Building Houses in Watts with the Koreans
Spent last Saturday doing something I've been wanting to do for ages: Habitat for Humanity. It was a lot of fun even though no cranes or bulldozers were involved. All we got to do was paintingg molding on two neighboring houses...but it was fun and rewarding nonetheless. I was quite proud that while most other people were there with work or church type groups, I was there with 3 of my oldest and bestest friends just for the hell of it. (Although we were outdone by the girl who showed up all by herself). Even better was the fact that I think hanging in Watts helped with my friends insecurities about being in a more 'urban' environment. (The houses had a view of the Watts Towers). I highly recommend everyone chipping in once in awhile.
