Owning the First Day of School

I talked to Jeramie yesterday and it sounds like she had an awful first day back at school. If not awful then at least not ideal. Apparently she had to deal with the same kinds of things we had to deal with in earlier years, but she’d thought she had helped her school past them. […]

Side Hustle

Hey spammers, stop doing what you do best and stop spamming my websites. I don’t like having to clear spam. [Update 8-20-12 23:22: Within five minutes of posting this, there was a spam comment on an old post.] On to more exciting news. I’ve decided that I’m going to start a side hustle. The Art of […]

Deciphering Government Documents

I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks, but I’ll get to that later today or later this week. Right now, I want to tell you how much I hate sifting through government documents. Okay, hate might be too strong of a word but finding the exact information I need and then interpreting the wording […]

Phat Money

I forgot to take a picture, but today I was walking around with 9,300 UAH (~$1,162.50). I emptied out the ATM to get this much. I needed to give Yulia the money so she could pay for our first shipment of books while she’s in Kiev this week. I had ~15 200UAH bills, ~25 100UAH […]

Stepping Forward

I had a really exciting weekend. After the school dance I got a great package, as I mentioned but I also got some great news. You may remember that I had an advertisement in my old website design asking for donations to a grant I was working on. Well, with the new layout (which no […]

Extra space

I guess it’s crunch time. I have a little over two days left in Wisconsin and it’s finally starting to set in. For me, the whole packing up my life process is coming together in a magical dance. Things are happening, but to be honest I’m not really sure how. Don’t think I’m having other […]

Things I have to keep in mind

I officially accepted my invitation today. I would have done it sooner, but I wanted to read over the required material before accepting. I couldn’t do that because it was delivered to my parents house, so my mom offered to bring it up today. After reading over the Welcome Book, I’ve come to realize a […]
