I Am...

  • ...Missing Amy and Kevin´s wedding today, wishing a quick weekend flight home was possible....then again, I´d be tempted to stay home.
  • ...Just plain not hungry. My appetite is lacking these days; something is ¨off.¨
  • ...Wondering where the 2 little boys are.
  • ...Tired and so thankful it´s a day of rest.
  • ...Anticipating my first visit to the brothels in a couple weeks. I´m excited, and I also feel sick to my stomach when I think about it.
  • ...Sick of having stomach issues.
  • ...Writing as many postcards as possible in these last several weeks.
  • ...Headed to Copacabana (again!) with my B-family in a couple weeks.
  • ...Feeling lonely in more ways than one.
  • ...Planning a sleepover in my room with Silvia and Shirley.
  • ...Fighting the urge to speak only English for a day.
  • ...Loving Spanish.
  • ...Job searching & wondering about possibilities with AmeriCorps. ???
  • ...Making a list of all the things I won´t miss about El Alto. (the sidewalks used as toilets, lack of any airflow in any moving vehicle, the mountain-like portions of food)
  • ...Making a list of all the things I will miss about El Alto. (My B-family is numero uno.)
  • ...Day dreaming about the moment I´ll step off the plane at the Medford airport.
  • ...Saddened that mashed potatoes might not still be my favorite food when I come home since I continue to eat potatoes everyday. :(
  • ...Hoping for a nap.
  • ...Refreshing my view of compassion by reading Henri Nouwen´s book: Compassion.
  • ...Laughing everyday with my B-family.
  • ...Loving this sun!
  • ...Thinking about fantastic inventions like dishwashers, washing mashines, and microwaves.
  • ...Longing, peaceful, and ....
