What Is It That You Do?

On the phone, my brother told me,

It sounds like your always on vacation

Ok.  Fair enough.  I had just finished telling him about my birthday weekend extravaganza.  I celebrated with a trip to the sal pans and a birthday braii (bbq) with some peace corps friends and lots of local friends.

But then I was looking through my blog just now, and i noticed that I fill my posts with adventures, pictures and good times and I hardly talk about what I do from day to day. everyday.

This is one of the hardest questions to answer:

‘What do you do everyday?’

It is a difficult question to answer because it’s made up of a lot of little things, but I would like to try to answer the question.   I’m going to introduce a series to my blog (have you noticed how series are all the rage on the blogospere?  And I am a sucker for blog trends).  It’s going to be called What I Do All Day.

So stay tuned for What I Do All Day Part 1: The Art of Visiting

One thought on “What Is It That You Do?

  1. Sydney – I saw an article on your PC experience in the recent BYU College of FHSS magazine. I want to congratulate you on making the bold move to serve in the Peace Corps after graduating from BYU. Not many people do and I wish more would. I’m a BYU alum (1986, BA, PolSci & Phil; 1991, MA, Internatl Rel) and I’m now the Peace Corps Country Director in Costa Rica (and also a Bishop in the church here). I’ve lived and worked throughout the world (Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America & Caribbean) since graduating from BYU and was always bumping into and working with PCVs, so I decided to join the agency and got assigned to Costa Rica. Church members have so much to offer as PCVs, I just wish more would take the leap. Yes, it can be challenging being far from a church, but our family has done it, too, living three years in Djibouti where there was no church, and I feel we were strengthened by the experience. I hope your last year is a great one in Botswana, a country where I have also worked and a people I love. Again, thank you for your service and keep up the great work. – Steve
