Getting familiar|KISC Autumn 2018

It's been a month. The time I thought would take forever to pass, has passed. Most of the things I thought I would never learn, I have learned. What I thought wouldn't work out, worked out just fine. On Saturday I was in catering. We met up at 7:15 as we usually do, but the… Continue reading Getting familiar|KISC Autumn 2018


Below, in and above the clouds|KISC Autumn 2018

Monday and Tuesday I spent in Grounds and Catering. In Grounds, I took care of two tiny pine trees that had been planted on the lawn in front of the centre, because the lawn was flooded.
