OK, last time I started to talk about two events that I was involved in a couple of weeks ago but instead I got sidetracked by the issue of everybody's nerves being on edge from fatigue. Now, I'd like to go back to talking about those two events. These events were based on things I … Continue reading Snowy Barbecue, Sunny Parade
All. Over. The place! Ugh! So annoying. Today, I planned to write about the snowy barbecue I attended a week ago Sunday and the holiday parade I marched in this past Tuesday. But I wasn't feeling it. At all. I started writing about it all but couldn't continue because my head just wasn't in that … Continue reading Fraying Tempers
I may have gotten asked out on a date. I'm not sure. For the past several months, I've been planning a conversation club. Remember, that's a themed open lesson for any member of the public who wants to come. Our school puts them on near the end of every month. Each conversation club is the … Continue reading Middle Earth Conversation
This is what I feel like I've been doing for weeks now, spiritually speaking. I think I know the source of the issue. A couple of weeks ago, a friend in America asked me about my churchgoing activities and what church here is like. I told her that there are lots of Russian Orthodox churches … Continue reading Gasping For Air
Shut my mouth and mind my business, or do what was right and speak up? It's not every day this type of opportunity comes up and I think I chose right this time around.
...is not at all what I said when I went dog sledding a week ago Sunday. Not once. In fact, it didn't even occur to me to say it. I did scream in terror quite a bit, though. I also laughed, whooped and silently prayed. OK, so let's rewind. A week or so before, it … Continue reading Mush!
It's with a heavy heart that I bid a solid farewell to winter. Sigh. I know, it's been on its way out for several weeks so I shouldn't be sad, but now it's really gone and there's no denying it. The changes are obvious; some came gradually and some have come all of a sudden. … Continue reading Weather Update No. 5
On the day of writing this post, I'm working from a café. As I'm writing, it's a few minutes before 9 am on my day off and I'm already sitting in my chosen cafe, where I've just collected my latte and chocolate éclair. Since I plan to spend the day here, I've secured a table towards … Continue reading A Walk In The Woods
It's been a while since I've updated you on the general goings on of my life, so that's what I'm going to talk about today. On any given day of the week, once I'm at work I'm fully focussed on my job. Once I step foot through the front door of my school, I'm either … Continue reading General Update
I love my life here, I really do. There are several reasons for this. First, it's not the fake life I used to live and that alone makes this a life to love. More importantly, though, I'm always learning or experiencing something new or different. For example, just last week on International Women's Day, I … Continue reading Visions & Dreams
