Okay peeps...it’ll take too long to relate the past four months in detail, so here is a summarized timeline.
-June...was a cool month. school ended, and i got to visit the fam down in soCal.
-July...pretty boring, except for the 4th.
-August...began as another tedious working month, until i got the idea to travel to london in the fall. that idea soon unraveled into an opportunity to LIVE in london, which i snagged with almost no hesitation.
-September...very, very interesting month. the 1st was my fly-out-of-the-county date. I flew out of seattle that night, and arrived in london on the 2nd, only to be sent back 12 hours later. (shoot me an email for details). so, plan A was shot down, and poor summer was without an au pair. problem was, i didn’t have a plan B, mainly because i am naïve and sometimes idealistic. so here i am, back in seattle 48 hours after i tried to escape. i have some very gracious friends who offered to take me in, and i stayed with them for 5 days.
now, guess where i am. try.
you got it.
the very place i’ve been trying to avoid ever since i fled**.
the place i grew up in. the dry, dusty, deserty, windy, two-seasony, joshua-tree-prolificacy, dirty, hick-y,….ugh. hesperia, ca. the place where riding your dirt bike is the THING to do on weekends. don’t get me wrong; i love my friends and family, but….hesperia. why??
God really has a sense of humor, folks. So, stay tuned as i develop a plan B.
** well, not really...try “evaded”...hmm, actually, that doesn’t work, either. i did move away to school, where i discovered much better places. let’s leave it at that.
