Y-not serve?

This semester has been crazy busy! And it's half-way OVERRRRR. Crikey.

I've been volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. It's a Christian organization that builds homes for families that can't otherwise afford at their own cost. We build homes. I build homes. Who-would-a thunk? I am gratefully one of their newest Site Safety Coordinator's. It sounds more awesome than it is. I pick out splinters and help my friends be safe, as well as work alongside the other volunteers. Along with my personal endeavors with this non-profit organization, I have become apart of Habitat's new BYU Chapter group. The President of the club is in my ward and asked me to be the Social Coordinator (I prefer "the social guru") and help get the club kick-started. It's been a blast! We've been working on a home in Provo and have another one that opened this week in Orem. We also had our first ever social full of waffles, music, and mingling. Thanks to Facebook and mass texting, we had over 30 people attend. Build days are full of painting fumes, dust everywhere, power tools, roofing, safety glasses, and some of the best people in all of Provo.

Working with this program has helped balance my life up here and put things into a busy and humble perspective. I love it :)
