Busy Week

This was a very busy week for me. My counterpart was unable to come to work the entire week, so I ended up teach all of the classes.

It was both a fun and a hard week. I have really gotten to know the students in the classes, and I am having fun with them.

One of my students is working as a technical assistant for me. I am trying to teach her everything about computers that I can.

Today, I will try hiking for the first time. I am headed to Mariental for the weekend. I will leave after my last class and go wait at the hiking point (hitch-hiking that is). Mariental is about 3 hours away.

I am very excited about hiking, and can not wait to see how I get to meet!

In Mariental, I will be staying with some other Peace Corps volunteers, and helping them to fix their school's computers.

Pieces of Eight

This was a very good weekend. I am actually starting to catch up with my self.

For the longest time, I was not fully with my self. I think I a big part of my was lagging in the past, while another smaller part of my self darted around in the future. The smallest, left-over part was where it should be, in the present.

Today, at this moment, I am feeling the most present I have felt in a very long time.

Eyes Turning

At this moment, I am tired of trying to create somehow meaningful posts; therefore this post will be relatively meaningless :-)

This morning, Shoni cooked some great vanilla and cinnamon pancakes. I cooked some hash browns. After breakfast, I did the dishes, and went for a walk.

I think this will be an introspective naweek for me.
