Quick Updates

Lately I've been focusing on finishing up a career test for students
here in K-stan. It's been frustrating because I rely so much on my
co-workers. If this was in America, I could write it all myself, but
here my Russian is just awful. At least my Russian writing. So
EVERYTHING I do has to be proofread by my co-workers who are busy with
other projects. I think once we get it done though, it will be very
cool though. We almost have the Russian translation down. Next comes a
Kazakh translation and a web site.

Outside of that, I've been having a great few weeks. The holidays here
were awesome. On Sunday, we played frisbee in pouring rain then
banyaed. Then on Victory Day we watched the parade like last year, but
this year I was a little less cramped. I also had a couple trips to
Shymkent that were tons of fun.

In other news, you should check out this blog post by a fellow PCV
She not only entered a local beauty pageant with a salad making
contest, she WON it. I'm jealous, since in all my contest entries so
far here I've placed third, tied for first, and second. But she
outright won. Molodets, Katharine!
