Mexico Site Groups January 30, 2005
At around 9 something, my brother and I went to our missions sunday message. We were kinda late, and got in near the end of worship. Afterwards, joe and I got some food at fluffy’s doughnuts and we went to eugene’s special sunday school message on missions. Near the end, I left a bit early for sac.
After getting to sac, I went to golden 1, to withdraw some money, but the atm kept telling me to put a lesser amount, even after I tried to withdraw 20, its minimum. I got a total of 40 bucks from the machine, 10 less than the 50 we needed to contribute to our mexico trip today. Travis lent 10 bucks, so I’ll have to remember to pay him back.
I signed a check to be deposited “Leonardo Da Vinci” today.
During our mexico training meeting, we got split into two site groups, which go to different sites during the whole week all day. I got split off from a lot of buds, but I’ll stay happy with whatever happens. God has his plans and reasons for everything eh? I get to lead games and rec on monday. I don’t know what i’ll do yet.
I also finished my support letter and my nametag today, but we found that the nametag wouldn’t be laminated.
I need to run out really fast to help my mom take something to someone. I’ll finish this when I get back.
I just helped my mom drop off some food to a church lady who just gave birth. They’re taking turns making meals for her and her family. Why would anyone want to eat my moms cooking?
Just kidding. Mom, if you read this, I’m just joking.
After the meeting, on the way home I got lost. I was kinda listening to the music and singing along, but I paid more attention to driving than concentrating on where I was trying to go. I started going the opposite direction, towards arden. While I was turning off in the wrong direction, I realized my mistake, and I was considering looking for a way to take my car over the median before it split off permanently. I changed my mind after I realized my car would probably hit the curb hard at an angle and flip over or something. I went for a ways, and turned off on a ghetto small street, where I travelled around for a bit till I found the freeway entrance.
There was a traffic jam on the way back, so I had a long time to be braindead. I took a sideroad, with basically no cars and no cops, and on the way I saw a crop duster (is that what they’re called? the things that spray nice smelling chemicals all over you). I pulled over, and took lots of pictures of it as it circled overhead, and then I went home.

I spent a long time coloring in the nametag. It was orignally black and white, but I guess everyone thinks that’s boring, so I colored them in and added some grass. Maybe i’ll add in a soldier or a rabbit or something, then clouds, sky, and a sun. Then a moon. Or I could make one side day and one side night. That would be pretty cool.
Tonight I went to play tennis with Jose at around 9:30. I came up with an awesome outfit that’s sure to stun both my opponents and my teammates. I think I’m going to wear it to the first day of tryouts, just to blow everyone away. How powerful can one tennis player get? I think I just about pushed it to the limits.
What happened was, I was walking out, when I noticed this blue arm sleeve things on the ground. I thought they were pretty nifty, so I asked my mom what they were, and that I was taking them. I put them on, and a headband and wrist guard. Yup.
We played a set, joseph beat me, and we went to get josephs book from the locker, but it wasn’t there. End of day. Homework time.
