Today was the first day back at Real Change for 2 weeks and it was really nice to be back. I was sad I was not able to make it both weeks prior to this date but today was a fun day back volunteering. I definitely missed the conversations I got to have with the vendors. Looking forward to next week and the following week!

Today was the first Tuesday shift that I worked. I had a blast on my first Tuesday. The members were so patient with me which I appreciated so much since I was still learning the system. I made a few mistakes on the sales desk but I learned from them. I also got to chat with a member about how he is going out of town this weekend and it was fun to have a conversation and learn more about him. He was so friendly and definitely was the highlight of my shift!
Today I got to run the sales desk by myself with the supervision of the already trained volunteer. I felt that I really got the grasp of how things operate at Real Change. I also experienced my first really busy day. We got 7 or 8 new vendors which was crazy but also awesome! I really enjoyed finishing my training and am ready to start working on Tuesday mornings.
