|the beach at Inhassoro (that would be five minutes from my house)|
Being home has been wonderful (besides the whole re-introduction to dairy thing . . . it's quite possible that my stomach hates me more here than it did in Mozambique), but I think when I head back I'll definitely be ready for year two and all it holds. While I feel like I have a lot more things going on outside of my PC activities this upcoming year - LSATs, law school applications, figuring out my life, etc - I am very excited to jump into the school year and actually (more or less) know what I'm doing. We got a chance to look at the theoretical school calendar for next year and it even looks like (due to our PC calendar and close-of-service dates) I'll be missing some if not all of the national exams. Which makes me VERY happy as that was the part of the year that created a lot of unnecessary stress and general frustration with the system.
Since I generally fail at uploading pictures, here are some various photos from my year in Inhassoro. My two New Year's Resolutions are to 1) take more pictures and 2) update my blog more frequently. Since I'll have to use my computer a lot more next year for LSAT/application stuff, I'm hoping that 2013 will be much more blog-filled than 2012.
Happy New Year! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivlgb0z1KcQ
