God really is so good to me. 2008 has been an amazing year so far. I'm getting a lot done, I'm going to Thailand, and I just found out today that I got the job I've been subbing for at Chinook. So I will get to stay with "my kids" until I leave for Thailand and I'll also get a $5 an hour pay increase, which is truley a blessing because I need to save as much money as possible before I leave since I don't know how my financial situation will be when I reach Thailand.
This last weekend I had a lot of fun. I went out with some girls from my Bible study and we were supposed to go out on my Leader Jessicas cousins little eletrical boat (so cute it's like the boats in the jungle cruise at Disneyland, but nicer) but she was having iphone issues and didn't get our call so we ended up just sitting in the boat on the dock, which ended up being fine. We had fun eating pizza and cookies and plying games. Then afterwards, when her cousin did call she invited us down to her house which is in this really cool area called Salmon Beach. You have to walk down like 100 steps to get to the houses which are all on stilts over the water. It used to be a shanty town in the early 20th century and then hippies moved in later on and now it's becoming the cool place to live. I loved Kristis (Jessicas cousin) house. It was small, but there was so much character, and what a view! We ate more cookies and played dread pirate while listening to music from Pirates of the CAribbean. It was amazing and so much fun, but then we had to walk up the stairs.... :)
oh, also the boat was called the "nowhere fast", how cute is that?
Time seems to be flying by, I can't beleive it's almost Easter! Before I know it I'll be flying around the world. Ok now I'm a little stressed :)
