Organization: California State Science Fair
Activity: Exhibit Approver
Wow, it’s day thirty and what a journey this has been. I have learned so much about myself, my city and it’s residents. But, I will get into all of that in another post. First, let’s talk about my final day of service.
As you’ve seen over the past 29 days, each act of service brings something different. Sometimes its a great memory, sometimes a profound lesson, sometimes sweat, sometimes fun, etc. And, always a feeling of pride and accomplishment. Well, today brought with it something very unique — a life-affirming message.
Now, this was not a life-changing day for me, but I now know for sure that at least some of the decisions I have made in life where the right ones. Specifically, that I made the right decision to not pursue science for a living! I served at the California State Science Fair and was surrounded by really smart kids who did projects that I couldn’t even understand — well, some I couldn’t. And, honestly, I didn’t have a huge desire to understand them. That lack of interest reassured me that I made the right college and career choices.
That said, I am so thankful there are people who love science! Without them we wouldn’t have all the advances that save lives, protect our planet and make our daily lives a little bit easier. I applaud all of the kids who had entries in the Science Fair and hope that today was life-changing and life-affirming for them!
Now, here is Day Thirty…
