I'm In Kenya!

Jambo, followers.

I'm quickly writing this to you from Kenya!
I'm there for a project called Teachers4Teachers. Were here with 40 teachers from the Netherlands to inspire fellow teachers over here in Kenya. This is a beautiful country and after work we have a beautiful place to relax! See you soon!
Hakunama Tata.

My score:
In the last days before her death, Nel called her sister. Jules didn’t pick up the phone, ignoring her plea for help.

Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules has been dragged back to the one place she hoped she had escaped for good, to care for the teenage girl her sister left behind.

But Jules is afraid. So afraid. Of her long-buried memories, of the old Mill House, of knowing that Nel would never have jumped.

And most of all she’s afraid of the water, and the place they call the Drowning Pool . . .

Guestpost; Jeyran Introduces Herself

So, last month Jeyran from Review Tales wrote an amazing, inspiring guest post that was titled Instead of "Sorry" Try saying "Thank You."
It actually helped me to react in a more positive way towards others and there were a lot of positive reactions on that post as well.

This month, I thought it would be nice to introduce Jeyran a bit further, because you will be seeing a monthly guest post from her! We did a little interview-form where I wrote her 5 questions, as a sort of icebreaker. Don't forget to visit her blog as well...

Welcome to Christine's life.
