    Ok so I feel like I wrote my first journal entry yesterday...where the heck as time went?! I'm still running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to figure out what I just got myself in to! Oh well no turning back now! This month has been a hectic one to say the least! I applied for my visa, received my vaccinations and shopped for the children of …

    One of my favorite things about Spanish is the many sayings they have, and each day I am learning more. My absolute favorite saying is: "contemplando la imortalidad del cangrejo" which means contemplating the immortality of the crab. This phrase is used to say you were lost in your thoughts, so in Spanish you know a good story is about to start when someone says "Estaba contemplando la imortalidad del …

    I think I'm going to absolutely love living at my new home. I'm living with my Sister Ama and my little nephew Echo (its not spelled like that but that's how you pronounce it). Her husband is in the UK for 6 months. My new home is really nice. I have a really large bedroom. There is a big living room with a few couches and a TV. I didn't …

    I'm finally spending a little alone time and it feels pretty great. I've never been very good at spending time alone but I'm learning how important it is to reflect on what's going on. Especially here in Ghana. I get so wrapped up in trying to do and see everything, that I forget that I'm experiencing some pretty deep emotions. I get emotional when I stop and think about what's …

    This blog probably won't be nearly as long as I'd like it to be because I have a horrible headache and looking at the screen is difficult. Today was such a bittersweet day. I had to say goodbye to my sweet students. I had a really great last day with them tho. When I arrived at school this morning, I was met by David. He told me that he received a …

    Holy rain storm!! I'm absolutely drenched. I've been sitting outside for the past hour, watching the children dance and play soccer in the rain. It was pretty fun to watch. They played as if they had no cares in the world. A little inspiring actually :) I kind of like that care free attitude and could definitely use a few more moments like that in my every day life. I can't …

    I knew it. I knew it all along. I was born in the wrong country! I am becoming more and more convinced that I am secretly a Mexicana on the inside. Last night for dinner I was offered yogurt and cereal to eat, which if you know me I like to eat my cereal that way, but it's not normal for the States. Apparently it's pretty common to eat your …

    Blog at 3AM, why not? I have only had heart burn one time in my life...right now is the second. I think I packed every single medication, just in case, but the only one I forgot was something for heart burn. I remember the last time I had it, I drank a bunch of milk and it went away. Well, I don't have milk. The closest thing I have to anything …

    Two nights of exciting soccer matches and I just might be a fan :) It's really cool watching the games on huge screens with so many excited fans. Last night we watched Real Madrid and Manchester, tonight was Chelsea and Juveves  (I spelled that completely wrong). It's really fun to be part of the excitement. Makes me miss watching Ohio State and Boise State football games.  Tuesday night was family night at ProWorld. Alex …
