"We never change, do we? No, no. We never learn do we?"

There are things rattling around in my brain lately.

Loose change, maybe some tight change, lint, dust, thoughts of creamy delicious know, the usual.

But those things only really take up approximately 12.3%

about 62.5% is taken up by feelings of loneliness and detachment.

The rest of it (that would be...25.2%?) is toying with the idea of joining the Peace Corps after I do this.

No, that's a lie. I'm not toying with the idea because that suggests a certain amount of levity in the consideration. I am not taking this lightly. This is a serious decision. It would be a once in a lifetime experience, I would be doing my part to make the world better. There are so many benefits.

But then there is the fact that it is 26 months and that is intimidating. I would be so far away. But a different country! I don't know. I am just thinking carefully. And praying. I know I still have 8 months here in NH. I'm just thinking ahead.

Anyway, on to more interesting things. From my weekend with Megan in Rhode Island
Megan kissing her family llama The Terrorist.
Megan painted these stairs. They are amazing! I told her that she needs to paint MY basement stairs when I finally get a house.

This is the loft in Megans amazing house! This is where I slept. The whole house is hardwood floors and it's got a wonderful homey feel to it.
This is the beach at Rome Point where we went with Megan's friend Megan. It was a beautiful day!
Megan has a great laughing face!
Megan's chickens...they made funny clucking noises!
The goat. I can't remember her name. She is apparently really old.
The Terrorist and Willoughby her other family llama. They love pine needles!
The trail we took to Rome point.
A small inlet near Rome Point. Megan says its a great place to go swimming in the summer.
Megan's rock tower.
The Jamestown bridge in the distance.

A short summary of the trip. We drove there Friday night. Slept in Saturday morning. Went to Megan's friend Megan's house and met her two dogs. They were so cute and I wish that I had taken pictures of them besides the ones on my phone. We went to Rome point. I was going to go to The Mews with Megan and her other friend but remembered that they card you at the entrance and I still didn't have a drivers licence. I insisted that Megan still go. I spent the evening having some Sarah time in my loft guest room. It was nice. Sunday we went to Providence. I forgot my camera so there are no pictures. I plan on going there again so no worries. It was nice. I got to see Kasia (the only person I kept up with in RI from my past internship). Then we drove home. It was a nice weekend.

I am going to close now with a small bit of good news. I found my wallet! Well, actually it was found by the NH Peace Action at their barn. The first people I called when I first noticed it missing. It was between a couple of folding chairs in their folding chair rack. They called me and it is now in the mail. I hope to get it back soon. This was, of course, after I got a new Chase card for $15. Poo.

Sorry the last part of this post kind of blah. I run out of steam by the end.

Sorry that the quality of the pictures are not as good as Em's. I just don't have the patience for editing or the high quality camera.

Okay, before I get any more boring I am leaving... catch up on Lost.

I think you could handle the Peace Corps and I think it would be an amazing experience. Luckily, you *do* have time to think about it and don't have to make a decision right away.

I'm glad we talked yesterday. I hope it helped. And I hope you are *not* getting hammered with the snow storm I was reading about...

Take care :)

You're right- those stairs are AMAZING! I just love the whimsical variety each stair presents- your friend is indeed a talented artist...

I thought about the Peace Corps awhile ago. It remained a thought. I think you would do well if you chose to go. A girl in one of my Northwest Missouri State classes had actually served in the Peace Corps, and to read about her experiences was so fascinating. I know she really loved it. I think you would find meaningful fulfillment in it.

Pray about it. A lot. I know the Lord will help your head and your heart know how and where he would have you serve...

Love you!
