no cease to the ceasefire

The Ugandan ceasefire is going to expire.  Kony just hightailed it to the CAR, so does it really matter?

The last few weeks have been a blur and a frenzy of emotion and activity.  Here are some highlights:

  • I took a job, turning down some other options that I had on the table and several other great leads.
  • The job I took is in Dubai.
  • I remembered that I have a camera and that I have tons of pictures that I haven’t looked at in ages.
  • I’ve been reading the Baca Saga, Fabulous Females, and Riveted Pining.
  • Classes are busy and I have a lot of work to do, but it’s my last semester and I have a job.
  • Joseph Kony & company are in the Central African Republic.  That’s quite a hike from anyone I know in Uganda!
  • These two (1 & 2) got engaged!
  • I’ve been reading websites and books about Middle Eastern culture and Dubai.  It’s really fascinating, much more so than I had originally expected.

I just spent about half an hour getting my car out of its parking spot.  I had two other people who pitched in and two snow shovels and I still barely made it out.

no school!

Grove City just shut everything down for tomorrow.  No classes, no meetings, no nothing.  This is the first time in close to 20 years.

Who says all this snow is bad?

it keeps snowing

Everyone else in the area has snow days, colleges included.  Everyone that is, except Grove City College.  There’s really no reason since we all live on campus and walk to class, but it would be pretty sweet to have class canceled.

I also rediscovered John Denver yesterday.  I was listening to Herman’s Hermits on Napster and John Denver was one of the recommended artists.

And even in Pittsburgh doesn’t win the national championship this year, everyone still wants to see them play!
