Week 32- A lack of time and some praising :D

Week 32- A lack of time and some praising :D

(After the first week of being a camp leader on a voluntary work camp Mali Stapar)

You: What kind of self-portrait is this? I mean……

Me: t was absolutely the best self-portrait I could possibly make in given time.

You: But you had one whole week!

Me: I know, but I just didn’t have time!

You: Excuses, excuses…..Did you write this for yourself? :p

Me: No, of course not! I just took a photo of it.

You: So who did it?

Me: I don’t know. One of the voluntaries.

You: Which one?

Me: I have no idea. It was anonymous gossip, from the Gossip box.

You: A love note”

Me: No, no, nothing of the sort.

You: It says “Milena, you are doing amazing job.” Now let me tell you, you did lousy job this week. This is not a self portrait. This is just a note on the table sheet.

Me: Yes, but it is proof!

You: Proof of what?

Me: Of my hard work. I was multitasking, working, cooking, giving interviews, listening, running, washing, cleaning, organizing…….I just couldn’t make a better photo.

You: And now what?

Me: Now nothing, the week has passed……but people were very satisfied with me…..And I was delighted to receive this message……..

You: There, there….but try harder next week. Promise?

Me: Promise! It will look at least like a human being.

THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU for this message, anonymous volunteer! It made my day. And my week. My photo of the week, I mean. 😀 😀 😀


Week 21- Think big, start a little

Week 21-

And now let me count: Jelena, Milos, Sofija, Katarina, Jelena, Aleksandar and Andrija. Oh yes, and me as well. We were at a kind of seminar in Sremski Karlovci and we had the MOST AMAZING TIME! I was there only for two days, but it was so refreshing that it felt like a whole week!
So on that weekend we were taught how to become a camp leaders on international voluntary workcamps. (This is our organization). So look carefully in faces of these criminals…….one round…….once again…….(who is mafia, who is the citizen?)…….these are the people that will lead and be responsible for voluntairs from all over the world this summer in Serbia. Are you scared a little bit? Do you feel a lack of trust? Hehehehehehehehehehe, just wait and see. We are about to start an avalanche!

I love you guys! ❤

P. S. More on the topic of volunteering coming soon. Stay tuned and thank you so much for reading.
