Chillin' w/Hadag Nachash

(Sean, me, Yair, Yael)
So the concert was amazing, as expected. Sean got me in since I wasn't there for the whole AIPAC deal, then we walked past the droves of excited teenagers into the room where the concert was going to be. The band was all so sweet, saying hello to me and chatting, almost right up until they went onstage. They really are such nice guys, besides the fact that they're great musicians. The show was primarily for high schoolers, so I was one of the older people in the room, but since I can easily pass for a high schooler, I didn't stand out that much! :)

(Yael, Shlomi, Moshe)
So all in all, I had a great time. How's that for an eventful weekend? Nice...

So last night was out of control fun, and pretty f-ing random. Yael & I were supposed to have a "girls night out", then right after Shabbas I get a call from her that we're going to have some company--Hadag Nachash. Yup, we're talking about the awesome Israeli band, of "Sticker Song" fame. So they came over to Yael's, we chilled there for awhile, then went to some bar, then some club (clearly I wasn't the one in charge of the plans, right?). So much fun. They're such nice guys, I even managed to not be startstruck (unlike when I met Guster and every intelligent thing to say flew out of my head and I was like "Uhhh..I love you guys!"). So today I'm going to their concert (they're playing at this AIPAC event). Awesome.

Once again, it's almost Shabbas. Amazing how quickly this week has gone. Only one week left working for Young Judaea--crazy after 2 years. I'm really going to miss it, and the kids especially.

Driving back to Michigan next week for Baby Schon's bris. Going in either Tues night or Wed morning, staying for a bit, so those of you I didn't see last trip, now's your chance! I kinda want to go some place fun for the weekend, maybe find some snow and go riding, or go camping, or maybe just drive someplace... Anyone want to join me?

Shabbat Shalom!

Spent this weekend in Michigan, for Jake's 24th birthday. Such a great time. He had this massive party in his apartment with this band Woodward. Saw a bunch of people, had a gr8 time.

I'd write more, but my iBook crashed again and isn't really working right now. I'm sending it back to Apple again in the morning. Poor baby... :(

Just came back from staffing my last Young Judaea convention... It was such a wonderful convention, and the kids did such an amazing job planning it, that I know they're going to be okay once I leave, but that still doesn't really make leaving easier. Although some of them had already heard I was leaving (apparently they read my blog--who knew), it was tough telling the ones that hadn't heard. I know they feel a little betrayed, and I guess if I put my high school self in their place I would too, but I know I'm making the right decision.

Before YJ Winter Convention, I was in DC at the NAA Conference. Fun conference, plus awesome to be in DC & finally see Mom & Dad's new apartment, and friends from Nativ & Michigan that live in the area. At the conference I saw people I know from so many different places--Nativ, Pilgrimage, BBYO...even reconnected with a kid I went to Maimo with in 2nd grade! So fun. :)

And I've now officially been in my office for way too many hours, so I'm going home.

Well, today has been a monumental day. The morning began with the news that Danny Schnitzer accepted the position of Camp Young Judaea Midwest Director/Merchav Manager. Danny is an amazing person and I'm confident that he is going to do incredibly well in his new job. Knowing that Midwest Young Judaea is in good hands, made the next news even better.

I have been offered, and have accepted, the position of Program Director for Camp Chi. While it is of course sad to leave Young Judaea after working for the movement for 2 years, I'm also so excited with my new job and with the opportunity to work year round in camping.

So thanks to everyone whose kept me calm during this whole interview process, and here goes nothing!!

Happy New Year!!!
