drunk people peed on our door.

(night time in bethel)

cory is my hero.
okay that is kinda lame, but listen to what happened today.
so we were in laying bed watching date night
some of the girls start knocking on our door saying there were some drunk people outside their door.
so of course we get up to go look through the window to see.
the girls were completely right.
two drunk people (a couple) were sitting on the stairs to the dorms from door.
cory went the door to tell them to leave, while us girls watch from the window.
well get this, cory opens the door and to his surprise the guy has his p**** out
and was peeing on our door.
i probably would have screamed and locked the door (and ran away),
but he took the more manly approach
us girls couldn't see the guy peeing we could only see the girl he was with,
but we could hear cory.
he was yelling loud, saying that this was a school and that what the guy was doing could land him in jail.
he also yelled other stuff but i couldn't remember.
ooh and cory made the guy apologise to him!
then cor called his friends as the police station and had them come pick up the couple.
i was so proud of him and the girls were laughing really hard.
in bethel i see a lot of drunk people.
most of which are completely harmless and wont bother you.
but some people can be a little aggressive.
and like i found out yesterday other drunks just want to pee on your door.

(our first babs house)
we are officially saying goodbye to our second babs house.
our next home will be the new girls/boys dorm.
this will be our third move in eight months. sheesh.
i can't even explain the new school.
something only pictures could describe.
- lets just say we are literally living in a elementary school.
- - - classrooms and all. oh and my kitchen is the cafeteria.
hope everyone having a good LONG weekend.
our has consisted of packing and moving...
ho hum, not the most exciting time.
still cory and i are enjoying the last couple days without kids.

dead things.

a quick visit to cory's work usually results in me playing with some dead things.
see the thing behind the buffalo?
its a wolverine...
think about how sexy wolverine is in x-men
and to think he is named after that weird looking animal. hmmm, interesting.

yeah. its kinda creepy in there.

living the simple life.

i'm not a stalker.
it might look like it.
but really i'm not.
i just am trying to document our life here more.
the people, the places... pretty much everything.
i mean we wont be here forever, sigh.
i never thought i would say this, but i will be devastated to leave.
i can't even explain how different my life is in bethel.
it keeps cory and i so close knit.
+ it has helped me to grow up.
all in all we are living the simple life.
no one here knows what seven jeans are or have any idea what nordstrom would sell.
people are just happy and excepting.
they don't care what you look like, what you are wearing, or what kinda of car you drive.
they just care that you are healthy, doing well, and enjoying life.

some of the nicest people on earth live in bethel. swear it.

welcome to yupik class. please take a seat.

random pictures unrelated to post.

cory and i have lived in bethel for almost seven months now.
we have learned a lot about the native people and culture.
but there is one thing that we are still trying to get a grasp on...

i have started to pick up on some words and phrases, such as:
(this is not the actual yupik spelling of the words)
((i tried to write them in a way that you could sound them out))

uss = listen to me
una wha ni = you or this one
die-gaa = come here
quyana = thank you
umpy = hurry up
as piq = good

so if i wanted to say, "hey you, hurry up!"
i would say, "una wha ni, umpy!"

well that concludes your first lesson in yupik.
come back next time for you lesson on numbers!
