i know that no one reads my posts, just looks at the pictures, but i figured i'd update anyway. despite the lack of images.
i flew to atlanta on tuesday for my VISTA training and got back to raleigh last night. it was a pretty good time. most of the stuff wasn't applicable to my job, so i spent a lot of time doodling, daydreaming, and attempting to jump paper frogs into my tablemates' water glasses. but i learned a lot about the organization, met good people, had fun, ate delicious catered food, and got a taste of atlanta's nightlife - and it was all on the government's dime. (well, all except the nightlife.)
it's good to be home, though. i missed this house.

I read these things. I live vicariously through you.
Oh yes, thank you for facilitating the chance meeting of Mallory and I.
It has worked nicely so far.

My parents met while working as VISTAs.
But I cannot answer what exact it is. Similar to the Peace Corps?

Hey Emily. I read your blog. (when I remember to check it. :-)
Also, I miss you. I'm glad you are having fun, but I miss you.
And it finally snowed. And you are missing it.
Did I mention I miss you?
