Well, it's officially been a year; well, almost. Close to 11 1/2 months anyway. Summer has just unofficially started, and that means a dilemma for a Peace Corps Volunteer assigned to an education position. It means a huge change in my daily routine. It means no students, no teachers, no classrooms ( *cough* Alice Cooper, it's your time to sing). But here's what it really means:
To combat this brain-drain, I've been trying to find some other projects to take up my time. I'm researching into the public library to see if I can help with their summer reading program and general library duties ( *cough* *hmmhmmm* Mr. Cooper, you can stop singing now). I've been working on my school's library for the past month with categorizing books and helping the kids to sign-out books, so if needed I could boost my verbal resume' with that.
I also have some vacations planned. The biggest being to Malaysia to party and see the beautiful country.
In other words, this summer is going to be a lot of downtime, but I'm going to use this opportunity to volunteer and see the world. Oh, and it'd probably be a good time to skype with you guys more frequently than the once per never I'm currently doing.
More to come, and I hope you're enjoying your delicious hamburgers wherever you are. Oh how I miss hamburgers. And chicken nuggets. And beer. And wings. Oh food...
