how do I unlearn my phobia in terrestrial animals?
I’m both scared and excited. 70% and 30%, respectively.
Here’s the sched:
April 8-11: Basic Orientation Seminar (Tagaytay)
April 12-18: Immersion (somewhere in Mindoro, with the Mangyans). In preparation for this, I need to condition my body for the 4-hour hike and, most important of all, my mind, for the possibility that I might be sleeping with animals—-and *gasp*, be surrounded by animals 24/7. But who knows? Maybe my passion for doing this might cure my phobia? So help me God.
April 19-May 25: Internship Proper. I still don’t know where I’ll be assigned. During the interview, the three sectors I chose were in this order: children, indigenous peoples, peasants.
And one week either in Bohol or Boracay for an all-expense paid R&R :)
It’s pretty daunting, I realized. I was so sure about it before applying, but after the interview, I started having doubts. Can I manage? Anyway, God gave me this opportunity. That in itself must be a sign that I can do it, right? :) If I survive this whole thing, I feel like I’m going to be a changed person after. If. Please do pray for me :) And seriously, I have to get rid of my phobia!!!
