Sorry I’m Lazy!

January 29, 2010

I’ve been bad at keeping you guys updated.  Between the interwebz not working and just being plain lazy, i’ve left you guys hanging for about a week, now.  Shame.  I’ve been busy, though, and man does it feel good to be busy. The first few days of classes were near impossible as I would ask […]

First week in a nutshell

January 22, 2010

It’s felt boring, but here are some of the highlights from the week: Making the Class Schedule. It seemed a daunting task, but myself, ‘M’e Mpho and ‘M’e Palesa were able to get it done.  I have the heaviest load of 5 classes, making 28 sessions per week: B1&B2 Maths(7×2), B1&B2 Science(6×2), and C1 Life […]

My First Day?

January 18, 2010

5:30:  Wake up.  It’s school day!  YAY! 5:35:  It’s cold.  Opt to stay under blankets a little longer. 5:45:  Force myself out of bed.  Start boiling water. 6:00:  Mix cold and hot water.  Take a bath in a bucket. 6:15:  Bath was a bad choice.  I feel like a popsicle.  Put on a sweater. 6:20:  […]

School soon…and finding the good in doing nothing.

January 16, 2010

Boredom still reigns supreme.  I’ve turned into an old man, sitting quietly, listening to my shortwave radio, grinning mischievously to no one as thoughts drift in and out of my head just as the clouds roll through the sky above me.  I can’t wait for school to start. Well, I can’t wait for school to […]

…A look back.

January 14, 2010

The last few days have been painfully slow.  With the exception of my hike on Tuesday, I’ve been useless.  Yesterday the highlight of my day was helping to bring Tarsh’s luggage up her mountain.  Today my highlight was going to be reading a book down by the water, but it threatened to rain so I […]

My New Friend

January 10, 2010

So.  Let me tell you, the last week for me has been burning with the theme: Nice guys finish last.  It came up again and again and again for me, to the point where I may have been just about as discouraged as I’d been since coming to Lesotho. So yeah, a down week, but […]

Wait…Where Am I?

January 10, 2010

I made it out to site today!  Man, it’s rough, guys.  I’m sitting here in my rondavel, weathering a beatiful highlands thunderstorm, drinking some piping hot tea by the light of a candle, and…perusing the interwebs.   Ach.  Life is hard. Actually it’s hilarious.  My living conditions are not at all what I imagined, nor […]

I’m a PCV tomorrow!

January 6, 2010

Today is the group’s last day as Peace Corps trainees. Swearing in is tomorrow, and we leave for our sites on Sunday. We’ve been busy shopping for bedsheets, groceries, and other items for our homes, not really having the time to stop and think about what this really means. Of course it’s a transition period […]

More bloggy!

January 3, 2010

Things have really started to slow down with training since christmas…our sessions are kind of a joke, now.  I don’t really feel like i’m learning much.  Here i town…again, trying to stay busy.  It’s nice to have a lot more free time, but on the other hand it’s giving me a bit of an idle […]

What up guys?  Our 2:00 session today got cancelled, so a bunch of us came into town instead.  Still no ipod, i’m going to file a report with the PC security officer, although i’m not sure how much good that can do.  I don’t have long to write, just wanted to let you know I […]
