10 days


I finally got my computer back so hello!

I can't believe I leave in 10 days. I know i promised to stop blogging about how shocked I am that I don't have much time left here but I lied. I can't get over it.

Things are business as usual here.

A few nights ago, there was a massive mid-western themed engagement party for Sybil, who lives above me. There were bars and hot dishes and jello molds. Good times. Even Carol, one of the directors dropped by.

Yesterday, during Vespers, was the instillation of Nancy, the new pastor. General Holden Hilarity ensued.

Since there has been a decrease in the Snack Bar hours (and business in general) I am going to be part-time Maverick (general physical labor). I'm excited! I think that starts the day after tomorrow because tomorrow I'm being a painter.

I suppose I should start packing if I leave in 10 days. I'm sure you can imagine how settled in I am after 4 months.

Thank you so much for all the mail and letters! I am the envy of everyone who has a box near me :).

Here are some pictures! I've been really good about documenting my life....or giving my camera to people who are good at documenting my life. Maybe I'll post them after Vespers...if I don't get distracted. I'm not sure if Vespers is at 7pm or 7:30...hmm. I guess I"ll just hang around until I hear the bell. I wonder where it is?


  1. Remember the picture I took of you as a Maverick? It has finally come true. (It is posted on facebook)

  2. I forgot to post the link to an article I found about two guys riding their bikes through many countries in Africa. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2009922883_africantour23m.html
