Yeah so it's been about 8 months since my last confession. Sorry, I don't like writing so I'm not really sure why I started this blog. Everytime I come to Ourosogui I say I'm going to update it but I never remember my password and I'm too lazy to say I forgot it... so 8 months passed by and I started to feel a little guilty. I would like to say that a lot of stuff has happened, but then I'd be a liar and Allah doesn't like liars. Some guys with the embassy are going to build a new classroom with an office, a new roof to replace the one that blew off of the other classroom, and a wall for the school in my village. I just finished a mudstove tourney and that was fun and exhausting. It consisted of riding around in an air-conditioned truck for four days in which the driver refused to put the air conditioning on, and then going to 16 villages to build stoves that are made of mud and horse crap. I also have a mosquito net distribution in the beginning of February. After that I get to go to Dakar and participate in the softball tournament which is basically just an excuse to get hammered and see all the volunteers in country. I wish I could say that I will update this more often, but it looks like I'm going to be kind of busy in the next few months, but I'll try. I don't think anyone actually reads this anyway so if you do, let me know and maybe I'll make more of an effort to keep up on it. I just read my previous posts and I sounded so positive and now that I've been here for almost a year my post sounds a little disenfranchised, but I swear I'm still happy here sometimes. For all of you in America, eat lots of cheese and Mexican food for me and I'll see you in June. Oh yeah, I'm coming home in June for a month. Alright I can't write anymore, I'm tired.
