Good news til the end of the week: no government shutdown! Now it's just a matter of time to see whether or not NCCC is in the budget by Friday or not. If not, then it'll be a sad story and I don't know what our next move is, but if we're in, then we'll keep trucking along.

Oak 3 has kept busy though! Today half of the team including myself worked program activities at the camp with high school boys from a Christian prep school. Seventy of them. Can I just say that it is a waaaaaay easier working with fifth graders then it is with high school boys? You would think since they were older they wouldn't be as rowdy...

The Final Countdown

I'm sure you've heard about talks going on with the nation about budget cuts and how it's going to effect a great deal of people and government programs directly. NCCC is greatly affected if it happens.

I have til tonight to know whether or not I'll still even be in this program anymore. I love what I'm doing and what Americorps stands for, and it's hard knowing I set aside a about a year for this and now have to anxiously go through today wondering if I'm still a member by tomorrow. Hopefully things work out, I'd like to serve for the full ten months.
