But as soon as classes were back in session, so was I. I can’t believe how quickly the school year has slipped through my fingers. I am trying to plan out the rest of the year and realize that I only have about 7 weeks of class time left.
This month has been the start of some really cool things. To start out the month, my Peace Corps group, Honduras 7, received our invitation to our close of service (COS) conference. I know that it’s just an invitation, but it represents that our time is almost up and soon we’ll be moving on to other things that don’t involve Honduras and Peace Corps. It is also the start of form season for me, which means endless government paperwork and nights filled typing out documents proving that I did actually do something the past 2 years. But I won’t complain because it means that my service is almost over come November or December! Of course the big news would be that I am going home for a sweet 2 weeks starting August 16th and that brings such a smile to my face. And there are the little things that have made me happy lately, like hugs from Brayan, boston cream pie at Weekend’s in Santa Rosa, calls to the U.S. only costing 1.95 lempiras from my cell phone, bananas 8 for 1 lempira and free rides into Santa Rosa.
So I’m spreading that happiness to you in hopes that it is contagious!
