Service for the Soul

Posted on

Hello again, World! I’ve missed you!

Sorry it has been so long since I have last blogged, but I promise I will be better about jumping on here every couple of days to catch up on life!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday Season and was able to enjoy family, friends, nature, or whatever it is that makes you happiest!

I had a wonderful time going home to Oregon and traveling to visit with family! Now that the long break is over its time to kick things back into gear and return refreshed, rested and ready to take on my final semester as an undergraduate student. Crazy!

For those that don’t know, I have officially been accepted into the Masters of Business Administration Program at Saint Martin’s and will be sticking around the area for an extra couple of months until my hopeful completion of my MBA by December 2016.

I have also had a recent significant life change, and as time progresses I am beginning to see the positives and I am excited to redirected my focuses on myself and bettering myself in everything I do.

These past several weeks back at school have been jam-packed with different community service opportunities through Circle K but also the planning for further involvement of Athletics with our local Boys & Girls Club.

With everything going on in my life at the moment, I have found these volunteer opportunities to be very therapeutic and rewarding. As some of you know, giving back to the community that helps build you up is so crucially important. I find such joy from volunteering in my community knowing that I am doing a little something out of my day to help someone who might need it most.

The first week back at school was Beach Clean up! Unfortunately I was very sick and was not able to attend. The second weekend back some of us Circle K’ers volunteers with a Lacey Parks & Rec organization called Stream Team to help plant trees and create a bark path at the Lacey Woodland Park. Finally, last weekend was our first Habitat Build for the 2016 year! Some Circle K members headed up to Tacoma to assist other volunteers with the finishing touches on a home we had began building towards the end of 2015. This was so rewarding for the Circle K Club to be able to see how their service was truly making an impact on the lives of those who would soon be living in that community.
