So last Wednesday was our going away party at Westfair (a local dive that is never busy, but has great drinks). The last four years in Bakersfield have been suprisingly interesting, and I have met some incredible people; however, everybody is now venturing in new directions, and it's about damn time. Recently Bakersfield was acknowledged in the newspaper for being "# 1 in Smog!" in the whole U.S....fabulous. I've read that the cities in S. Korea have horrible air, but I guess it will be just like home 😊
Stephanie and Staci, my burnette devil-angels (more devil than angel) are moving to the beautiful serenity of California's National Park. In the fall, they will be laying in sun filled, sandy beaches of Cali. Good luck ladies!!
Even though my brother, Kevin, and I didn't get along growing up, we have grown extremely close in the last few years. I will miss him the most. He has taught me to relax a little and have a good time. This mostly entailed me getting way too drunk and regretting it with monster hanger over the next day. As you can see in the picture, he has an infatuation for boobs...so I
Going Away Party
Beth, Me, Steph, John "The Ultimate Bartender", Katie, Kevin, and Staci....notice how my brother reaches for Staci's boob
think he's a pretty normal guy. Kev, good luck with your new house and job in the midwest!!
As for me, I will be leaving behind a remarkable bunch of 8th graders. This last year of teaching has been incredible. The last field trip we went on was to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. The whole museum was unbelievable, especially the Presidential plane. Let's just say that between a personal chef, bunk beds (which I guess only the first lady uses), and a dozen other imenities (including a big red button that the Pres could push to activate nuclear weapons) the Presidents are hooked up....and I was excited by TVs and headphones on my last flight.
I finally got all my muy importante documents off to the school I will be working for in Gwangju. Tomorrow I am selling all of my personal things. Mostly I am saving pics, clothes, and important documents. Although I am nervous about selling everything, it is also very liberating. I guess I better save some money this year, because I won't have a damn thing when I get back...hmm...so South Korea it is in two weeks. Woohoo!
