Right now, I am living on a college campus in Denver with around 180 other 18-24 year olds. We are training here until mid March for our year of service. Here are some fun things I've gotten to do thusfar:
> Went to Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater
> Headed downtown, 16th Street Mall, etc.
> Read some of my poems at the Mercury Cafe's poetry reading
> Dungeons and Dragons
> Trained to drive a 15 passenger van
> Was issued uniforms
> Visited Lookout Mountain where Buffalo Bill is buried
> Making new friends
> Lots of public transit
This Friday I will be assigned to a team and job which I will have for the rest of the year. I cannot wait!

On February 11th, I boarded a plane at Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport with one checked bag, a backpack, and a pillow. This was the beginning of my new adventure. For the next ten months, I will be living out of a suitcase, traveling in a 15-passenger van, and working in several different communities around the United States. This is a year of service and simple living. I hope to learn and grow a lot and to experience many new things.
