How goes it?
Thanks for reminding me about blogging today, Amma Beff.
HEY THERE SEXIES.
How goes it?
Thanks for reminding me about blogging today, Amma Beff.
So hur's the haps.
This week, on Tuesday, I have a second meeting with Phil from WHM. This is to talk about England, apprenticeships, long-term missions, and whatever. So, on Wednesday, I am having a clearness committee with Monica, Jessica, Hannah, and Kristen. Basically, they will ask me questions (only questions) to help me think/ decide how I feel about different options for my future to see what I really want to do with my life.
So please be praying for these two very important events that will decide my future! Haha, not really, but do pray! I have a lot of things on the table: England, Honduras, Haiti, [Vidcon], etc. So I have to think about all of these things, and I would like for each of you to facebook message me with any tidbits of advice you may have. Yes, this is your MISSION. I am commanding you to do this. So, think/pray about it a minute, and tell me what you think my gifts are, where you see me, advice, and also questions (as part of my virtual clearness committee). I guess I can't force you guys to do this, but I would really appreciate if each of you could take a moment to support me in this way.
So yeah, please do it.
I did a lot of fun things this week, including going to dinosaur world. Check out my pictures, if you haven't yet!
I love you guys.
Please please please do what I ask of you! And do it on facebook, so I'll see it more easily and in a consolidated way. I might even post my answers on here, if you guys would like to continue to be a part of this process.
I'm about to post a bunch of pictures and details about adventures on my blogger, so go check it out! That being said, I am so so sorry I haven't blogged on here in so long. I hope you all understand that it really is purely accidental. For goodness sake though, why don't you people message me while it is still Sunday??? You only ever scold me after Sunday has passed. I have so much going on that it's really hard to remember to blog! Anyway, I really am truly sorry!
Gee, I have a lot of things to say, but I'm planning on saying them all on my other blog.
Well, other things that I would maybe say I wouldn't want to be shared with the whole world at all.
Anyhow, now that I realize that anyone can read this, I have little motivation to write anything on here th
Sorry folks! I'm sure while I was at the poker room on Sunday, you were all at home crying over lack of blog. Wahhhh. Couple that with the fact that I have hardly blogged on blogspot as of late, and you guys are probably on the verge of suicidal!
Anyhow, I'm having a lot of trouble adventuring in this house. There isn't anything to do, and I don't know anyone in this whole city. I guess that if I were in a good mood not knowing anyone would be a grand adventure to make friends. However, I'm not in a good mood. The fact that I am only going to be here for a few more days is also exceedingly unmotivating in terms of getting involved somewhere or finding some friends. I am really sick of having nothing to do though. I can only stare at my computer or TV for so long, and I am WAY past that point. I'm going crazy! Everyone in this house is so stressed out all the time, and they yell at me for things that are silly. Like when I went to Disney World and my phone got a teensy bit wet because my whole purse was soaked through. My mom yelled and yelled at me because my phone wouldn't work the next day. I explained to her that it had only gotten a little bit wet because I tried really hard to keep it dry. She didn't cut me any slack at all! She was ruthlessly saying I've destroyed more phones than anyone else has even had, and that is not even TRUE. One of my old phones got broken because my mom dropped it in the sink herself. There were various other accidents and a few phones that I just got bored of and happened to have an upgrade available. Still, she insisted that I am careless and she would never buy me a phone again because I don't take care of them, etc etc. When we took the phone to the store and found that indeed there was no water damage in my phone, there was not even a little apology at all! Just snide comments about how I am so lucky that the phone was still under the 30 day warranty (I only had it for less than a week). Anyway, it's drama like that all the time, and it just drives me crazy. I can't wait to be back at school with nice people who never call me a piece of s*** or say, "F*** you!" With nice people who love me and understand me a great deal more than anyone in this house does.
I'm having some tummy troubles in America. I'm sure you don't need to know that, but I thought I would let you know.
Well, it's hard getting used to a lot of things here - like flushing the toilet every time I pee, wearing a seatbelt, or a/c that makes me feel freezing cold. All of those things are okay though, and I am just glad that I will be seeing many friendl
Hello from Ayiti. It's over.
It's so over.
It's exceedingly over.
I'll be leaving this house for America in 24 hours.
