A Series of Things

24 Jan

At the end of this Friday, just as I’m climbing into my nice soft bed in the capitol, I had to think back over the day to decide what I’m most glad for. I’ve decided I’ve officially bored the topic of buses and miscommunications to death, and while it really does constitute much of my life, there are certainly many other things that are infinitely more amazing.

I thought out loud, and though I felt little of importance stuck out to me, my perfect partner reminded me of a series of small but momentous moments, and they all were all together outstanding.  Here they are, team. What I’m most glad for on this Friday:

  • Following directions from a team of helpful PCVs to a new building in Baku without getting lost once (hollah!)
  • Seeing a friend and catching up after her voyage to Europe
  • Delicious chicken salad from the market
  • Toblerone!  Delicious, delicious Toblerone devoured during a productive meeting this evening
  • Hot showers and new shampoo
  • Sleeping in a bed that is a real live bed with actual support and fluffy, heavenly pillows

And on that note, I am most glad for sleep after this long day.

I will sleep no more but arise, You oceans that have been calm within me! how I feel you, fathomless, stirring, preparing unprecedented waves and storms.    – Walt Whitman
