For the past 3 semester I have been spending my Saturday mornings at a local homeless shelter. However, due to recent safety concerns I decided to stop volunteering at the shelter in the best interest of myself and the rest of the UMBC volunteers.
I wanted to keep up with my Saturday morning volunteering, so I decided to go with my friend Yasmin to the Gwynns Falls Park Monthly Service Trip. Each month various students from UMBC come over and help clean up the park.
I did not get to see too much of the park, but I do plan on coming back to bike into the city.
We spent 2 hours pulling and chopping off vines and branches. I did not get a before shot of what we had started on. But it was badddd.
The thorns were the worst! They would just get you out of no where! We also saw 3 praying mantises nests. I am not really an outdoor+ manual labor kinda girl. But I got into it and made quick work of this nasty bush.
Chopping down is serious business.
Even though it was freezing cold- we all were dressed for the weather and quickly warmed up.
We also got to play with some fun tools!
Post clean up, I rushed over to meet my friend Dan. He had asked me to be in a movie for a class project and I happily accepted.
I mean we all have to start somewhere, right?
I was slightly awkward saying my lines naturally- I wanted to get all the words correct and I sounded forced.
But I managed to get them done, I hope Dan’s project turns out well!
So at 4 pm I realized that I had only eaten a granola bar and I had been awake for 9 hours. I was in serious hunger mode.
I headed over to the only place that could take care of my hunger. Pizza 786 a local halal diner.
I enjoyed my lovely company….
And went to town on some fries and wings.
Things got a bit messy. I also ate an unpictured philly cheese steak. Hunger has no time for a photo shoot!
Have you ever been in a movie for fun?
