Waiting, in more ways than one.
Life has been very interesting since coming back from Germany. Seeing my family after almost a year was amazing, I love them so much and I can’t believe how much they’ve changed in the time I was gone. The second youngest boy is almost six feet tall and has a deeper voice than I do and he constantly steals my tennis shoes because we now wear the same size…this is something I am...

Aaaand I'm the worst blogger ever.
Yeah, so I’m dreadful at updating this thing but I’ll try to be better in the future. Right now I’ve got about three more weeks in the lecture phase of the DTS and then I’m leaving for outreach in early December. My team is going to South Eastern Europe and we don’t have a set plan of what the outreach is going to look like. We do know that photography and the rest of...
The Next Step
“In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” Proverbs 16:9 Life is confusing. It is for everyone, Christian or non-Christian, man, woman, young and old. If someone tells you that they have everything figured out or that they are in any way in control of their life, then they are either deluded or a liar. That being said, there are moments in my life when...
Instant Coffee and the Vodka Shepherd.
I’m a pretty adventurous person and I knew from a very early age that I wanted to travel the world and see different cultures but it never crossed my mind that I would be living in the middle of nowhere Ukraine.When I was eight or nine years old, I was dead-set on learning Japanese or Chinese even though all I had to learn from was a tiny pocket dictionary that my cousin Emilie gave me. Ten...
I finally finished up my TEFL course in Prague and a few days later, I was joined from Romania by my friend, Kori Bowen. We hung out in Prague for two days and then went to Hernnhutt, Germany again to visit our friend Laken. I only got to stay for two days but it was wonderful to be in the German countryside with two good friends from Abilene,TX! After the chaos of the TEFL course, it was...
Well, I’m just about to finish my third week of my TEFL course and I think it’s safe to say that I’ve never been this exhausted in my entire life. I’ve been sick this week but other than that, I think that my classes and lessons have been going pretty well. I plan on getting at least ten hours of sleep tonight, so I hope that I’m better by tomorrow. Here are a few...
I’m sorry for not writing a post sooner but this week has been incredibly busy and a bit of a blur. I finally made it to Prague at 9p.m. on the 8th. I lugged my giant roller suitcase and two bags out of the airport, onto the metro, onto a tram and up (what seemed at the time) the steepest hill in all of Prague. I finally made it to my apartment and I have never wanted sleep so badly in my...
Polo match? I think yes.
Yesterday I went to a polo match on Governor’s Island. I had never heard of the place before but it was kind of like Shutter Island from the movie, minus the crazy people and Leonardo DiCaprio. This doesn’t mean that it was completely devoid of celebrities though because the match was hosted by Hugh Jackman and Marc Jacobs and was called Veuve Cliquot, very fancy indeed. We took a...
Hello, New York. It's so nice to finally meet you.
I’ve wanted to go to New York for a long time and I’m finally here! I’ve always wanted to visit but I didn’t think that I would like it near as much as I do. Yes it’s noisy, dirty and a bit much to take in but it’s incredibly exciting and beautiful at the same time. I’m staying with my friend Masha in a little apartment on the east side. My room is right...
So, here goes something.
Well, I’m giving the blogging thing another shot. I kept up with one pretty regularly when I was studying in Spain and I just stopped when I got back to Abilene. I guess I thought that my regular life was too boring to write about and that may very well be the case but I miss writing either way. So, here goes. I rode my bike to work today and I immediately regretted the decision when I...
