  • Eastern Rinok Training, Football, and One Goal Achieved

    November has flown by at a rapid pace. It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is a quick week away. It seems like ages ago that I was departing Pre-Service Training with promises of “we’ll see each other at Thanksgiving!” (Luckily, I’ve already seen all of my clustermates at least once).

    What have been I up to lately?

    Eastern Rinok & Chernigov Training:

  • A Little Bit of Gratitude

    Many of the blogs I follow have been discussing gratitude recently, and the importance of gratitude in cultivating a happy life. Inspired by their example, here is a list of things that have recently made me thankful.

    - Finding 5 more peanut butter M&M’s at the bottom of the bag, when I thought it was empty. I enjoyed every M&M that came out of that bag, but those last five were extra special.

    - Not having to clean the hallways, bathroom, or kitchen.  One of the perks of living in a student dorm that has a cleaning staff. (Sidenote – I live in a special guest wing, so there are only 3 of us currently living in the suite right now).
