Things I have a greater appreciation for after being in Mexico:

--Toilet seats
--Toilet paper stationed regularly in bathrooms
--Being able to flush toilet paper, rather than having to throw it away
--Toilets that actually flush
--Cold drinking water
--Hot shower water
--Clean tap water
--Roads with minimal potholes
--Sleeping in (twice I was up before five)
--Air conditioning
--Meat (the mission was vegetarian, which was pretty good, but I missed meat)
--Regularly understanding the language (I spoke some Spanish, but not really enough)
--MY COMPUTER AND THE INTERNET

It was a good trip, over all. I knew it was a mission going in, but even then I was surprised at how much religion there really was -- worship every morning and every night, prayer over every meal and before starting work...and the hours of church on the sabbath were sort of excruciating, for someone who doesn't go to church. But the religious stuff made the other people in the group happy, and the locals were appreciative, so it was all right. I might have more to say about the trip later, but right now I'm pretty tired.

In law school news, I came back to news of my financial aid award from Georgetown and my acceptance into Cornell. Cornell! I still would rather go to Georgetown, but damn, Cornell's another really good school, so I'm pretty pleased about that.
