Everybody and their mom…

Everybody and their mom…

Is in surgery, having a medical emergency, or something of that nature right now 🙁 I think at least 6 of my friends have had a medical emergency for their mom or their grandma. I was going to complain earlier that I am having a horrible bad hair day… but then realizing so many of my friends were having to go through this stuff with close loved ones, I decided WHO CARES about my bad hair day.. just deal with…

Last day at Falls Church

Last day at Falls Church

So, tomorrow I go back to Kirkland, Washington. Right now I am finishing off sending out some of my trip’s postcards while watching Trigun. The anime geek inside me is squeeeeling with joy 🙂 It has been far too long since I have enjoyed me some anime. Yes, I can only watch it for so long til I want to rip my ears off the temporal lobes of my skull, but I still enjoy it while it lasts 🙂 I…

You deserve an update .

Hi everyone who reads about my life! I have been SUUUUUUPPPPEREEERRRR busy with school, like… crazy busy. You should see my homework list I have to finish all before tomorrow 🙁 It is gross. However, over the weekend I spent about 2 hours making me an inspiration board. I found a lot of things off Pinterest that really struck me as helpful in my endeavor to lose my post-anorexic weight, the healthy way. Not starving myself this time around you…

Back from CAMP!

Back from CAMP!

Oh man, the last three weeks were AMAZING! The best three weeks of my life; Liberia is still the best two weeks of my life though. And frankly, since I was a camp counselor for lots of kids… I have NO pictures! Oh well, lots of experiences. The first week I was at camp I was in a cabin with 8 girls that were 12 – 13 years of age. They were at the camp from Sunday until Saturday morning….

From the POST!

Alright! TWO BLOGS IN ONE DAY! WHOOOO! Well, I have to load up some lovely postcards I received today and yesterday! So, first we have this card from Denmark/Germany.

This postcard is of the Russian Fairy tale “The Wolf and a goat” I…

Walls of Postcards!

Walls of Postcards!

Today has been a downcast day, outside that is. 🙂 I’ve been pretty happy with  my day. I got the last little bit of Liberia stuff I need. Four boxes of gloves, band-aid boxes, some food, face wipes (can’t have enough I say), and some instant coffee I feel like it will be great to have while there… maybe a pick me up?? I have one more thing I need to get… aside from borrowing luggage… shoes. Geez. But I…

Ridiculous shopping experience

Ridiculous shopping experience

Alright, today was the day I went to Wal*Mart and purchased all my stuff for Liberia…. I do not have NEARLY enough skirts, but I can’t find any that fit comfortably. I have two dresses, a bunch of shirts, and two potential skirts. Hopefully something works! It’s going to be hot, wet, and humid the entire time. I need to subtract a few things from the bill, but it was quite spendy. Seriously, the prices have really gone up on…

The Duct Tape Adventurer

The Duct Tape Adventurer

Hi HO!! Off to work I do not go! Next week though, I have some days to work. 🙂 Tomorrow is the fundraiser for Serve the Children! I am really excited for the work I get to do while there! I am the raffle ticket seller, job description, “Be polite-fully aggressive.” Sounds like it is just up my alley… other than that politely part; however, a smile makes anything polite. Alright, for the title. I have decided… duct tape cards, stationary and…
