Welcome to the blog!


Quick Note: To be honest, I didn’t have much intention of making a blog once I arrived in Sierra Leone for the Peace Corps. Instead, I figured I would keep everyone up to date with what was going on in my life through Facebook and Instagram, and leaning more so on the latter. Considering I’ve never been one for expressing my thoughts or feelings or being particularly articulate, it seemed like a good option. However, while discussing the merits of writing a journal during my service with my dad, he pointed out that at some point when I am old and senile, I will look back on the journal fondly and it will remind me of many things long forgotten. Frustratingly, I didn’t have any good counter argument to that, so I begrudgingly created this blog instead; partly because making something public and online would annoy him (and I was annoyed that he was right), but mainly because it still accomplished the same goal. As they say, everything on the internet lasts forever…Millennials, am I right?

      Haha good job guys. I am still in fact terrible at learning languages, so I probs won’t a paragraph in a language other than English. I have not kicked anyone either. Also surprisingly, I haven’t really gotten burnt yet, but when I was at the beach I used a lot of the sunscreen James gave me lol And finally, when I first got here I was waking up early, so now I’m just kinda used to it 🙂

    Nice prologue, I now have it in writing, you were sent to this world to torture me.
    I must now find out who sent you, and why….
    In the meantime, you continue to be somewhat amazing…..and hugely entertaining 🙂
    Love You, Stay safe.
