Long weekend

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

It’s a bittersweet long weekend, because next week my parents leave and I’ll be living miles from family for the first time ever!
I got my first paycheck, which is a relief because it is hard to move to a different country when you don’t have any pay for 2 months. I’m thankful that my needs […]

I guess this is why shipping was free:

At last, nothing to say!

Monday, August 25th, 2008

I’m a little relieved and thankful that I really don’t have very much to report right now. Just a few things left to get settled, and it’s all waiting on something coming in the mail. Since it hasn’t yet, I’ve pushed it out of my mind for now. I spent the weekend being a tourist […]

So I finally got my social security number, and as a result spent most of Friday getting the information to the places that needed it.

New kitchen

Monday, August 11th, 2008

So I’ve been trying to get used to cooking in my new kitchen with a different electric stove (home was flat plate, this is coil) and different utensils. Ingredients too are different here.
I made a yummy tri-tip steak dish the other day. Dry rub of cumin, paprika, black pepper, sugar, salt. Fried on pan with […]

Massive update

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

I’ve been suffering through a week of internet withdrawal. Hence the hiatus in posting.
I really need a vacation. Yes yes, I just had an entire month “off”, but you have to understand the circumstances. I spent a year cramming for a huge exam. Then I spent a month doing very busy ward work. Immediately afterwards, […]
