im back....

one day i will do a count on how many "im back" posts i have done

so i got back yesterday morning...i was supposed to get back last night, but i was just so ready to go home that i decided to get on the saturday night redeye...i don't see why people travel to the west coast any other way....because on my way out there I was totally blown away about how frustrating it was (although I was sleep)

working 12-14 hours was alot but it was totally fun because i was working with youth...so work ing with youth is never really working...you know how much you can learn from a young person...they have the pulse on what is going on with them, the people we are really working for....how can you work to treat people if you don't know their issues...

in the end I was presented with a nice homemade vase one of the students from New Mexico made it its absolutely beautiful! i really enjoyed myself but once it was over i was ready to go...you know...

i came home and as soon as i landed he met me at home....it was nice....he has been working really hard and so have i so you know its been really hard to connect so I am thinking we will chill out, but for once he wanted to get out of the house so we went to the Baltimore Afram. it was my first time going and i really enjoyed it. The art, the people, the different music...black folks we have so much so many different levels and it was good to see a lot of those levels in one place...

that's me nothing else really going on except for me sleeping 12 hours...i'll reenter the working world on wednesday for two quick days....
