I'm Not Betting On The Afterlife

So my first two weeks in Rome have been rather wonderful. I have been some pretty awesome places already, and I know more are to come shortly. The people here are surprisingly delightful; there are some who are a little beyond hope, in terms of what I'm looking for, but c'est la vie. Most of the people here are interested in getting out into the city, both to see the history and to get shitfaced, which is me in a nutshell. I just made a flickr account today so that I can put up all the pictures I'm taking, and, believe me, it's a shit ton. I'm so stoked about this program, it's ridiculous. The workload is a little uneven, as in most of our work is due Monday through Wednesday, but I have no time management skills so it's a bit of a problem. I'm hoping to fix that, if I can, maybe, but we all know how I am.

On a non-abroad related note, I took Manda's career thinger and my top ten matches are - professor, clergy, occupational therapist, ESL teacher, foreign language teacher, corporate trainer, computer trainer, gerontologist, motivational speaker, and art/music therapist. Some of them are a little questionable, but two of these items qualify as exactly what I want to do with my life.

Uh, you should totally be a motivational speaker.

Yeah, wouldn't I just make the best motivational speaker? I'm too lazy to motivate myself, let alone other people.

Let's be honest... You probably wouldn't even show up to speak.

Nah, she'd just be really late.

Because she got sucked into the awesome cinematic event that is Fantastic Four.

It was one time! Once! I'm frequently late without the Fantastic Four being involved.

Yeah but if it is involved it's so much better and less excusable.

I have no idea what a gerontologist is.

Christa showed me your party pictures on Facebook, but she is not always around! Share your flickr account!

A gerontologist cares for old people. I'm not really sure how that snaked its way onto my career list.

On the other front, I think I'll clean up my pictures a bit, maybe get rid of that red eye that seems to be in all my pictures, and then get a-posting. I'll not disappoint.

Dir Kirst,
Plz 2 combine Clergy and Corporate Trainer.
Wearing a collar and wielding a laser pointer? y/p.

My heart swells with love for you each time I click on a blurry photo of part of your face and someone else's and people in the background, for these are the symbolic tips of the Kirsten Crooks Fun In Rome Index iceberg.

Seriously, though, I miss you hard.

Love,
Lady Katherine

p.s. I was serious about the career options.

I miss you too! How's the penthouse? How's living with Shami? I am having fun in Rome, but I feel like poo today. I slept for 13 hours, though, so that's a bonus.

I think I will be a corporate training clergyman. I think it would be great!
