I didn’t realize how much wifi controls my world until it was…gone. Due to some mysterious apartment wiring I’ve been making due the past year with a friend’s connection password and now this option ceases to exist. Now my apartment is a “bleak” world of rented and downloaded movies (I literally cannot watch Notting Hill, The American President or Star is Born again for at least another few months) books, assorted dusty musical instruments (minus a newly purchased ukulele) and a battery-operated radio sans batteries. I know, I know, problems in the first world are indeed horrific and renting movies from Itunes has been a godsend. College wise (which exists in the land of Wifi) the fall semester is proving a bit boring and jumbled in comparison to the quick-paced summer session (12 papers, 4 books in 6 weeks) . To put it in perspective I feel like a f-ing rockstar in my Hebrew class…a feeling I’d never thought I’d experience.
In other news; I was selected to participate in the latest Fuel for Truth boot camp. FFT is an Israel advocacy group that teaches the facts about what is happening in the Middle East. Tonight is the first session so I’ll of course keep you all posted as to what I learn and how it is presented.
