We've found the whiffle ball!!

There has been a current of excitement flowing through the center since Noah and Ben stumbled across the missing whiffle at 12:45 yesterday afternoon. It was found nestled up against the backyard fence and wedged in between two bushes. Life just hasn't been the same for the past two weeks with the absence of the whiffle ball in our lives. The whiffle ball is a way for many of us to take a break from the academic pressures of CBB life. It lets us cut loose and temporarily escape from the CBB vault. As soon as the whiffle ball was recovered yesterday a huge burden was lifted from everyone's shoulders. Life can now go on.

Aside from that excitement, it's been a pretty chill week. We are at the end of the third to last week of classes and the work has definitely been piling on. Wednesday marked the second screening of our AIDS videos and was a huge success. With the exception of that, we are pretty much just going to class and wrapping up our work. Ben, Sarah, Hanah, Noah, and I had an incredible visit at Joy For Life yesterday where we were shooting footage for our documentaries. We met a bunch of people involved with the program. Basically, Joy for Life is run by a woman who has opened up a house to people with HIV/AIDs and anyone else who feels like stopping in. It is pretty much a space to relax and escape from societal pressures. We had an amazing time there and came away with a great feeling about the afternoon.

Aside from academic stuff, there is a big Western Province v. Free State rugby game coming up this weekend, which many of us are excited about. I'm about to head out the door to pick up tickets right now so hopefully there will be some left. Hope all is well in the states. It's pretty unbelievable that we only have a month and a half left here. But don't worry, we have found our whiffle ball so we will survive. If anyone still feels motivated to send us another one, a backup ball would be appreciated.
