I met two very interesting people Saturday while working at the center. I was working in the Pascente Office where guests come in to make phone calls, get hygiene products, medicine, and stay cool. I was getting something in the cabinet, when a man behind me asked for help. I turned around to find myself face to face with a man wearing jeans, no shirt, and an American flag bikini top. It took me half a second to swallow my shock, but then I was somehow able to help him as I do all the other guests.
After that experience, a sweet lady came in and began talking to my while she waited for the phone. She asked where I was from, and after I answered Akron, she told me she was also from Akron. Turns out she grew up less than a mile from my house. When she went to leave, I stuck out my hand, but she refused, instead saying, "No I'm giving you the love of God, son" and gave me a huge hug. After being a tad homesick last week, it was refreshing to meet someone from my stomping grounds.
Some statistics for you: Breaking the Standard Model has over 800 views since its inception a month ago! Thank you all so much! Special shout out to Josephine and Kayla, who are my two followers. Additionally and amazingly, the blog has been view on 3 continents! (I think the Germans and Malaysians were a little lost) That's just ridiculous!
Finally, a request: If you have any questions about my experience so far or anything you are dying to know, let me know by commenting, emailing, calling etc. I'd love to know what you are interested in!
