things that brighten my day…
– going up to my room and finding two candies on my pillow. Happy Hippos are a very yummy way to say “thank you.”
– sitting in our tiny “coffee shop” and having my first german lesson. there were three students, one teacher, and two oberservers who both speak deutch. because one of the students was a boy, i now know how to say really important things like, “you have beautiful eyes.” i really appreciated wasting brain space on that one since i’ll use it so much.
– getting emails. two of them long. one of them short. from friends and family. now to write back. : )
