Its been quite a while since I have posted. I really havent felt like writing... at all. I am not sure even what to write now. Life has been alright lately. I enjoy my job and everyday seems to be a new challenge. Sometimes I seriously have no idea what to say to these kids when they share some off the wall opinion or depressing trauma. 

I definitely need to read more. I have found out I am more of a "let's fix it type of person" than a consoler. I feel like an idiot when I have nothing else to say but... Oh. I have been doing well in not taking my job home. I do get sad but I try to listen to music and that usually distracts me quickly. I also love to drive... lol I think I that is distracting in itself with the crazy drivers I have protect myself from. Old people on their cellphones in big Lincoln cars... grr!!  

I use to come home and share snippets of things to my sister but then I would feel overwhelmed because I felt like I can't possibly change anything... I don't live with the kids to remind them to take their meds or motivate them to do something productive. The best advice I got from my sister was to make each day the best for them. My role is to give them a couple of hours of positivity and safety they may not receive at home.

Today we made altered journals. I bought children's books from a second hand store and an artist came in and explained what to do with them and such. The kids started showing a lot of negative things they are into and I mean it's an idea of what is sort of going in there. I just hope in a few years they look back and laugh or rather cry about what they thought was cool but accept that actually it was incredibly detrimental...

We had the superintendente visit this week. It went well and my congregation is working well also. We have a lot of young people so it's good news that everything is running smoothly and lil drama. And the drama there is I hope in time is addressed... people who are such posers annoy me.

Wow... so I have pretty much abandoned this place. Well here goes the update. I came back from the Dominican Republic on June 16th. I had the best time I have ever had in DR. For one thing I didn't get sick like I usually do on long stays over there. I havent had so much fun since I was 9. I did a lot of preaching. I went to the Canoa resort. It had Taino art as decor. I love TAINO art a lot. I can't explain why. 

I stayed at Bethel for two nights. It was a very amazing experience. The brothers were so funny and down to earth. Most of them knew English already. My cousin has worked in Bethel in DR since its construction. He works with distributing the literature to Haiti and the country. It was very good to have spent time with him and his wife because prior to this visit, I really didn't know how to talk to my coz like dang he is a Bethelite... what do I say? But when it comes down to it... he is family and he is just as funny and cool as my other cousins. So finally I looked at him as a coz. 

I stayed with his mother who is a pioneer. I love my Tia a lot. She is so cute and helped me a lot. I plan to pioneer auxiliary next month. And I have to hand in my Regional Construction application. HOWEVER, the brother in charge of that had surgery so ... woopdeedoo... my congregation has only one elder. It's pretty sad. and the second is stuck in bed. Brothers need to step up cause it aint like there is a lack of brothers that are equipped...

I met lots of people and that is exactly what I wanted to do. Providence was stressing me out with the same dumb issues and the same people with their same insignificant problems. When I came back to the States I was more conscious on not wasting things like food and water and electricity. Those things are pretty limited to DR citizens cause of the government inadequate structure and lack of organization. 

Oh and the driving is bananas over there. they are animals pretty much... everything illegal here is normal over there... lol. 

I guess I just wanted to update a little. I am sleepy and I need to get up early. I started my new job on Monday and I am working where I interened last summer. So I am pretty happy... :)~ I went bowling today... holler!

Be back later,

I have less than a month away to graduate... yay! I had an amazing weekend. The talent show went very well. and I can not thank the sister enough to have put it together. I should definitely plan to give her some sort of gift. I absolutely enjoyed participating this year and the sweat and time was all well worth it.

I took some great pics of the makeup my sister had done on me... America's Next Top Model BABY! lol... Piano went pretty well for our first time. Iony didn't freak out like she thought she would but I sure DID for the beginning! lol ... i had to get my mindset right. Playing piano is just like dancing in front of people... dont notice or pay attention to anyone. Pretend you are by yourself and feel the music. So definitely a growing experience and all I could do is take the lesson with me until next year... :) i got so nervous though that I lost my appetite. Meat tasted extra greasy to me... ugh! i love good meat! so yea, I am so thankful for Iony too for having encouraged me to take piano a year ago... :)

2 MONTHS TILL GRADUATION!!!!!!!! I think I am gonna drop an art class. I can't concentrate for it. It's photoshop stuff and I just feel like I have no talent juice for it... instead of fun it's just stressful... :/ I have never had to drop a class but I think I should listen to my instinct... It's way toooo long, 6 to 9:45 pm.... boooo!!!! I dont think I need it... I am taking 5 classes, so yea, I can definitely be doing something else. I use to give Bible study on Tuesday nights but her mom took it away cause she was doing bad in school and just a slacker. But April I would really like to do auxiliar. So yea... I think I made up my mind... ooooooooh I dont know... I really wanted to learn Flash. ugggh!!!!!!!
