Opportunities II

I am freaking out right now because now that I have started my volunteering, the people there want me to do other stuff for them too and I don't know how to respond to them. I'm already in the choir so that is already two committments that I have with the church. Then there is Brother Patrick who thinks that I would make a good teacher, so he wants me to temporarily replace a teacher that is going on maternity leave.

I really want to accept it but I'm afraid that it is going to take over my life and I don't want to be a catholic school teacher for the rest of my life. There's nothing wrong with that, it's not completely for me.

Then in comes Delores who first wants me to join the magazine committee where I would have to proofread and maybe write stuff of my own for the magazine. That is something closer to what it is I would really want to do, but I don't think it is a paying gig. It's experience, and that is a plus for future stuff. I practically said yes to that already and I don't think it would take much out of my times so I'm not completely worried.

She also wants me to be a coordinator for a youth ministry. So I'd have to lead meetings and organize retreats and fun stuff for kids. Now that is a pretty small committment and it pays. So should I accept or no? I want to but if I accept everything, then I won't have time for myself or any kind of romantic life. I have a feeling that if I get too involved with my church, it is going to become my life and I'm going to end up joining a convent (no joke). I don't know what do so or say, but all I know is...

Whatever you chose to do, it will all look good on a resume so that you can get money! :) Good luck!

girl dont we all....y didnt they offer u these things during college when u needed that crap on ur resume now? fools

but i think u should do the writing thing def but say yes to all of them but just tell them i cant promise you anything. as soon as i find a job, the job u want, i need to leave and do me.

that way u both understand that its not forever but temporarily until u establish urself.
