I hit the ground running this trip and I'm so excited about that. My very first full day here I had to go to the DMV to renew my driver's license. Bureaucracy and an awful photo in one stop. Hooray! Seriously though--after dealing with government offices in Africa, this was an absolute breeze. Truth be told--I still hate my photo. On the bright side--if I ever have need of a mug shot, my photos will totally match.
I also spontaneously booked a trip to Nashville to attend a conference. I had hoped to get a trip in to Nashville this year but wasn't sure how it would all work. Then this conference opportunity opened up and I jumped on it. I'll be learning more about how to run a non-profit. Exciting stuff! Don't you wish you could attend with me? I'm looking forward to all the new stuff I'll learn though.