There was a team here last week that I really liked. I had to say goodbye to them AND to the Kelley's yesterday.
Also we went swimming, and I got a lot of green in my hair.
But anyway, it's been a crazy three months. I can't believe I'm going to be in America tomorrow.... or that I'll be at Disney World on wednesday.
Oh me oh my.
I'm already feeling american'd out. I can't believe I only have two weeks left! And we have been having too many American days anyway. Saturday we went to the Caribbean market (the really nice grocery store) and Fior Di Latte (the fancy ice cream place). You can find some fun pictures of me by creeping on this blog = http://karissa-eachstepbyfaith.blogspot.com/?spref=fb
Umm, hmm. I'm just really very tired. I don't have anything interesting to tell you. I hope we can all spend some time together on my way back to Asbury (although it won't be all of us - because Jill).
I'm on week 10. And I'll be back in murica three weeks from tomorrow.
I had a big cry fest a few nights ago because I got in a big fight with MC. I don't really feel like going into the details. But I'm having a really rough culture shock-y week (see my other blog) so I just couldn't take the crap that MC gives out daily. So she was typing away on her computer while the kids were right there having their prayer time. It was exceedingly disrespectful. So I told her right then and there that it was so rude. I was discrete, and it's not like the kids speak english. Anyway, SHE brought it up at debrief because she said basically that I'm a terrible person for saying something to her about her complete disrespect for all other humans.
Anyway, that's my life. The constant frustrations and obstacles that I face in order to be in the country that I love.
Hello from watching Aladdin with my big happy family! Somehow no one who is mean is here! Only Brad, Shannon, and Lena (The Kelleys), Karissa and Emily (the two nice interns) and Katelyn and Cameron (Some kids who are here for this month!)
So we are all very, very happy! Cameron and I taught ourselves how to make popcorn on the stove! So fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
<That picture sums up my life!
So, for this one moment, I shall enjoy everything completely. In fact, this whole day has been WONDERFUL! Love love love it! It's Brad and Shannon's anniversary, but I haven't figured out what to do for them quite yet! Any ideas?
I don't know what else to tell you except that dealing with these kids is so difficult. We don't know how we are going to find a home for them. There is no handbook, and no one with more experience to give advice. It's just me and Karissa and Emily struggling to do our best for them =[
MC and Samantha hate me. They do whatever they can to beat me down every moment.
I want to marry the British guy I talked about in my blog.
My mom lives in Florida now.
I really want to go to the Urbana conference, but it's kind of expensive. Urbana.org
I want some ice cream.
I am excited about my classes for next semester. I'm not excited about buying books. Eww.
I haven't had enough alone time with all these people here. Now I share my little room with three other people. I don't mind - it's just that right now there is nowhere to go to be alone.
We didn't have anything for the team to do, so we made up some project. They didn't even use our surveys, which officially makes that one week a total waste. Blergh.
Randy is here, and he hasn't made an effort to get to know any of us interns. (Randy is the prez of WWV.)
If I could adopt one, it'd be Elemnia. Her cousin used to live at Tree of Life with her, but she has gone home. So far, I don't think she has any parents or anyone who will come for her as Tree of Life is closing. We will find a place with her, but I wish the place was with me. I want her. I would do anything to take her home with me. My little girl, my little monkey face, my sweet sweet girl. She sings like a little angel. She giggles sweeter than any sound I've ever heard. Everything about her is my favorite thing ever.
I'm confused. Why does it seem like everyone is answering questions this week? Well, no one asked me any questions, so here it goes.
How much does today suck?
Because people are jerks, but it's okay. Check my otro blog for more details.
If you could go home right now, would you?
No, but I'd consider it. I can't leave the kids though. It's just these dumb americans that suck.
Not on a Haitian, but I totally think that a doctor that just left today was super awesome. (Young, he just graduated med school). He was adorable and asian and from new york and loves Jesus.
What are you going to do now?
Probably sulk, listen to Taylor Swift, hide from the other interns, and take a nap.
Sorry to be so boring and depressing. By the time Sunday rolls around, I'm pretty sick of these jerks. I hope you guys will go check out my other blog, especially how I almost died on Tuesday.
Each of us is assigned a certain day of the week to blog.
