Off to the interview to the job I don't want. Come on, full-time jobs, won't you call me?

As a weird side-effect of reading Dan Savage's book, The Kid, which is about how he and his partner adopted a kid from a homeless girl, I kinda sorta want to go volunteer at the shelter she stayed in in the book (she lived in Portland). Apparently 30% of the kids there are gay/bi/trans/questioning, which I have a fair amount of experience with, as you know. It's a good program--only kids under 21 are allowed to stay there, but they try to get them off the streets and into jobs or education. 80% of the kids who go through the program don't end up back on the streets, which is pretty impressive when you think about it.

Anyway, the most interesting sounding volunteer position is helping cook for the people there. You cook, serve, eat, and hang out with the kids. For some reason, despite my general leeriness of groups of people I don't know, I'm interested.

Maybe after I get a job, and thus a regular schedule, I'll volunteer my time there. We'll see.

In other news, I went to a crafts fair today. It was pretty interesting--made me want to weave, and spin, and create, and do woodworking, and work with clay, and and and. It was for the opening of the new Portland Arts and Crafts Museum. Pretty small, but also full of very engaging art.

Also, Katherine and I are going to take up circus again when the new quarter of classes start at our local aerial school.

And I want to ride horses again.

I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE FREE TIME, YO.

But I'm excited about all these prospects. Also, about getting a job. Please please please, job, turn up!
