Its been almost a year since my last entry. I can say–as I’m sure in all of your lives–that A LOT has happened.
I was living in Nepal- Living the good life. I had finally ”settled.” I had friends, work, and a house! I had started accumulating ”stuff” and I was involved in a society that was not my own. Along the way, I made amazing friends, had wonderful/crazy/happy/joyful times and learned A LOT about myself and the culture in which I was living.
In May I took a quick trip home for my cousin’s wedding. The entire vibe of home just felt comfortable. For once in my life I wasn’t running away from normalcy, but rather embracing it with both arms. Nothing felt better than being around family, familiarity, and 24 hour electricity and water 🙂
I decided to stay the summer.
As summer winded down–I still hadn’t had enough of home. I was content. Happy even. So I decided to put down temporary roots again and restart my education. Thankfully, 3 years ago, I made one of the best decisions I had ever made– I finished my Associates Degree. Luckily for me, I could start right where I left off and be on my way to a career I’ve wanted since I worked at an orphanage for children who are disabled in Thailand all those years ago.
So here I am, half way through my first semester (3 and 1/2 more to go!! 🙂 ) — starting something I’ve long since missed… WRITING! I don’t know why I didn’t keep up a blog while in Nepal/India. It would have been interesting- that’s for sure. I know people asked me to, but I just didn’t feel it at the time.
Today I found out some wonderful news, that sparked my interest to write again. I got the final acceptance for an internship abroad in Costa Rica. I will be starting in January and working in San Jose. Luckily for me, I’ve already lived there and have some amazing friends that I’m excited to see again. Granted, I won’t have my partner in crime with me this time–My lovely sister Kara… But alas, it will be yet another beautiful adventure–
And you’ll all be along for the ride.
