Summer plans
« on: January 02, 2006, 02:00:15 AM »
For the past few summers I've been aimless. I held a job here and there, but nothing substantive. I want this summer to be different. Right now I'm thinking about doing some kind of volunteer work in a third world country (teaching English, working with orphans and the poor) or joining Habitats for humanity. If you know of any worthwhile programs/activities specifically, please share.

Edit: Oh yeah, I'm currently a senior in high school.

Law schools love interesting ECs. I figured current/prospective law students might have good suggestions.

I've worked in retail. It's boring and unrewarding. I would much rather do something that will help me grow as a person (and look good on an app four years from now).

ain't that the truth.

my parents made me work, though.

internships are fun, if you can find a good one.

forward-thinking.  i like it. 

i wish i had been such at age 18.

what sort of things are you planning on doing in college?  i think your soft factors should form a coherent picture of a person. 

I'll definitely be joining the local YDA.

My father works at the UN. A few months ago I was offered a part time job at the Hague Appeal for Peace, but I had to turn it down in favor of studying for midterms.

want to be a politician eh?  or does YDA stand for soemthing OTHER than what i'm thinking?



Definitely not. I'm politically active, but I have no interest in running for office. I went out canvassing for the Corzine campaign a few times and I loved it.

you've never been to the middle of nowhere until you go to berlin, NH, to organize a field office for a presidential campaign :)

and i coulda gone to alaska in '06 to work for knowles. i just chose oklahoma and carson. both lost, so it's a moot point ;)
