well originally I had given myself a year to try and get myself back together but happily it has taken much less time than that. I mean… I mostly get by on terrible jokes and copious amounts of over-the-top smiles… but danggg at least my self confidence is largely back. I am now majoring in English Education and after I graduate I’m getting the heck out of dodge and moving to Costa Rica to teach. Did you know you can actually drive there? Which I won’t be doing, but bus rides through a few countries aren’t half bad either. In other news I am friends with a dude from Sudan and I think he has gotten ALL his knowledge of America from sitcoms. We’re talking HORRIBLE pick up lines. ah summer. I met a marine. that is all.
