Just a day…

Today was a great day! The lesson I taught yesterday went really well, I felt good about our language lesson, and I genuinely enjoyed the session on teaching writing. My partner’s lesson on reading really well and an adorable little girl walked me part of the way home, jabbering along in Sepedi. I worked on typing up some charts and tables for my language group and I got a lot done, so I was feeling accomplished and relaxed.

Flash forward to about ten minutes ago: I was sitting in my bedroom (in South Africa) working on a project and I just popped a flash drive into my computer to use it. I opened it up and found all of the scanned in pictures from my cousin’s memorial slide show. I know he would be so proud, but I miss him extra badly right now.

My personal experience in Peace Corps so far has been that it is a wonderful, exhilarating, scary, exhausting emotional roller coaster.

Each day is a gift, so don’t waste it.
