this is where I am
I genuinely dislike not having internet at my apartment. I have to use the school's computer which has sticky keys and microsoft office 2003. So the long blog I wrote about my experiences thus far... incompatible with this computer. I brought it along on a thumb drive complete with photos, but now realize that I need to go back to my computer and save the document as a 97-03 compatible file... stupid windows...

ANYWAY, Today I am going to the salt lake. I'll take more pics and upload them soon!

so for now... here are a few pics of me at my place. (Don't laugh, it's really ghetto)

ALSO- the captions on the photos are all out of order... I have no idea why that happened. But just run with it, play "match the caption to the correct photo"

not quite sure why really

You can't see in this picture but the stairs are JACKED. Missing pieces, uneven, slanted... dangerous.

you're sexy, I'm sexy, we are what makes the world go round ...(round US!)
I'm glad you commented ;-) Don't go stealing my man! Otherwise I'll be forced to coerce Jeff into a surreal realtionship consisting of many gym visits and me petting his face while feeding him bottles of muscle milk and making him do tricks for protein snacks.

If China is a chicken, you are in the heart
Hi! Loved the pictures. It looks! I can't see the comments - so don't know who else you have on your blog. Are the other teachers also American? How are they? Do they live in the same building? Did you figure out what that awful bug is?????

The Blog
KC is right, this blogsite is! The bathroom looks very utilitarian. Do you have towels?? I like that the refrigerator is red. Is Dillon coming to visit you for Christmas or do you think you'll be done by then??

Hey, the place looks good! How's the food? Do the students end up teaching you more than you teach them? It looks like a great experience - make good memories! China's been on my list to visit/work since college, but haven't made it there yet - hey, but there's tomorrow!! I'll ask the boss. Enjoy and stay in touch. tj

Reminds me a bit of some of the flats I looked at in England for Jennifer. Well, you sure will appreciate your place so much more once you get back. I posted a comment on one of your blogs thinking it was the start and it wasn´t. Oh well. Hope that you are feeling better and enjoying your time there. Take care.
