RinR: highlights and hijackings


Oh man. This week. Highlights include: Rick Rolling Leana at her last chapel - I called her up on the mic, asking staff to come so we could maybe lay a hand on her and pray for her new journey,... Continue Reading →

RinR: Living the Dream


Highlights of the week: Today I asked cute munchkin Julia to count from 1-10 for me. She paused and then said "MondayTuesdayWednesdayThursday." Also, I was helping a student who, God bless his heart, has been exposed to four languages and has a host of... Continue Reading →

RinR: Week Without Walls


If I were to change careers (something I think all teachers consider every Monday morning), at the top of the list would be "Karaoke DJ." Beekeeper, baby goat cuddler, and sloth handler are also on the list. But karaoke is something... Continue Reading →

RinR: This week’s dream


Highlights of the week: every once in a while I do something that makes me proud of me and shows growth. I like to then say "hashtag adult." I have discovered you don't actually want to put "adult" as a hashtag... Continue Reading →

RinR: twas Perutiful, but it’s good to be home.


That first Qtip after coming back from a long week away, am I right? My leg kicked like a dog getting a belly rub. I'm back from the four-day conference in Lima. My American curriculum international Christian school in Brazil... Continue Reading →

RinR: And for my 600th blog post, I try to adult.


I'm trying to pack for Peru. But if you've ever traveled with me, you know my packing is like a ten hour mess, no matter what. I start by getting distracted by making a playlist for my iPod, end up... Continue Reading →

RinR: in recent events and teacher diaries


There I am, limbs loose and happy, proud of myself for going to the gym when I really didn't want to. I step into the square foot that is my bathroom, strip down, remove glasses, reach to throw something in... Continue Reading →

RinR: Living the Dream and Waiting for my Meet-Cute


As a birthday treat for Leana, we spent this past weekend (thanks to her parents, a friend, and the manager!) at the JW Marriot on Copacabana beach. As she’s leaving me AGAIN this year (she left our old teaching job... Continue Reading →

RinR: Working it Out and Lactose Intolerance
