I have been back on campus for what seems like a really long time now even though it’s been less than two weeks. I have not been blogging because every day has been the same with ResLife Training but there are tidbits that I would like to share. I figured these tidbits weren’t worthy of their own individual posts but I might simply be too lazy.
Yesterday evening was special because Jupiter’s moons vanished completely from our perspective on Earth. It was quite a big deal because it happens once every ten years. I caught glimpses of it through the telescope before the moons disappeared into the shadows of Jupiter. Seeing Jupiter through a telescope is amazing if I really think and reflect on it. Viewing any thing in the universe is humbling.
- McDonald’s is opening its first restaurant in Lugogo Mall in Kampala. Freak, Ugandans are going to have heart problems.
- Hollywood is making Girl Soldiers, a movie starring Uma Thurman as Sister Caroline. Girl Soldiers is based on the Aboke Girls who were abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army during the conflict in the north.
- Not only is a movie being made about the situation in the north but there is also a video game out. This is what the freak. The video game is called: Global Conflicts, Child Soldiers.
Finally, the U.S. Open has begun. Not going this year though, which is kind of poops.
