Ok! So this is my house! The one and only 2709 Guilford Ave. Our house is nicknamed the Arrupe House after Father Pedro Arrupe. Look him up, he's a pretty cool guy.
|The view from our front door. Our living room is directly to the right, the main room you can see is the dining room, and our kitchen is in the back.|
|Our family room! Full of wonderful used couches and a TV that usually works!|
Me and my roommates at our Thanksgiving dinner we had on Friday. Unfortunately Tim isn't in this picture because he was taking it! Anyway, starting from the left and going clockwise we have Erin, Stephanie, ME!, David, and Matt.
These next two photos show my bedroom, or to be more specific, my half of the bedroom. First we have the part of my room that is visually pleasing with my bed and all my fun things I hung up. Two things: 1. My flag is a peace flag, it is not is support of pasta sauce. 2. If you are wondering what that calendar is and can't quite tell, it is in fact a Twilight calendar. And I hang it with pride, thank you Sarah Cole!
This is the day resource center, where clients can pretty much come and hang out all day. Besides case work, which is what I do, there are usually other things going on for the benefit of our clients.
This is my casework desk! I didn't take a picture of my other desk in my office, because it's pretty underwhelming and I don't do a lot in there. Anyway, this is where I meet with all my clients everyday and try to provide them with whatever it is they are looking for. Clothing, housing, shelters, jobs, health care, food stamps, cell phones, IDs, birth certificates, eviction prevention, mental health treatment, and drug/alcohol treatment are just some of the things I do on a daily basis.
So this chaos is my storage unit. One of my main responsibilities is organizing all the new donations of clothes and hygiene items that come in, so I can give them to my clients during casework. It usually isn't this crazy but we get a lot of food donations during the Holidays. I'm in the process of setting up a canned food giveaway for next week. So guess who went through all that food earlier this week? Yep...me.
Ok so due to me being kind of dumb, these pictures are going to be pretty small, but hopefully it'll work. Anyway, since he wasn't in the last picture, I felt obligated to put in a picture of Tim. So that's Tim. The picture above is really awful and I apologize. Anyway, that's all of us at the National Aquarium with one of Jesuit support people Sean.
|This picture is from the Stewart/Colbert rally. In the ensuing party I was the only person from my house so I was adopted by the Camden house.|
This picture is me and Tim dancing. After being challenged to a dance contest we may or may not have busted out a choreographed dance to Bye, Bye, Bye. We also may or may not have practiced for a few hours the night before.
