Among other things, I recently accepted an invitation to serve on the Comité de Coordination des Conférences des Jeunes (they coordinate Bahá’í youth conferences here in Quebec; aka the 3CJ). I’m overjoyed and ecstatic. 🙂 The 3CJ is currently planning the upcoming youth conference in Montreal.
As well, me and a bunch of youth from the area went down to Danville on Saturday (the 15th) to bake bread and study the Bahá’í Writings. It was quite fantastic. I was real tired afterwards though. I drove from Victoriaville to Trois-Rivières to Drummondville to Danville to Drummondville to Trois-Rivières to Victoriaville in one day. If that’s not a christening ceremony for my new car I don’t know what is 🙂 I brought back a bag full of bread. The proceeds are going to the Bahá’í Youth of Uashat (a First Nations reserve near Sept-Îles), so they can attend the upcoming youth conference in Montreal.
I visited Accès-Travail today (where I took part in the job search club) and got some pointers for finding a job in Drummondville. It’ll take determination and effort. no barley cross fingers! I want to do it right this time, or at least quasi-right 😉 Once I find a good job I’ll be better able to pay for my registration for the upcoming youth conference in Montreal.
Speaking of jobs, my job at the SADC is going well. I’m still giving classes every morning at the Golden Agers’ club here in Victoriaville (a ten-minute walk from my house) and working on various other projects. At the moment I’m in the public library in Norbertville, a little town on the outskirts of Victoriaville. I installed Flash on one of the computers and I’m teaching it to myself. Tomorrow evening I’ll be off to Laurierville (about 45 minutes or so away) to give part 2 of an introductory class to computers. It’s going quite well. I think I’m developing a taste for teaching, and nobody I talk to seems to be suprised. They seem to see it in my character. It’s nice work. It’s nice to be paid, too. The more I get paid, the more gas I can pay for so I can go to the upcoming youth conference in Montreal.
Do I sound like I’m selling something? Sorry.
Well, I’m not all that sorry, actually 😉
