The first half of April was a blast for not only me, but also for my girlfriend who was able to visit me. After long and painful nights of planning and organizing her safe trip to Estonia in times of a pandemic nothing could stop us from having ten short but sweet days spend together after being separated for months. Not even new rules regarding the transit in Latvia that were established just a few hours before her flight departed.
So I again borrowed Madlis car, drove to our booked apartment in Tallinn and picked her up at 1 am in the night. And even though the following days formed themselves into important and treasurable memories in my head I will tell you a lot about this trip.
… that’s what I kinda felt like this month.
I mean, yeah, I also came to Estonia to think about university choices and future careers, but being a Youtube- host was definitely not on my list of realistic future goals. Well, luckily, sometimes secret dreams get fulfilled and I was very pleased to combine two of my major skills and interests in this work month: Communication and Environment Protection. But how did the project work, and why did we do it?
Let's start with the fact that during the process of preparing myself and documents for this volunteering, there were a lot of troubles, and therefore, having arrived in Estonia for the first weeks, I couldn’t believe that I am finally here.
Like Xaver, I’ve spent my quarantine (this was also difficult challenge for me), which, by the way, lasted too long (*you know the story about our Portuguese neighbor, and if not, I advise you to read Xaver's last blog).
I have not been going to the Tõrva Youth Center for 2 months. I do not include our compulsory weekly meetings with my Tutor. Doors opened as of yesterday Lol ...
Mid-term Meeting: There are basic training we need to take during the volunteering period. The second of these is Mid-term. In this training, you actually gain awareness on "volunteering", "the sociological base of your country" and "communication with different age groups". Sometimes the activities we want to do with children and young people do not match their expectations from us. What I understand is that it is not always possible to be an efficient, cool and funny volunteer.
