First softball game of the season was yesterday. We won. I came home with a decent cut from sliding into second. The girlfriend is home for the summer, and currently on an island with very limited communication.

Mohammed and the naysayer

Peace Corps

I finally met with Mohammed last Thursday. He is my attempt at getting tutoring experience before I leave for the Peace Corps (30hrs are required, though I plan to do much more).

Waiting for Mohammed

Peace Corps

In preparation for the Peace Corps, I was asked to start tutoring ESL students. The guidelines I was given for this were very broad. I need to have 30 hours logged before I am able to leave. That being said, I am sitting in a coffee shop hoping that Mohammed has a chance to show […]

Peace Corps

Peace Corps

Two weeks ago I posted something a little cryptic: I also am not sure what I want to do (well I do and I am working on it but something needs to fill that time). This post is to answer Amy, who asked “So what is it exactly that you want to do?” Today, I […]
