It just turned into not at all what I thought it would be ... Seriously it's been 3 weeks of me sitting in a back office alone. I've been yelled at when I hang out with the kids at the tutoring center, since my job "is NOT direct service." I have nothing to do - since I am the third year VISTA, they basically told me - "your job is to make sure the place doesn't burn down." No new projects, nothing. And it's a government office, not a nonprofit, so it's super frustrating with no funding (CA is screwed) and very limited resources. It honestly felt wrong from Day 1. Sometime you just know, I guess.
Hopefully I will be able to go back once a week to volunteer - I already miss the kiddos.
