The Magic of Merlynne

My roommate here (who is a kind, wonderful person) has a dog. Which, as anyone who knows me knows that the dog is the most important thing to me here. I love animals a lot and it has been very nice having one here. I think the change would be a lot harder if I didn't have a pet to cuddle.


Some of the students have decided that they think my eyes are very pretty. Which is kind of them, however I've been asked:
"Can I have your eyes?" and
"Can I pop your eyes out of your head and put them in mine?"
which slightly concerns me. But I will still take the compliment.

What I wish I was doing 99% of the time.

Some of the younger kids told me I had a pretty laugh and that I giggle a lot. Which made me feel like I was some sort of Disney princess. They also noticed a skin bump I have on my nose and asked if it was a pimple. Which did not make me feel like a Disney princess (but it did make me laugh like one).

I was walking past some kids playing after I bought some things from the store (a can of coke, a single serving bottle of apple juice, and two loaves of bread for $16) and they told me
"We're playing Zombieland, but we only have one baby."

Which also made me laugh.

I have been slightly stressed lately. It can be hard sometimes to keep the students motivated and every weekend I spend hours at the school for basketball. I have also still been having trouble sleeping at night.

I did get to see the Northern Lights. That was really cool. They were pale and they stretched over the entire village - I missed them when they were bright green. Still cool though.

  1. Cute dog! Keep that Disney princess chin up! I'm wondering what kind of Alaskan animal is going to start singing with you and making your bed?
