Yes, jumping rope is a skill that hasnt caught my interest long enough to master.
"I already get stared at enough in this godforsaken country" ... please elaborate: "get stared at enough" and "this godforsaken country"
Is the novelty of peace work wearing off?
Believe you me, Caslon, this type of work wore off long ago, when I realized that what this country really needs is for its government and people to stop being so utterly and completely corrupt, and for the border with Turkey to open up so that the country can have some sort of more efficient means of getting products, two things that I can do absolutely nothing to help with. I also am really jaded towards what I perceive as an absolute lack of a genuine culture in the face of bullheaded insistence that Armenian culture is so pure, when in reality their music comes from Turkey, their clothes come from Turkey, their television comes from Russia and America, and most elements of deep culture were swept away by the Soviet Union.
As for getting stared at, you know when your mom told you not to stare as a little kid? Nobody's mom here told them that. Because I have white skin and don't look Russian, nobody thinks twice before staring at me as I'm walking by. No one even thinks twice before blatantly turning around for a half a minute when I'm walking behind them to stare at me, and then having all their friends do the same. I thought I liked attention, but that has quickly worn off.
