Just like to share what I have done over the weekend.
Saturday, my Fellowship volunteered at Operation Christmas Child. It is a Non Profit Organization that send shoeboxes stuffed with toys to children in Third World Country. Our job was to sort through the shoeboxes to make sure they are safe for the kids.
It was a great experience. In the shoeboxes, there were often things that I wouldn’t think of sending to a child. Simple things like pencil, paper, toothpaste, or toothbrush that I take for granted living in Canada. I overheard a story how a boy saw paper in his shoebox and was excited now that he could go to school.
Yesterday, my day consisted of:
6:00 am – got up
6:30 am – 7 am – in the pool
7:30 am – 7 pm – at work (data entry)
7:30 pm – 8:00 pm – dinner
8:30 pm – 9:00 pm – drop by to visit a friend
9:00 pm – 9:50 pm – pool encore
10:00 pm – 10:45 pm – rest my shoulders and back and watch tv.
I couldn’t believe I typed for almost 12 hours straight. Yup, I am feeling it on my shoulders today. Going to hit the chlorine pool again after work. So far I only have been focusing on doing drills. Master the fundamentals and everything else will be easy.
I also have bought a lot of gifts for myself…err I mean equipements to train with. I got a pair of swimming fins and a pull buoy. I also got two shirts from Wil’s store. Xmas is early for me. Wait..I need to save money for tooth.
