I wrote a lot today. I’m not one for giving gifts. I just can’t bring myself to buy things–even if it is for other people. So I write personal letters. I ended up writing four this morning. I only have three left to write. I’m going to do my best to write them tonight; I like the idea of resting during Christmas Eve and Christmas. It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas.
I’m watching the Broncos kick butt right now. This will be their 10th win in a row. I am going to miss watching them when I am in Morocco. I mean, the game is fun. But it’s a great way to spend time with my father. I will definitely miss that. Well, 22 days to go until I leave. I’m trying to cross at least three items off my to-do list today. Today it went from 41 to 37. I need to keep it up.
I learned the first three letter of the Arabic Alphabet yesterday. It’s going to be difficult, but I think I can pull it off. I need a good way to fill my time over the next 29 days. Spending a good deal of time learning a new language sounds like the best way to occupy myself. Now I just need a good place to study. My coffee place seems to have decided to start making shitty coffee….which kind of throws me for a loop.
For those of you who do not know, I am a Broncos fan. I have lived my entire life in Northern Colorado. This team has always been mine. It has been an incredible season. Even though I am more of a baseball fan, this is hard not to get excited about this season. I mean, nine wins in a row. Come on! I’m starting to think about how far they can go….and I hate that I won’t be in the country for the conference championships or the Superbowl. I will have to find a way to watch them with fellow Peace Corps volunteers.
Today’s writing is actually my year in review. I do this every year. Same 40 questions. Feel free to steal the questions and fill it out for yourself. It’s a great way to reflect.
