A door has closed but another has opened

Hello All,

I will make this fast as I am hungry and need to eat before my next class.

Yesterday was my last day at my volunteer position at the community legal agency. I got to finish up some projects and say good bye. I was there for six months. I worked in Immigration. But I talked to the guy in Housing before I left for a while. He asked for my contact information so that I could possibly come back. We talked about his responsibilities. He was asking why I never did anything for his department. It felt nice to be appreciated. I can't tell you how much I learned from volunteering there. We served low income people. I imagine that one of the worst feelings is being poor, being in a bind, and not being able to afford a lawyer to help you out of a messy situation. It felt good to give back to the community. I had always wanted to do something like that.

Next Tuesday I start my new internship, unrelated to the last agency I worked for. I'm sure I'll elaborate on it later. I am excited about the new things I will learn and new people that I will meet.

Anyway, I will write more later.
