My favorite job is weighing out dead bird food…I take a scale and put mice and rats and quail and other dead animals on the scale and weigh them out for the next day. Idk why I find it fun but I do.

Awww hedgehogs are the cutest :heart:️ Good luck!

I’ve been working at local charity shop two mornings a week for 1 year and 2 months
The staff are great there
I have worked briefly at couple of shops in the past that weren’t so good but now I found the right place

Sounds like the kind of thing a lot of people would like to be able to do! I wish I could do stuff like that. Well done!

Ah man. Don’t remind me of volunteering. I abruptly quit my volunteer job at the library due to extreme paranoia/conspiracy theories. I thought the CIA/FBI/Black Ops were after me. I feel disgraceful. I feel ashamed. Will never go back to that place. It’s a shame too because I was good at it and it could have led to a paid position eventually.

I’m glad you’re doing good. I’m glad you like the women there.
