I got mail! Over a month after it was sent! But it came and I was a smilin' fool yesterday when I got back to my room after the movie and found two packages on my bed. Dear Laura and Mariah, you are awesome beyond awesomeness. Love, Joanna.
I now have about 1500 stickers and two new pairs of socks and some vegetable-shaped fridge magnets and a plastic cowboy and a plastic [Native American] and some Mad Libs and a tiny pen keychain with matching tiny notebook keychain and . . . probably something that I'm forgetting about right now. Suffice to say that yesterday was a pretty good day.
For those of you who have asked, the same address that I gave out when I left (to the office in Auckland) can still be used to reach me. They forward mail every Friday, so anything sent will reach me within a week of its arriving in New Zealand. Since there's no way of knowing how long it will take for any piece of mail to reach this side of the world, I figure that's the best way to do it, just in case something happens to change my living situation while it's crossing the ocean. Point is, if you want to send me mail (and you know you do), just send it care of the program office and I will definitely get it. Yes.
