I so did not believe this stuff.
It might not have even been any crazier if I had been smoking something.
The end.



Sponser a child in need
worth it, without a doubt

This is the little girl I sponsor through World Vision. Her name is Mangamma and she lives in eastern India. I know it is a big responsibility to commit to sponsoring a child, but I knew when I got her most recent letter that $30 a month for 14 years (she was 4 when I started sponsoring her) is so worth it to hear that a little girl in a famously misogynist state loves going to school and wants to be a police officer someday. It’s so amazing to know that my part-time job here in upper-middle-class America is helping her get opportunities she might never have had otherwise, things that I’m so used to taking for granted. She is so beautiful.



Get kissed under the mistletoe

If there’s a possible way to make this experience cooler, I’ve gotta say that it’s even more awesome when said mistletoe is a clump that you harvested yourself and personally hung over the doors in your dorm. It’s all about the personal touch ;-)
