Back from Russia and Writing Letters!
Let me know if you’re not on the list and have been expecting a letter from me! Anyone else who is interested in my penpal project should check out this page. :)
Russia in t-17 hrs!
Talk is cheap, so he gets by,
Cheap to charm a lady
Cheap to chat some guy.
A business not too shady
That was what he liked,
Pasting people into new lives.
A craft somewhat sticky
But he was looking for a good wife
And a good groom,
Two who’d make room
For each other in this world
Predisposed toward self-interest.
A happiness to him over many.
This job, it never cost him a penny.
That Escalated Quickly
I’ve been really, really sick this past month - like, I missed 4-5 days of school - but I’m alive and recovering! For all of my penpals who are awaiting letters, I’m terribly sorry that you have had to wait this long. I thought I would get started with them again after I’d finished my college applications, and then I got sick, and it’s just now that I can really say I feel better.
BUT DON’T YOU WORRY, MY FRIENDS. I have a surprise. After all my midterms are over by Wednesday this week, I will be rushing to the airport to get on a plane to… Russia! Yes, really. My robotics team was invited to a competition there, and I never really expected the trip to actually happen, but here we are, just three days away. I cannot contain my excitement! I hope to send you all some memories from there, whether they are through this blog or personally through my very late letters.
I love you all! See you later on the other side of the hemisphere.
I don’t want my heart anymore so I’m going to trade it in for anything.
Everything is so happy right now even though it kinda isn’t.
