Seventh Week In Siem Reap

January 24, 2010

This week, I…

got bitten by the homesick bug. Missing friends, family and Matilda Jean.

celebrated the opening of Circle Boutique, Rachel & Lauren’s latest adventure, with gluten-free cupcakes(!) + sangria. Jam will be opening a cafe on the roof in the next few weeks and plans to have gluten-free goodies!

attended a 20s themed birthday party on the roof of warehouse bar followed by a house party reminiscent of animal house. did not partake in canonballs into the pool but happily watched those who did.

burned myself hopping off a moto. learned that there is a correct side to dismount a moto. burn is healing nicely, but hurts. and itches sometimes.

realized that i would have to spend next week in takeo with the weavers  in order to facilitate a BIG project. finalized my agenda and head out tomorrow morning, monday that is.

watched the first six episodes of the second season of lie to me. so good.

made a job annoncement for a textile project officer who will assist me.  

experienced some major moments of frustration at work, but it’s the precursor to progress and achievement, right? right. it’s all in the learning curve.

spent a few evenings at wanderlust updating the media kit and lending a hand.

also put together a design brief and met with loven to discuss branding for my weaving project. felt really proud of the brief i put together and am super excited loven will be mentoring me.

    Hope everything is going well at the village.

    We miss you too so when you get back send me an email and we’ll Skype. Matilda is fine and really came around. She has become my cat since you’ve been gone but she’ll be yours again when you come home. I don’t let her lick my face, yuck like you do :).

    Miss you but enjoy the adventure.
