I realized today after looking at some of my friends blogpages, it occurred to me that it has been too long since my last blog. My intention for starting this was so that i could have everyone know about my adventures in Thailand. Since being back though i spent far more time in "real life" away from the constraints of the internet to share my stories and to journal in a hardcopy leather journal all my exciting tales.

Anyhow, im back and im gonna try harder to make words of wisdom show up more than once every few months.

I started work again full time this past week at 3 different colleges. I had a nice 3 week vacation of relaxation and very few interpreting assignments. Mostly i just hungout with friends and caught some zzzzzzzzzzzz...Monday was a good kick in the pants though, since i had to wake up before noon to get up and go to work. It was a tough week as was good to get back into the swing of things. I have 10 different classes i am interpreting this semester ranging from: pilates to business law to accounting to world geography etc. it will be the hardest work semester for me yet. Wed. and Thurs. of this week were by far the two hardest day i have ever had. Wed i had 4 classes back to back to interpret alone. Most often we have partners to work with where we can switch out every 20 mins to reduce fatigue and ability to have a functioning mind after we leave the class. Wed i arrived home from work only to go to bed around 930pm. I cant tell you the last time i actually went to bed before 10pm. Thursday my schedule was intense. I worked 8-5 and a night class 7-815. When i got home i crashed shortly after. My arms have been achy just because i have used them so much. wow! that was only the first week too. its gonna be a loooooong semester...

Other than that missions has been on my mind lately. Specifically, Thailand. and even more so than that, deaf there. I hope to go back there soon. My heart has really been for those there, deaf, hearing, buddhists, muslims, all. I feel God has been putting these thoughts and people on my heart so deeply that i cant help but think of nothing else except wanting the opportunity to go back very soon. Someday soon i will post a blog about my time with the deaf there and some more things about my experiences there and how i feel i have been led that direction. Until next time...dont forget to eat your vegetables! :)
