Today was a little special, as we got to go sit in on classes that were related to our interested majors. I got up at 7 and met a friend I made last night and we went and got breakfast together, and then went to a music theory class that I was interested in. Afterwards, we met up with another friend, and went and had second breakfast before going to Convocation. It was really good, with a special message about helping the least of these. Afterwards, we went to lunch, and then I went to a guided tour of the music building. Afterwards, I took about a 15 minute break, before heading to my music audition, which would determine my eligibility for certain music scholarships and grants. The audition was very laid back, and they just asked me a bunch of theory and chord questions, and then asked me to play for awhile, and followed that up with some theology questions. Then they prayed with me before asking me to fill out some paperwork and sending me on my way. Afterwards, I went and got dinner, before going back to the music center for a concert, which was super interesting and was like a mix of worship music and classical orchestra and gospel music with a choir. Following the concert, I went back to the dorms to grab some stuff, and then went to a late night worship experience with some friends from 9-11pm. Along the way, I met a new friend who was from Fergus Falls. The worship night was super amazing, and then afterwards I went back to the dorm and fell asleep right away.
June 09, 2019 Spanish Church This morning I slept in more than I have any other day. Mom was the only one at the apartment when I woke up (Jana and Tevia have their own studio apartment) as Dad took a 3am - 8 shift in the hospital nursing. Mom has been on call the last two nights which has been rough for her, but she's fine I think. I got up and had a bite to eat, and then we all walked over to the on-campus church for the 8:30 service. It was all in Spanish, so even though we knew some of the songs, everything else was pretty confusing, as while I can pick up little bits, it's not enough to really understand the overall idea. It got over quite early, around 10:30, so we came back to the apartment and hung around. I played guitar for awhile, lost to Josh in a game of Scrabble, and then worked on my journal for awhile, and everyone else went down to the beach in the meantime. The days get to be quite long when you're not doing anything, so we had a family meeting during the…
June 01, 2019Leaving the Country We got up around 7:30 this morning and got ready to go before catching a shuttle to the airport around 8. When we got to the airport, we first had to go find our bag that they had lost the night before, then go check-in, and then check our bag, all before going through the busy security in Miami. There was a drug dog there, and I got told almost 5 times not to pet it, even though I wasn't even planning on petting it. We got through TSA, and then we went and found our gate. We sat there for only a few minutes before boarding started, and then it was a very easy flight to Roatan Honduras. We landed there and then got off the plane and went through customs. After we got all checked out, they let us officially enter the country where we got tickets for our next flight, and went through security again. After we got through security, we sat in the airport for awhile, where we had lunch (I had nachos) and then boarded a smaller 18 passenger plane for the m…
June 10, 2019 Boring Monday I didn't really feel like getting up as early this morning, so ended up staying in bed until around 7:15. It was really quite nice to stay in bed, even if I wasn't really sleeping at all. After I got up, I had some water to make sure I was hydrated, and then went outside and finished up some of the painting from Friday on the building across the parking lot, just doing some trim. I got done with that around 8:30, so then I just spent some quality time working on projects that I haven't had time to do lately (gotta love the fact that all my computers sync with my phone so I can work anywhere) and then went and cleaned the apartment. Dad came back from working slightly after I finished cleaning, and so we had lunch together, and then Mom came over from the hospital as well and stayed and talked until around 1. Once they both left, I did some more cleaning, boiled some eggs, cleaned the apartment kitchen again, worked on more stuff on my phone, pra…
