Did you ever realize that speaking more slowly is an art? When you try to communicate across the language barrier you stop and go “Whoa… maybe what I’m saying really is hard to understand!” It’s the gift of finding simple, new ways to tell people the most important things. It’s tough, but it’s good.
Today I went on a walk with my sister and two Chinese ESL-student friends. It was a great time!
After that, my sister and I headed over to our church to help film a church short film for this Easter’s production. We were shooting a short scene where a teen girl is on her first day at school at a cafeteria, where she tries to find someone to relate to. Expect to see a version online sometime before Easter!
And yesterday evening Becky, Tim, and I went out on a nice trip around downtown Fayettevile, asking people if they wanted to be interviewed. We ended up in the park and got the majority of our whopping 5 interviews, and I got to play basketball with a bunch of teen dudes who I’ve never met before – it was awesome. I plan on going out to film some more interviews in Beckley soon.
And tonight I finished a new version of my little character. Hope you like Mr. Ugly!
And that about concludes everything for tonight. I wish you all the best and look forward to my future of bright opportunities, friendships, and discoveries.
