Getting Used to Disappointment

I'll be honest. This has been a tough week. If you are my friend on Facebook you already know that I was hoping to go to Haiti as a rescue volunteer, but didn't get accepted. I feel so completely useless right now. I have nothing to do most days, nowhere to go, no one to see, etc. Seriously, I'm a waste of time and skin right now. I hate this!
I didn't have any major job hunting developments this week. That was the first time that has happened. No interviews, no call backs, no rejections either. Just no developments. I hate that! (I did apply to a few jobs though.)
I did volunteer for a completely and totally worthless project. I was hoping it wasn't a huge waste and that the organizer would impress me. (The organizer has seriously unimpressed me in the past.) But no, it was worthless. Yet another disappointment.
I think I mentioned this a few weeks back. I HATE it when people say "we are human BE-ings, not human DO-ings."  I am a DOer. I can't just sit and be. I want to help. I want to work. I want to serve. I don't want to sit on this couch and do nothing another day!


  1. Hey! I know you're in Haiti right now (or so it seems from the blog), but I somehow randomly stumbled on your blog tonight and was captivated by some of your stories. When you're back, I would love to talk to you some more about having you connect with us at Silent Images (the organization I work for). We're always looking for writers and bloggers like yourself. If you're interested, let's chat!

    In the meantime, check out our website at:

    All the best while you're in Haiti!!!
