Young Red American
so, i am finally back from the void. the last three weeks in brevity: i went back home to iowa for a week, i had a birthday, saw a bunch of cool kids(including mary nesbit, who i assumed had been eaten by a pack of hungry wolves based on the fact that i hadn't seen her in some time), and went to ohio to meet rachel. rachel, who was sick, and i spent a bunch of time camping and sleeping on aarons hard wood floors. i petted the cutest one-fourth of a dog on earth, i went to a german-american festival. rachel left. i spent a week reading, writing, going to the art museum, and playing munckin with aaron, thom, and company. now, i am at kenyon with rachel and my position with bvs really begins on monday. ok, that out of the way.|
man, i must admit that i miss school. that is not to say a miss beloit so much, though i do miss the byron, ester, that indian girl....what's her name?... (j/k) and chad. happy freaking birthday chad! but definitly i feel like i want to get back to academia next year. reading and writing without other people to work with can make you a little out of touch and insane. i miss having books and having scheduled things that involve me learning. but, i can see myself doing some serious good in my position and there is definetly a need: i was given a list today of about 25 churches who want to me to come help out with youth or other things. my official food budget for the year is ten dollars a week for food, which seems not so good, but there is a kitchen at this camp i can raid. in addition, i get to live in this cabin which is called white oak. i imagine a white log cabin in which case i think i shall take to wearing white cowboy boots and a large, white, foam cowboy hat.
holy crap, i miss buddy, the way he would eat virtually anything, the way he would lick my bed at night and rest all day for another wild night of licking. best wishes to everyone back in the great state of iowa, i would gladly bear your young, whoever you are.
