First off, I'd like to make note of that fact that it took me a decently long amount of time to come up with such magnificent a witticism for the title of this post, so if we could all take a few minutes to appreciate that it would be awesome.
And then I'll just jump right in. The last week has been messy. Not going to lie. I've had sketchy amounts of sleep for the last few nights but I think it's maybe going to get better soon. So fingers crossed.
1. for those of you wondering (perhaps none) - yes. the PSAT does exist in Oman. and yes. if you are an American high school junior it is very possible for you to subject yourself to the pain of taking it
2. THERE'S A TRIP THIS WEEKEND WHAT AMIDEAST PLANNED A TRIP
I realize the above notes are probably rather vague and written in a decidedly sleep-deprived manner, so I'll elaborate a bit on each of the points in turn. First off, the PSAT. Ginya, Linden and I all skipped school today and headed over to the American International School of Muscat (colloquially and affectionately known to those who can remember the acronym as TAISM) for testing. Following testing we spent several hours pensively staring at the walls of the "library" at AMIDEAST and jamming out to obscure music. Translation: a good time was had by all.
As for the second note... The first of our AMIDEAST planned trips is happening this weekend. The six of us (and Katy, one of the directors at the office) are heading for two days to the nearby Nizwa and Jabel Shams (which means mountain of the sun), and where we will be camping out (like in tourist tents) Friday night. And we are all very excited.
So that's all the news I can think of right now. If you have anything you would like to me to talk about specifically send me an email through the contact form and I'll see what I can do.
