February Gloom...

How is it that the shortest month of the year always seems to drag by like a slug making its way across the road?

Maybe it's the fact that the weather has cooled down a bit (highs in the 60's are killing us down here - sorry to all of my friends and family in the Midwest and other snow stricken regions of the United States). Maybe it's the fact that there haven't really been any service projects to attend to so the weekends seem to last forever (not that that's always a bad thing mind you). Maybe it's the fact that we're about halfway done with our service here, comfortable with our surroundings, and have gotten into a rut.

Whatever the reason may be, this isn't the first time that February has crawled by. I remember feeling the exact same feeling last year when I was in Seoul. It was about this time that I got involved with Mannam and started doing more volunteer work, which definitely provided new and interesting opportunities. Maybe it's time to switch things up a bit and get involved with something new...

Anyone have any suggestions for things I should try out???
