Thoughts from the Homefront

November was a relatively quiet month for me. I spent the entire month grounded, not 10,000 feet up in the air bouncing from hotel to hotel. It was wonderful! I honestly thought I was going to go stir crazy after the first week, but I was pleasantly surprised by my ability to stay happily in one location. It was also refreshing and exciting to sleep in my own bed and to be able to catch up with friends in person!

Wrap Up Blog from Ghana

Maybe it’s a generational thing, but there is an overwhelming majority of friends and people my age who have this burning desire to change the world. The flipside to this, however, is the overwhelming majority of the general population who thinks that people like that are overly ambitious and set unrealistic goals. But, the truth is, our team of five – Jean Driscoll, Marissa Siebel, Jennifer Scott, Tom Cameron and myself, went to Ghana and changed the world. Even more so than that, the world changed us.

I'm back from hot hot hot southern FL from an amazing weekend of competition. The summary of results is as follows:

US Nationals: Pre-Race

We arrived in FL on Wednesday, had some adventures getting from the airport to the hotel, but eventually we all made it. We sweet talked the receptionist to let us into our hotel room even though our whole party had not arrived yet. I logged online, co-taught the last class session for the term. And then I shifted gears to get ready for the races.

En Route to PHX

En Route to Phoenix

Never a dull moment in the life of Anjali! I am sitting here on the plane, somehow functioning after the past 2 days of very little sleep and two-a-day practices. Remember that paper? I am happy to say that just 3 minutes before boarding the plane I emailed it off to one of my co-workers who graciously agreed to help me out and print it to deliver the hardcopy to my professor. Cars are known for going 0 to 60mph in say 3.9 seconds, this girl went from 0 to 24 pages in less than 24 hours!!

Baltimore

Baltimore

I wish I could tell you that Baltimore has also been an incredible event, but it has not been. The school visits themselves have been wonderful. The kids are always so very excited to meet me, as am I. I’m continually impressed by the questions that I get and I can really tell which kids are thinking things through and applying what I talk about to their own lives. It is a rewarding experience getting to meet these kids.
