phil ochsymuzak (roxymuzak), Monday, 18 May 2009 01:34 (fifteen years ago) link

i chopped up an ancient honeysuckle with a chainsaw it felt like murder but my grandma encouraged it i'm so confused.

mermaphrodite (nickalicious), Monday, 18 May 2009 06:43 (fifteen years ago) link

the best smelling murder i will ever commit using a chainsaw.

mermaphrodite (nickalicious), Monday, 18 May 2009 06:44 (fifteen years ago) link

o_OOOOOOOOO

phil ochsymuzak (roxymuzak), Monday, 18 May 2009 06:45 (fifteen years ago) link

I'm glad you've left open the possibility of better-smelling murders by other means

autobahn mi (The Reverend), Monday, 18 May 2009 06:52 (fifteen years ago) link

mermaphrodite (nickalicious), Monday, 18 May 2009 19:38 (fifteen years ago) link

rembrandt what (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 1 July 2009 04:47 (fifteen years ago) link

sister sez i have to volunteer to meet worthwhile ppl and maynbe get job hookups. it just seems like so much work.

tehresa, Wednesday, 1 July 2009 05:07 (fifteen years ago) link

i mean volunteering is cool but shouldn't i fcus more time on paying rent atm?
this just makes me soundl ike a bad person.

tehresa, Wednesday, 1 July 2009 05:09 (fifteen years ago) link

No, it is hard work! I am trying to get a volunteering gig at this one place and I have to go to like two 3 hour long orientations. I'm going to do it but between that and job hunting - argh! She's probably right that it would be a good way to meet people though.

ENBB, Wednesday, 1 July 2009 05:12 (fifteen years ago) link

yeah i'm sure it would

tehresa, Wednesday, 1 July 2009 05:29 (fifteen years ago) link

one month passes...

volunteer work is kind of taking over my life

i dont really care esp now that i found out volunteer work counts the same as actual employment when applying for ranger jobs - at least according to the rangers i interviewed with the other day

current shit:

  • organizing a trail cleanup/maintenance day for city/county parks w/ 50 volunteers
  • tutoring refugees in english
  • maintaining 2 smokies trails
  • fixing up/rehabbing a museum by myself in a valley of the smokies - it was abandoned and in disrepair
  • gardening work for knox botanical gardens and arboretum
  • phenology work
  • bear work
  • some possible GIS mapping work coming up?
feel like im leaving something out

i need a job yall

roxymuzak, Wednesday, 11 May 2011 21:48 (thirteen years ago) link

oh yeah im back with the

  • elk bugle corps

roxymuzak, Wednesday, 11 May 2011 21:48 (thirteen years ago) link

I would like to know more about

bear work

Volunteering tomorrow at the biggest shelter in the city. It's just a one day thing but should be interesting.

\(^o\) (/o^)/ (ENBB), Wednesday, 11 May 2011 22:56 (thirteen years ago) link

Is it the Appalachian Bear Rescue that I'm now friends with? If so - <3

\(^o\) (/o^)/ (ENBB), Wednesday, 11 May 2011 22:58 (thirteen years ago) link

yes imo

educating little kids about bears! doing powerpoint presentations and stuff at schools and such

roxymuzak, Thursday, 12 May 2011 00:56 (thirteen years ago) link

awwwwwww

love it

\(^o\) (/o^)/ (ENBB), Thursday, 12 May 2011 01:02 (thirteen years ago) link

yeah not having a 'real job' has totally = increase in my volunteer stuff, even tho I actually have a fair amt of freelance paid work to do too! But I think volunteer stuff is a good way to get perspective on what yr really interested in and cld pos make a living at one day or open up work/$ opportunities, in my experience.

Latest: I am applying to be on the board of a youth health&wellness organization! :)
