I’m Not Giving This Post a Title.
Here I am (AGAIN) looking at the clock and trying to figure out what the hell I’m going to write for class. Turns out, I don’t care. Why, you ask? Because yesterday, I received notice from the U.S. Department of State that I was accepted to be a Legislative Fellow to NEPAL AND BANGLADESH. Yes, that’s right. I’m leaving next month for a 15 day trip to a place I’ve never thought I could go.
Years ago, I was obsessed with Nepal and more specifically, Tibet. The political issues in Tibet moved and hurt me. At the time, I was looking for spiritual grounding and was given the opportunity to pray (for hours) with a group of Tibetan monks. It was moving and incredible. To this day when my heart is turmoil, I return to that space created by the songs the monks sang in their gold and orangey red robes. Which, by the way, you can purchase right online here. Who knew?
Another miracle from this week was that I went to the eye doctor and they had to reduce my prescription for my contacts. I see much better! Who knew that was even possible?! A trip to the dentist also occurred this week, where I have successfully maintained my whole, that’s right, whole life without cavities. I got my hair cut and it looks fabulous and exactly the same. Lastly, I think I’m officially in love with Bruno Mars, which is humiliating. Even though, I can’t help loving his funky beats and wonderful melodies that recess me back into a world where my favorite outfit was comprised of red stripped shorts, tank top, and blue running shoes:
Sorry, for this lame post. I wanted to take a moment to tell you about my exciting trip to Nepal/Bangladesh because HOLY SHIT! I’M GOING TO NEPAL AND BANGLADESH! Pictures will be up and coming I’m sure. OH! Some folks have asked me about the program that accepted me. Mine is specific to my profession, but here’s a link to other exchanges that are offered: http://www.worldlearning.org/17671.cfm DO IT!
The last discovery of the week that I’d like to share with you which is as beautiful and mind numbing as writing is a series of films from Sigur Ros. I love this Icelandic band. They are a band from ICELAND? COME ON! Take some time to explore their film collaborations and music. You may want to parse it out over a few days or you may become a complete zombie. I particularly love Film #3 because I enjoy male nudity, specifically in the form of Shia Labeouf:
