This is my "journal" through my second stint in The Gambia (West Africa). Brutally honest and forthright, I'm trying to let people into my real life and experiences in Africa. In the words of Stephen Colbert, in his beautifully genius book "I am America (and so can you)"...
I lost 15 pounds,
I highly reccomend this book.
Here's about me in a nutshell. I love laughter. I lick the lids of jello-pudding snacks. I believe in sugar, not sugar substitute. I'm not a hippy, I'm a "non-conformist". I hate feet. I have an irrational fear of whales and deep water. Music exploration- try it. I'd like to start walking my cat. I live to stick my foot under the faucet when the shower is done and hot water dribbles out. I think moist may be one of the greatest words in the English language. Who doesn't love Llyod Dobler? I live for today, and for Africa. Favorite quote: To dream of the person you could be is to waste the person you are.
"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."- Howard Thurman
