I AM alive and still in American Samoa...

I cannot believe so much time has passed since I last posted an update. Weeks are flying by, and weekends are gone in the blink of an eye. I've been extremely busy recently due to working with the after-school program - I don't get home before 5:30 most days (and I start my day at school before 7). Saturdays have been consumed with kirikiti games (Samoan-style cricket), and Sundays have been filled with lesson planning and just collapsing from sheer exhaustion.

The past few months have seen a tsunami (small, but present), a trip to Samoa (a different country... 30 minute plane ride means a world of difference!), incredible donations of books (without the time to properly thank everyone - it's coming, I promise), test preparation (4th graders take 2 batteries of tests... one down, one to go), job-searching (trying to figure out my next move... have a few ideas, but nothing is solid yet), and much more... I will try my best to get a real blog post out during one of the upcoming 3-day weekends!


  1. I plan to get one box of miscellaneous off to you today and then another next week. Any personal requests? New flip flops, any special treats? Have you ever seen the Showtime series "Dexter"? I can send you off a few seasons. You will be hooked. How is the experience compared to Korea, besides teaching with less?

  2. What a great article and I will be certainly taking a look at this site so thanks for sharing.It may what I've looking for.
