(Whew! This will be brief because it's 12:26 a.m., I haven't slept in two days and I need to be up by 5:30 a.m.)
So the 11 hour flight went well. It was one of those big planes with 10 seats in a row and I had an aisle seat and the two seats next to me were empty. Hello space! I watched "Boyhood" and the main character reminds me of two students, one I have this year and one that I had three years ago. $1,000 to the person who can guess both students! (JK). The I watched "The Hundred Foot Journey" which was about Indian Food and French food and Love, three wonderful parts of life. When given the option between chicken or pasta, I opted for pasta because I reasoned that it probably had less preservatives. Though, I did try to sleep, it was a failed attempt. Too much on my mind. When I de-boarded the plane in Frankfurt to catch my connecting flight to Warsaw I was released at Gate Z 69 and had to make to Gate A 38 in a very short amount of time, so I booked it! Only to arrive at Gate A 28 where a sign was posted that the new gate was A 25. Run, Michelle, run!! I make it! The thirst flight was only 1 hr and 20 min so I used the time to go over the documents I received for the program.
A woman named Francesca met me at the airport and took me to the hotel. After some time, I met with Claudia who caught me up on the parts of the training that I missed. Then we headed to the control room for a staff meeting. There, we went over the plan and each of our roles for the program. At various points I am in charge of teachers, survivors, students, and anything else that needs to get done any time day or night.
When the meeting was over, the administration staff and the regional consultants went to a Polish restaurant that served amazing food and drinks.. That is all I can share about the evening festivities, but I will say, the room was filled with a great deal of laughter and love.
(Sorry, that this was more informational, than entertaining. I will do better tomorrow!) Until then...

Sorry about the typos, I was typing fast and a tad exhausted. :)
I just watched Boyhood! It's my favorite so far of the Oscar-contenders (although I still haven't seen most of them). I'm curious...what does Polish food taste like?! Is it good?!?!
We miss you!!
Boyhood is up there for me as well, along with American Sniper, but I still haven't seen The Imitation Game.
Well, I definitely like peirogis, their bacon, their fish (especially herring!) I didn't try the duck yet.
I miss you too but I talk about you guys every day even when people don't want to hear about you. :)
I got The Hundred Foot Journey book and have yet to read it! I'm going to India this summer for 18 days for a missions trip, so my Grandma bought it for me saying "it's a must before you go!"
I can't wait to read it :D
I JUST GOT BACK FROM AMERICAN SNIPER and my mind is buzzing haha hence the late hour. It was incredible and definitely made you think and feel. Wonder is inevitable!
Can't wait to hear more about your experience mama clark!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
