There’s no trail building tomorrow morning because of the rain, so my bedtime isn’t ten o’clock tonight 🙂

We also got started on a grade dip on a different section. A bunch of inmates helped us on parts of the trail we hadn’t gotten to yet, like connecting everything together. Then we went to a nearby river to wash off. That was really nice. I also Euked people in Eucher. (What was I thinking? haha) I should play that with people back home…(Trump, renigging, Right and left) My abdominal area didn’t feel too good today. Earlier today I was feeling sharp pains, not sure if it’s the work pants putting too much pressure in that area or something else. Then when I was getting ready for bed my stomach felt really queasy. I don’t know what it could be. I hope it doesn’t affect my work tomorrow…

I was worn out today. I still wasn’t feeling too great and it was really hot. Towards the end I felt like I was walking around in a stupor; not a good sign. We worked 8 hours finishing up River Loop Trail. Then we went to the store (I got ice cream) & then to the river agin. We checked out tomorrow’s trail; lots of weeds to get rid of. Laura and I also played Eucher with the guys tonight. Ian + Adam = annoying. I need to avoid that situation so it stops bothering me so much. Also we have to critique each other tomorrow. Great.

Crazy thunderstorms last night and strange lights! I love sleeping in the rain. Today’s 8 hour work day was hot but it went by fast. In the morning we were doing some (pointless) weed whipping against a bunch of grass. I got really into it, venting some frustration against the grass. Then I got to use the gas-powered brusher/weed eater. That was super fun. It took me awhile to figure out how to turn it on but once I did, I had a blast getting covered in grass and knocking it all over. We didn’t know how far the trail actually went so I stopped at a pretty random spot. During lunch we had our critique/feedback session. It went better than I thought it would. They all complimented me on my lack of complaints, ability to get things done and calming aura, but they also thought I should be more vocal and less introverted. I feel that after this feedback session I’m more comfortable around the whole group…I cooked dinner with Patrick today, chickpeas and eggplant stew. It went well. I also gave my No More Deaths presentation to the group. I definitely gave people info that they didn’t know before. I hope it inspires them to at least tell others or to find out more.
