Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Tonight, while reading in bed, I looked over at Scott.

Me: Do you perceive me as a happy person?
Scott: Yes, most of the time, why?
Me: Just thinking about how I come across to others.
Scott: Do you perceive yourself as happy?
Me: Most of the time. Except when I’m not, and then I’m REALLY not. I guess I just feel my emotions pretty intensely, don’t I?
Scott: Yeah, but that’s not a bad thing. That’s just how you are.

I suppose it is how I am. I suppose that’s why, after working with new corps members at Round Zero, I had a huge existential crisis and now I’ve determined that I can’t possibly give TFA up. Plus, it’s awesome to work with new corps members because it gives me a chance to talk about what I did well without having to kill myself doing it.

In completely unrelated news, I absolutely LOVE this video because it really shows what life is like where I’m from!
