Things I learned this weekend

  1. The students are actually very cool! I’ve finally begun to pair up names with faces and handwriting, and there are some pretty amazing people in the group.
  2. It amazing how some people open up when you’re walking down the road on a ‘rescue mission’ at 2am. I still feel kind of bad that the girl with the attitude problem finally opened up and I ran off – distracted by something shiny…
  3. Brandy and coke is never a good idea. Unless it is.
  4. Rocks move sometimes. Ow. yip, just as I lose the last batch of bruises…
  5. Getting into a car as not NEARLY as much fun as hanging on to the back of it as you go over bumps. Turning corners is infinitely more fun while hanging on to the side so you swing outwards…
  6. doing crazy out-of-car riding results in a weird sunburn and some entertaining bruises.
  7. Pia-pia-pia-NO!
  8. You had to be there.
  9. Identifying plants at 2am is possible, even after said brandy and coke!
  10. I have the weirdest sunburn EVER!

It is always best to avoid sunburn if at all possible! However, I have a very light complexion and struggle with sunburns a lot. Fortunately, I found an all-natural product called Regen. It took the pain out of the sunburn and stopped the blistering and peeling! Turns that burn into a great tan! It has saved many a vacation for my family and does not even sting if it gets into your eyes. You should see this: http://blog.oli-co.com/?p=561. You do not have to let sunburn get you down. By the way, if you are already blistering, use it anyway because it keeps your skin from itching! If you are not satisfied, they even give your money back!
