“‘I hope you don’t quit,’ he said. ‘I think we’re goin to need all of you we can get.'” — Cormac McCarthy, No Country for Old Men
Lately, my web traffic from France has been booming. I’m not sure why, but … Bonjour, French readers! Bienvenue!
I had a blast at my friend’s wedding in Tirana, Albania last weekend. Normally, I hate weddings, but this one was fun. PCVs know how to party. I participated in some circle dancing (very popular in Albanian culture!), but sometimes it got a little too hardcore for me. Check this out …
I was happy to spend the weekend traveling with my friends. 🙂 (Despite the fact that it was pouring rain in Tirana.)
Media consumption this week:
- No Country for Old Men is one of my all-time favorite movies, but I’d never read the book by Cormac McCarthy (so I did). The movie faithfully followed the book, so much so that when I was reading, the movie was playing in my head.
This is the 52nd book I’ve read this year, so I hit my goal of reading one book per week! (Not that I’m going to stop reading.)
Yesterday, I went to Rachel’s school. Christian, Tim, and I were judges for her school’s poetry recitation competition. (P.S. All three of them are volunteers.) (P.P.S. I am helping to organize the national poetry recitation competition next month.)
I was talking to my sister a few days ago and she mentioned Thanksgiving is next week. I was like, “whaaaaat?!” So soon?
With the holidays coming up, if you’d like to send me a holiday card *cough, cough* you can reach me here:

Hope you all have a great weekend and a great upcoming holiday week. Talk to you on Monday.
