Volunteering…

Here’s an update on Veronica’s oh-so-interesting life (!). What’s new? Well, first off, my life as a volunteer has basically grind to a halt.

In a previous post i mentioned that my CRB check for the NAS has come through, well the lady finally got back to me (2 days later than when she said she would). The day she emailed me, she asked if i could go to the group session that was on the next day – a little last minute, but hey i’m unemployed, so of course i’m free! She also told me the details about the training, but i can’t make it due to it clashing with a prior commitment, and the next volunteering session also clashed with my graduation celebration plans. So long story short, i’m not going to be able to start getting some experience of working with Autistic individuals until at least March, when i am back from my holiday.

This wouldn’t be much of a problem, however, when i turned up to volunteer for the children’s group last week i was told my CRB for them had expired. I technically wasn’t meant to be there, but since i turned up they let me go along that day. Finally managed to get hold of the woman who is in charge of CRBs for the council today and dropped by the Civic Centre to fill out the form to renew my CRB. But it will take at least 2 weeks to get back, by when i will be off on my holiday any way.

So now i’m officially not volunteering anywhere. Which means more time for me to do… absolutely nothing.

In other news, today i learned that ‘grinded’ is not actually a word haha. Oh and graduation is exactly one week from today!

Sorry it’s a boring, photo-less post today. But i’m probably the only person who reads this blog anyway XD

Finally!

As i wished for last night, my lecture was cancelled today! I set my alarm for 11.30am just so i could wake up and check my email haha and low and behold, in my inbox there was an email sitting there sent from my lecturer. The good news is that because today’s lecture was meant to be a seminar for our essay next term, the essay deadline has been pushed back! ^__^ today is a good day~

The good thing is that overnight it didn’t snow much and we weren’t snowed in today so the uni was open as usual and i could still go to the office and hand in a paper copy of my essay! I’m sooo relieved now, i’ve FINALLY finished this term and begun my Christmas holiday!

Will be off to my friend’s for a Christmas party/ leaving party for a friend at 6.30pm, so i’m off for a quick nap and then start getting ready. I’m really tired cos i only got about 5 hours sleep since my flatmates got drunk and really loud at 5am! >__<  Then i woke up at 11:30am to check my email and couldn’t fall back asleep since the cleaners came in to clean the bathroom.

Anyways, hope everyone is celebrating their last day of term!
