It’s May already, you guys. I feel like the cherry blossoms just came out and now they are making cherry snow on the ground and it is starting to feel like summer (erm, sort of). Time is moving so fast. Before you know it I will be in Africa and then it will be my birthday and then it is practically Christmas. I sound like an old lady don’t I? When you are a kid time moves so slowly. I’m seven and THREE QUARTERS! It is NEVER going to be summer! Then you get old and it’s all, ”Gee Willikers! Time flies! Kids these days grow up so fast! Get off my lawn!”
So the playoffs started. I don’t even remember what it feels like to care about playoff hockey anymore. The Oilers are so bad you have to laugh about it so you don’t cry. We’ll see what happens with the draft/offseason/MacT. I’m starting to turn skeptical and cynical and it’s the worst. I love you
Team Smurf Oilers, but I kind of hate you sometimes too.

A few of my nearest and dearest dude friends left for vacation in Nicaragua yesterday. I gave them strict instructions that they were not allowed to talk to any drug lords. They totally took matching backpacks with them, how adorable is that? In a weird way, hearing them plan this vacation made Africa feel even more real to me. In less than two months I will be getting on an airplane too.
Speaking of Africa! We are having a team training weekend this week. We’re going to start putting together our curriculum for the kid’s camp and the last of our team fundraising efforts. I have one month left until my fundraising deadline and still have about halfway to go. If you are considering giving towards this trip, please do! I can still use the help. To those of you who have already given, thank you! I appreciate it more than you even know.
And lastly, one of my roommates is moving out at the end of the month. We are very sad to see her go and life at our house will be so different without her. This means Raur and I need to find someone new to join our happy house. We are a very clean and friendly pair and I think we’d be delightful to live with (I may be biased). If you or someone you know is looking for a homey place for June 1st, email me.
