Living in earthquake prone Japan I feel for the people of Nepal and am keeping up to date on the rescue efforts in Nepal. For all of the visitors to Nepal the infrastructure is not up to par and the people are poor. WHY? Apparently the earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday has been expected. I Googled it and found an interesting thread with comments from many Nepalese: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/Why-Nepal-is-poor-country-3904792.S.178991823

Have a good one!

Katie

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 11.03.29 PMI grew up with earthquakes. California is earthquake central and is hit by earthquakes all of the time. Nothing prepared me for a MAJOR earthquake like the one in Kobe of 1995. The earthquake survivors of Nepal, like those in Kobe and Tohoku, have a long road ahead of them. It took me a few years to get used to the rattle and shaking of a truck going by…these simple things get magnified and leave your heart beating, readying to escape.

Have a good one!

Katie

2) That looks delicious. It is! I got it at the bakery near the station. It was my first time to go to that bakery.
3) Can you play tennis? No. I don’t really like sports. I like reading!

We started on Monday w/heavy is the head that wears the crown.

Uneasy lies the head that wears a crowndefinition

A person who has great responsibilities, such as a king, is constantly worriedand therefore doesn’t sleep soundly. This saying is a line from the play KingHenry the Fourth, Part Twoby William Shakespeare.

Leadership can be exhausting. Leaders care greatly about being successful. They have responsibility for others. This can be family members, workplace people, a community and, sometimes, a country. There is always someone with a request. Leadership can be exhausting.

Have a good one! 

Sincerely,

Katie

It is hard to be a leader. It is even harder for each of us to know that we are the leaders in our own lives. You are the leader in your life. I am the leader in my life. It takes a lot of patience and healthy habits to be a successful leader. Every day decisions that we make on a daily basis. It’s hard to be a leader! 

Have a good one! 

Sincerely,

Katie

I went to UCSD and I had a lot of friends who were pre-med students. WOW! When did they sleep? I don’t think they did. They studied night and day. They were working their tails off to get into med school. The pressure and responsibility were very hard to handle. I can only imagine how it was in med school.

Have a good one!

Katie
