The District

Tomorrow at 4:45am I'm headed off to DC with a group to attend International Justice Mission's Global Prayer Gathering. 

I went last year as part of my preparation for being part of the Acts Project and enjoyed it so much that I decided to do it again this year. I also needed one more CLF credit for my minor and an event for Political Seminar for my major, and this is working to fulfill both of them. 

There have been a few interesting developments since my last post... being randomly invited to Easter Dinner at the house of one of my former professors' parents, getting invited by her father to go to a Rhea County Council meeting, not going because it had been rescheduled for the day before and he didn't realize it, running five miles barefoot in the dark... but I really am feeling too tired to go into any detail about it right now. 4:00am will be here fast. 

Also, I decided not to take my Mac to DC, so unless something amazing enough happens (or I get board enough) for me to feel like blogging from my BB, I probably won't be doing so. 

The event will be viewable online and if you have any interesting in human trafficking, law or transnational issues, I would recommend giving it a watch for a few minutes. You might even see me (although it's unlikely). 

I'm also looking forward to hopefully meeting up with an old friend from my SBI days back in Italy who I haven't seen in a couple years. We have a rather sorry record of missing each other whenever we're in the same city at the same time, but just maybe that will change this weekend. 

Anyhow, in the event that you don't hear from me until after the weekend, have a good one!
