So to rap up the tent pitching, I have this to say, its interesting how that works. How if one person slacks off it makes it harder for the rest and how working together we got almost all of the tents up in about 3-4 days. I do have to say I was kind of surprised that I was stronger then most of the other girls helping out, I thought that was weird but hey, I lifted more by myself then most of them did and I felt I had better endurance. But I think that is because I am a competitive person and I didn't want to be shown up. I wanted to prove that even though I am from the city and what not I can do just as much if not more then them. And I feel like I did prove my self, not that I had to but I did. But all in all it was a good time and towards the end all of the Germans were warming up to me. It was actually funny I was talking with one of them and I made a joke (like I usually do) about how awesome I am and he was like I know you are, and was totally serious about it, and then I was like what?! No, not actually. lol but its cool to know some of them think I'm awesome because later when we were saying good bye one of them told me to stay awesome.
So then Monday I started my regular routine, and I felt like I was in "Green Acres" a city girl moving out to the farm life. I started my day with feeding the animals and then you know what I got to do......clean out a pen! I got to do the goose pen, and can I tell you how much I had no idea what I was doing! Apparently I did an alright job, or so I was told. But yeah I felt so out of place that day, but now I am getting more accustom to it, this morning I even took care of feeding the female alpacas by myself, and every morning I usually walk the geese to their out door pen and the pigs too. I call it the daily pig run because they have quite a bit to go and the pigs always run!
So I have gotten use to the smell of the barn, and I am getting use to not staying so clean. Like you think it is hard to stay clean in the city, pft that's easy, but here I'm touching animals and cleaning barns and such that by the end of the day I'm just like ugh. But like the people who lived here and grew up here I am getting used to it. So much for keeping my nails nice while I'm here lol. Oh well I'm not sure why I expected anything different I knew what I was getting in to and I can defiantly say I am happy here. I think about where I am at now and at this moment I am so happy I have another 14 months to look forward to because I am happy and there is no other place I would rather be.
