Hey…so….yeah….

Well hello there!! As you can see I took a month…er…two, hiatus. It’s not because I wanted to…it’s because I’m lazy. Alas, it’s true. It is my favorite spiritual gift. I used to think I was just a very efficient person. No. Not at all. I’m efficient because I’m lazy and don’t want to work any harder than absolutely necessary. So, if a bad quality causes a good quality does that in fact make the bad quality, bad? Boom! As a comedian once said, “Procrastinate now. Don’t put it off.”

Anywho. Those of you know me know I’m not really lazy. Every one has ebs and flows of laziness. And, truthfully, I didn’t have much to update about. Those of you who know me also know that if I don’t have anything to say, I usually don’t. And those of you who don’t know me, now you do.

Onward to the update!

So, there is a blog being posted so I obviously have some stuff to update you on.

1) My friend Meryl had a baby. That makes me feel really old.

2) Hunger Games rocked not only my socks off, but also my shoes and ankle braces. I don’t wear ankle braces, but if I did they would have been rocked off. And not the velcro kind, the lace up kind. Way harder to rock off.

3) I bought ‘Ghosts Upon the Earth’ by Gungor. Dude. Get it. It’s sweet

4) Create a station called “Pentatonix” on pandora.com. You won’t regret it.

And lastly-

Papua New Guinea!!! I am currently at 36% support. Over 1/3!! Boom. I went through a period of freaking out, and then Jesus was like, “Really?” and I was like, “My bad.” And then we fist bumped and everything was cool. Or something like that.

Another change to my schedule, is that I will be leaving mid-July now, instead of August. The school asked if I could get there early to start their school year off in July (they do year round school) rather than coming in in September after the August training. All that to say, I’m leaving a bit earlier, and that’s pretty sweet.

Other than that, I’ve sent in some forms, gotten together with some churches and that’s where we are. I’ve gotten many one time donations which has been awesome and I am still in need of monthly supporters. Other than that, things are smooth sailing.

I would now like to put forth a disclaimer-

If it seems like my level of excitement is not at a high enough level for one who is leaving the country, I apologize. I am excited. The reality of it hasn’t hit me yet, is all. For example, when I went to Israel last year, I wasn’t blown away or excited until the 2nd day I was actually in Israel. I tend to take things in stride to prevent freaking out, like “Yeah, being on a plane for twelve hours is normal.” I can’t visualize things before they are actually happening (like setting up a field while I was on REC Team. I had to lay out all of the tape and THEN make the rectangle straight). So, yes, I am super excited about this opportunity. I’ll make a video for you guys my second day in New Guinea so that you can relish in all of the pent up excitement that I had been holding back for months 🙂

Welp, that’s all I’ve got for now. Check out the links on the sidebar for more info!

Peace out, homie homes!
