Attention Span

I’ve discovered that there is an inverse relationship between the number of days I spend on a computer and the number of seconds my attention span lasts.

Now that it’s the second-to-last day, I’d like to apologize to Bridget for only being able to focus on editing the video in 30-second increments. 

Also, sorry that this blog will be jumpy, because I literally can’t finish a thought before spinning around in my computer chair and forgetting what I was about to write.

Our class has now digressed into a frenzy of playing Cool Runnings clips and covers of rap songs on the projector screen. 

I’m amazed that the 17 of us are still functioning together as a team, without any arguments. I hope I’m not speaking too soon.


I’m finishing this post at home, since I obviously could not do so in Hitchcock 205 today.

What I need to blog about is the weird way that trips like the one we took to Uganda show up in your life after you return.

I’m in charge of a group of four and five-year-olds for Vacation Bible School at my church…the theme is African Safari. The first day, the cheesy video starring mediocre-at-best 13 year olds showcased a group of 4 kids going on a safari to find the “Ugandan kob,” which just happens to be one of the animals we spotted on our game drive.

I tried my best to explain that yes, I slept under a mosquito net just like the ones the kids’ offerings were going to buy, and that yes, I do mind when you call me a “tribe leader”.

And I was worried about forgetting my experiences there. I feel like there will always be little reminders, regardless if they’re as blatant as the Vacation Bible School coincidence.
