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!


  1. Nice Blog - Thanks, Sam. The pictures are awesome! I think a concert at that amphitheatre would be amazing. Good luck on Friday. I hope you get the job you want and a wonderful team to work with.
