Uganda Days 70-72: Two Weeks Left

Just a quick update, today. There hasn’t been much going on over the past three days, and to be honest, I probably wouldn’t even be writing a post at all except to reassure everyone that I am still alive and well, if a little bored. There was nothing noteworthy about Sunday, just my usual, trying to get stuff done while sitting around drinking coffee. Yesterday, Monday, was even less exciting, since I basically just came to work and then went home. Today has been much the same. I slept past my alarm this morning, which might be a testament either to the ants or to my waning interest in work, I’m not sure which one. Actually, scratch that, I think it might have had something to do with the animal(s) having a romp on my roof last night. Whatever it was, at one point I thought it was going to come straight through my ceiling. Thankfully it didn’t.

I got home from work a little while ago and now I’m just waiting for my food to arrive. Last week, the last time I ordered on this app, the driver actually found me without any phone calls. He called me when he arrived and I started giving him directions, out of habit, before I realized he was already parked outside my gate. It's the first time this has happened—if I had to guess, I’d say it was probably because he followed the directions I put in the app. You know, the same ones I always put. They’re not that complicated, and if any of the other drivers actually did what the directions said it would take them straight to my door, but apparently no one ever does that. Except this guy! He actually told me that I can request him next time, which I was really excited about, but I’ve unsurprisingly forgotten his name. So we’ll see how it goes tonight.

 What else? Not a whole lot. Except that in two weeks, I will be on a plane, just a few hours from home. Which his kind of crazy. Exciting, too, though at this point I think I’m just stressed about all the things I need to do before I leave. It’s going to take me most of these two weeks to do my OCI applications for next summer (non-law people, read: jobs at big firms), which are due shortly after I get back, so essentially I need them done by the time I leave. Because I am definitely not going to have any time in the week that I’m back. Too many people to see, places to go, things to do.

And that’s as much as I can pull from three rather underwhelming days—thanks for reading!
