A post telling you what you probably already figured out because you aren't a complete idiot most of the time.

  So basically I went on hiatus without telling you all. I feel really bad and I've been avoiding confessing it out of shame. If it helps I totally have a for real legitimate excuse this time-

                  I'm going to Africa.

   As in, I am getting on a plane in 16 hours and heading to Rwanda for a month. To live at an orphanage.

And help real orphans.

To be fair, they don't really need my help, they already live at a super awesome place with some really great people and get to play soccer all the time, but you get the idea.

    I tried Googling "route to Kigali, Rwanda from Colorado" in hopes of finding an Indiana Jones-type map with a little red line bouncing across the Atlantic Ocean to include in this post, but for some reason someone has yet to make that and I for real don't have time to photo-shop it. Someone should get on that.

    So I have been crazy busy getting (I kid you not) eight shots, three oral vaccines, and two blood tests along with trying not to hyperventilate on a regular basis and pass my classes* to focus on hilarious anecdotes from my retail work-place.

     I can however promise you this: when I get back I will have nothing better to do for at least the rest of the summer other than to find horrifying situations to pick through for comedic gems. For real, I will not let you down again.

                      *I did pass my classes, with some serious help from my Sister and her husband. For real, between the three of us we could get any degree in record time. Also my English Instructor had this comment on my final-
                         "You make great observations and have a wonderful feel for writing. You seem to struggle with remaining impartial and your editing skills need more work- you don't have to make everything humorous." 
   I choose to take that as a compliment.


  1. haha - I think it's pretty good that she thinks you have passable editing skills considering you probably never edited a single thing for that class. You need to keep that so that you can publish it on the back of the awesome book you write when you're a famous author.

  2. Bon Voyage! I look forward to hearing about this trip!

  3. Please don't fail to find the humor in Africa as well!
