So, I’ve been busy this summer, for more reasons that I’d care to enumerate. However, there are a few very positive things among them that deserve a mention:
- I had my tenure at work extended not once, but twice. This means I’ll be working for the government (and finding some time to write about it, I hope) until the end of December.
- I’ve expanded my horizons for my upcoming adventure beyond Peru, by applying to a program run by Habitat for Humanity International in Costa Rica. More on that later– and as part of this application, I have a couple of interviews in Spanish, so if you know any native Spanish speakers willing to practice with an out-of-practice gringo a couple of times a week, let me know.
Also, my inability to write over the summer has inspired me to make a few changes to the way I post. The great discourses on work and life that had been among the reasons I started this blog are still languishing as drafts in my WordPress dashboard, though they’re still percolating, I promise. However, its time for a change in format. In the model of friends like Jon (who manages to keep a blog despite being a 1L in law school) I’m aiming to write more, shorter posts with links to things that are interesting, relevant, or just funny. And I’ll stop this navelgazing starting… now.
