I love Osaka.
Me and Esther (L to R) at Osaka-jo-koen yesterday! It is getting warmer and sunnier with every day. There were hardly any blossoms, but the sunshine was enough. GOPYW (well, it was Wednesday when this was taken, does that count?)
Lessons from my 19 year old self.
This post is just a copy & paste from a blog I kept throughout college and high school. I found this entry which I wrote after spending a whole summer on a camp team (focused on advertising for my college and helping out church camps with activities, staffing, and whatever else)… There were 5 of us together for weeks on end, which made us learn a lot about each other and a lot about...
