Dear Jozi

There's this amazing boy.
His name is Duncan 

He has cool hair.
He has a beautiful soul.
He has the best way of looking at life.
He's a total stoner genius.
He's gonna be a scientist one day.
He makes bad days better.
He has the best, goofy, sideways smile in the world.
He's great.
I don't normally blog about people, but He isn't just a person.


Dear Jozi

Six thirty, Sunday morning, I found myself with Nathanel at the Beyachad center painting the most amazing Netzer mural on the wall. 

By ten thirty I had drawn it, and Nat and me started painting. 

It took most of the day, and the heat was almost unbearable. Later that afternoon, Lily, Gareth, Michal and Jakey joined in the painting and did the green background while Rosa and I missioned around to get free Diet Cokes with our Chip n Dip.

The day was great and I think our Netzer Mural turned out quite lovely, don't you?

About two hours in...

Right near the end everybody helped do the background
 that Nathanel and I forgot to do in the begining...

This lady was part of the mural competition. At this point it was still not finnished, I have yet to see it done but I think its super amazing and shes wonderfully talented. I hope she won.
The competition was open to anyone, we were given the wall space, along with the other youth movements to show our presence in the comunity.

Thats me painting my foot to add my foot print to the mural.
This is me "making my mark" as it were.

It really was a lot of fun, and even worth the patchy sunburn on my arm where there were paint marks and my peeling neck, and the paint in my hair. I wouldn't of wanted it any other way!

Nilmad V'na Aseh! 
We will learn, and we will do!

Dear Jozi

There's too many boys out there that'll break your heart.

This is probably one of my favorite songs at the moment.

I know I said I loved You but I'm thinking that I was wrong,
 I'm the first to admit that I'm still pretty young, 
I never meant to hurt you when I wrote you ten love songs.
My mind has fucked me over more times than any man could ever know.
 Maybe I should give up, Give in. Give up trying to be thin. 
Give up and turn into my mother, God knows I love her.
 I'm sorry to which ever man should meet my sorry state.
I will never love a man, cause love and pain go hand in hand, and I cant do it, Again.
So we stay up late one night, to try and get our problems right,
But I couldn't get into his head just what was going through my mind,
I've got this friend that sounds just like him,
He's the man I'd leave you for
The man that I just adore, like you.
The same man that turns to me,
and says: "I've got to tell you how you feel,
If God could make the perfect girl for me, it would be you."
Michael told me not to tell,
how much do you love your fella?
I don't know, more everyday.
Not in this new romantic way.

I'll always be your first love.
You'll always be my first love


Dear Jozi

If you're open for it, there's a good few amazing people out there who are willing to share some giggles with you behind a bar, after having your heart broken twice in one day.

This post is an ode to the lovely girl who made me smile on Saturday Night when the world felt like it was crashing down around me. And, of course, to the lovely young lad, who kept me company that night.

Do you like our little hand people, drawn so expertly by a beautiful passer by (:
