So far this month has been pretty interesting:
--I got a new hair color ("chocolate") and cut.
--I got to teach nutrition in an "alternative" high school.
--I went to Seattle to visit my old BYU friend Sarah
--I've been snowbound for 2 days.
My new.. kind of expensive.. hair.
I went to Seattle this weekend to visit my friend. We had a lot of fun, and luckily, the weather was good for the drive there and the drive back. I finally met Sarah's husband and stayed in her apartment that was almost robbed (not while I was there thank goodness). We went to a cool part of Seattle-Broadway--and ate at a Vietnamese restaurant. I had the soup "pho" (pronounced fuh, like f$%k, haha), which was totally delicious. We then cruised (hah barely.. it was FREEZING) the street and stopped at a dessert place called Dilettante. Again, wonderful. On Sunday, I went to church with her in Bellevue and met some interesting people there. We hung out with some of Sarah's husband's friends later that day, and I was able to taste some yummy Panamanian food. Monday morning, Sarah and I went to Pike Place Market and looked at some shops and stuff. To sum it up, I had a great time over the 3-day weekend.
And now.. Portland is all crazy filled with snow. My class was cancelled today, and I was sent home from my internship early yesterday. I went stir crazy today and had to brave the treacherous road conditions to leave the house. I went and saw one of the best movies EVER today--"Children of Men". I highly recommend it. Wow. Seriously. Go see it.
Ok so yeah.. that's my life.
