Well HELLOOOOOO there old friends. I’m back! And I’m sorry, and I love you. I know what you’re thinking, I can’t just leave for 2 months and up and walk through the door and be all hey I’m back, sorry, and expect things to be peachy king again. Well, you’re right, I owe you all an explanation.
So, why did I drop off the face of the Earth for 2+ months you ask? It’s easy. I’ve been in this little country in Western Africa called Malawi, teaching poor kids math for free. Don’t you feel like an asshole now? Good.
Here’s how it happened, I was at my new job just minding my own business when one of the Surgeons that I work with asked me on a date. Oh, did I mention that he’s also Brazilian? Yes, yes he is, and H-O-T. Anyway, of course I said yes. We pretty much fell in love and he told me about this mission trip he was doing from September – October, since we’re in love and he’s a rich Doctor, I quit my job and went. I know it seems pretty reckless, but when else in my life will I have this opportunity? Well, I mean now that I’m dating a Doctor that does this stuff all the time, a lot, but that’s beside the point.
Anyway, I spent the last 2 weeks in August getting all my immunizations/reading up on what it’s like to be in a third world country and then September 1st we were off. Basically it was the time of my life, yes I pretty much spent the first two weeks barfing my guts up from the water/food – but after that it was awesome. At some point I’ll put up some pictures/share some stories, but I’ve been back all of 3 days so I’m still trying to get used to electricity and water without dirt and parasites in it – let alone the internet (blowing my mind right now!). Did I mention I’m really tan? I’m really tan. It’s awesome.
So anyway, I need to give props to Lucky for running this show solo the last 2 months, she’s done a spectacular job even though she’s now going through a hard time. Now that I’m the equivalent of a house wife, since I’m all African cultured now and have no job, I shouldn’t have any trouble posting my little heart out.
So I hope everyone will welcome me back with open arms and get ready for some stories of what’s really been going on in my life the last 2 months, because if you people know me at all, you know that the entire above mentioned story is a crock of shit. Except the part about me quitting my job (again), and that I now have a boyfriend, that stuff is true – the rest was a joke. Tune in next week!
