What has been challenging at your placements lately?
I think the thing that makes my placement difficult is the fact that in the midst of doing the tasks, it beacomes easy to disconnect the job with the goal. Not only am I task-oriented, I am also goal-oriented, so when I find myself doing something that doesn't seem to be going in any particular direction or doesn't have any particular purpose, it because gratingly boring and slow. Reminding myself why I am there helps me get through it, but sometimes I just have to push through, because God is using me in ways I can't see.
