ARGHH! I'm tzping on a European kezboard, and the y and the z are in reverse places...causes me quite a bit of trauma, since I am actuallz a touch tzpist. I have to keep going back to correct it. Are z'all able to figure out these sentences?
Anyways, back to looking at the keys before I type...
I am on a steady diet of croissants, espresso, cheese, coldcuts, second-hand cigarette smoke and 5 hours of sleep per night. Needless to say, I am not feeling too good, but there is not much I can do to change the situation.
I have decided that feet are not designed to be in shoes for 16 hours a day...no matter how comfortable the shoes are. They need time to breathe, and to reconnect with the ground. This suffocating in leather all day is NO GOOD.
On a more positive note, we had the TOYP Awards Ceremony tonight, which honours 10 outstanding young people from around the world. One woman talked about travelling to Thailand to help an AIDS patient for Doctors without Borders. They had to crawl through raw sewage filled with rats and cockroaches to get to her. She had been abandoned by her family because of the social stigma attached to HIV in those countries. She weighed 60 pounds and had open sores all over her body. How do you turn your back on a fellow human being, let alone a family member? I felt pretty weepy and helpless listening to that, but also really inspired, and like I wanted to contribute more to the world. I am definitely looking into opportunities when I get back to Toronto. We are SO fortunate in Canada. We OWE it to the rest of the world to contribute.
I STILL haven't had time to have a Starbucks.
