Moberly, MO...I can't believe it's true.
I've spent the last 25 years of my life in The Land of Enchantment. I love New Mexico, don't get me wrong, but this is awesome. Missouri is so far a really nice place. It's something new. The scenery is different, the people are different, everything is different. I'm not saying New Mexico is bad (although I know of a lot of people who do), I'm just saying I needed this out-of-state living experience. I enjoy learning about this new area. I watch the local news, I read the local news paper, I observe...it's really a blast.
So far the weather here has been chilli, but not as cold as I expected. I expected it to be fridgid. It's still fairly cold... but not as cold as Santa Fe. Santa Fe is expected to drop to a low of 9 degrees farenheit tomorrow night with a 50% chance of hippies. Moberly is hovering around the freezing mark. **yawn**
Moberly is cool, it's refreshing to experience something new. I like not knowing where I am. I like not knowing what to expect from people, it makes life a little bit more fun. Also, I'm picking up a new hobby...typing letters! It's so fun. I inherited a typewriter from my grandpa and I've written two letters so far, one to my parents and one to Joe. I want to write letters to all of my frinds.
I want to write a letter to New Mexico telling her that I miss her and to stay enchanting. Also, not to worry about all of the haters who tell her that she's "entraping".
p.s. Abover are some picures of Columbia, MO (where I work), Moberly, MO (where I live) and some New Mexico shots.
I'm in my classroom drinking my coffee... so, so good coffee. I had a couple of things on my mind. I often think about religion and phil...
Anyone can make a podcast. So that's what we're doing.
We recorded a podcast with a ton of interruptions. We had fun doing it though. Have a listen!
Lindsey and I had a discussion on kids, marriage, and our trip to Oregon.
