First, sorry all for the lack of update I had promised! It's been a busy week and I haven't been home much. I'll try to get it up as soon as I can.
Now look out, rant ahead. Part of the reason that I haven't been home is that I volunteer two days a week. I won't specify where or what the place is, but stay with me. I co-oped there, was a summer student, I've been around for over two years I'd say. So the other day when they found out they were late approved for a grant of money to supply a summer position, and then gave me the posting and interview time, I got excited.
Until this morning when I recieved a call from them saying that because my college program is considered part time (no matter how many courses I take or that I go year round without a break, because it's online) and that I wasn't a full time student last year, I no longer qualify.
What a bummer.
I love this place and it won't deter me from volunteering, because really this is the best experience I can get in my field while I study, but my god does that ever put a damper on my day.
I felt the need to write it out, and this journal actually helped me feel a little better. Has anyone else had a let down like that before?
Oh well, brighter skies ahead maybe.
