If any of y'all are in the Boise, Idaho area and are the least bit interested in science, you should come on down to the Discovery Center on Tuesdays between 9 and 1. I volunteer there during that time and it's a kick in the pants hands-on science museum. Right now we have lots of little robots and cool things like that. I work with great people down there and the exhibits are great, even though the museum is extremely small compared to other science museums I have seen. I really like the work, too, I'm on a demo team that teaches stuff to classes that come in. Though I have to admit that part of the reason I signed up is so I could play with the exhibits a lot. ;)
Which reminds me that I need to go get ready to go. I'm still fighting the depression and anxiety and even though I love being down there when I'm there, I'm always filled with dread at the thought of leaving my house. Anyone else get anxiety like that? I really have to force myself into commitments or else I'd be in the house watching TV and playing games or surfing the internet all day, hiding from things I 'should' be doing. BLEAH!!! I want to be functional again already!
