I’ve been enjoying a very nice day of procrastinating a huge paper I have to write as soon as I get my butt to the library.   My boyfriend made me steak and eggs for breakfast, I made a delicious egg scrambler w/ avacado for lunch, and my geranium is going to bloom some flowers!  Plus, the sun came out after a crazy rain storm.  Will all the happiness be over as soon as I start this paper?  I’m about to find out…


And life is good…

Orthodox know how to fast, but they also sure know how to party!  After our lovely (and long–11:30pm-2am) Pascha service , we had quite the party to break the fast and celebrate our risen Lord.  Sausage, meatballs, cheese, ice cream, white russians, wine, vodka, cheesy mashed potatoes with bacon, pie, cheesecake, etc etc yum yum yum! It was an exciting time.  Unfortunately, I didn’t bring my camera, so no pics, but I did shoot a pic of my morning bacon and eggs (and avacado!), my favorite breakfast of all time.  We get our bacon, eggs, and milk (which I poured after shooting the pic) from an amish farm nearby (which I have pics of that I need to post), and it’s absolutely delish.

Well, before I get my week started, I will end this post with the paschal troparion that we proclaim over and over each year at Pascha:

Christ is risen from the dead,

Trampling down death by death,

And upon those in the tombs

Bestowing life!

Happy (belated) easter, everyone!  🙂

The way I eat gives pretty clear testament to what a white-Korean-Chinese I am.  Today’s lunch:

Fresh Mozz, basil, tomatoes and pesto on french bread and…

육개장 (Yut-geh-jang)

In other news, I’ve been using my point and shoot more again.  There’s just something so nice about being able to use a camera that you can carry in your pocket…

Camera: Canon Powershot SD780 IS

Made guac today w/ tomatoes from the garden!  Yum yum yum.

One of my favorite parts of the island were the coconuts.  One of our friends, Jeffery, a Bahamian local who worked for the cruise line, was able to climb up the coconut trees like a monkey and get them down!  It was so awesome to watch.  My bf, Rick, was so inspired, he tried to do it as well, but just ended up with a bunch of scratches on his arms. So instead, he threw every possible thing he could at the coconut–large rocks, shoes, canoe paddles, until finally we got it down by lassoing it with a rope.  That night we feasted on coconut–that Rick split open with a hammer!

 

Camera: Canon t2i, 24-70mm L

(Last 2 pics compliments of Frederick Dunn)

I GOT THE JOB!  Woke up to a call this morning (well, afternoon) from Eric at Big Brothers Big Sisters of America saying they wanted to hire me! Very exciting. I will be working with them through the Americorps VISTA program, so I guess that means I will officially be serving my country.  🙂

And of course, as you can probably assume, I’ve been playing around w/ my new camera a bit.  I was out running errands most of the day, so I didn’t get to take any pictures while it was nice out, but here are some evening shots from around the house.

Bag that my Korean grandmother bought me in Japan

My awesome $5 Walmart shoes

Haha, yes, that is a daily to do list in the background…and yes, I AM that nerdy.  To make matters even nerdier, it’s actually a productivity competition w/ my friend Amanda.

Feather pretty

Baked some wheat bread in the bread maker

Eating now and leaving traces of honey fingers on my keyboard

Cooked more Korean beef and radish soup tonight (again didn’t read the directions, oh well)–can you see the steam rising out of the pot?

Self-portrait!

Blind shots

In other news, today, Holly put up pics from our camera date a while back.  I thought it was interesting to see how our pictures differed from each other despite using the same cameras and lenses at the same time and in the same location.  You can make comparisons to my post here.  Perspective is incredible, and it’s crazy to think of all the bazillions of people in the world and how each one of them has their own unique perspective based on their personal experiences and genetic makeup.  Being human is surely an incredible thing.
