I’m pretty tired of writing, sorry to say. Recent posts and writing for my projects have me at a loss for coherent strings of ideas.
I do want to say thanks for all the IMs, emails, and phone calls. I do promise not to tweet at y’all until a decent hour, say, 7 a.m. This morning’s tweet though, I have to say, was especially productive! Thanks!
I had dinner tonight with two interns at Never Again who deserve a loud shout-out: Mike and Steph are two energetic, bright, and knowledgeable people who are looking for internships/jobs/graduate programs with TAships in the field of human rights. Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you see anything interesting, and I’ll pass it on.
We had dinner at an Italian restaurant before they set off on a two-week excursion to Tanzania hiking Kilimanjaro and then a safari! What a fantastic opportunity! Dinner was tasty: thin-crust pizza. Mine had a different cheese on each quarter, including some local cheeses. So goooooooooood. I have been staying at the offices til 7 p.m. then picking up dinner in the form of a small bag of peanuts and some baked goods on my way home. So a big dinner was an extra treat.
Before you start emailing me reminding me to eat enough calories, please know that I eat breakfast at the inn—coffee so strong it’s almost opaque, two rolls with butter and jam, and a banana—and then eat lunch at the office, where a cook prepares Rwandan food every day. We eat lunch between 1 and 3, so dinner really is an afterthought. So yes, I’m eating enough.
