First day of the SIT Grad Program orientation was completed today, by me, and it was great! Except for the fact that it was literally 95 degrees and I didn't want to make friends because I was so sweaty and nasty, as it turns out, I did end up making some friends because it turns out everyone here is extremely nice.
Life has been mostly the same up until now, I'm sensing a big change in my life. I'm mostly excited about taking Kiswahili courses again!! So now its indisputable, I'm a huge dork and SIT is more than the place for me.
On to the EXCITING NEWS!!!!!!!!!
I will be re-venturing back to my Washingtonian roots (by DC standards, I lived there a long time, as its such a transitive city) and I can't wait to reconnect with my lovely friends.
AKA showing DC what a REAL hurricane is like (so back down, Earl, I got this). Pictures and some great stories involving trannies and frozen margaritas are sure to follow, stay tuned!
As for my Vermonterlusting, I have had some run-ins with the "diverse locals"
My favorites include so far: "Man who walks around outside the Catholic Church on Main Street wearing Caution tape and holding a sign that says 'Vote No to say No!"
Voting for what, I still haven't figured out.
Second favorite goes to the couple having the really loud and awkward conversation about whether or not they should "dumpster dump this baby, I can't keep off the crack for another 2 weeks"
I'm holding out for the nude people though, I have a feeling they don't come out until the temperature drops below 50 degrees.
