The Return of The Millie
Well, hello there, dear followers! I have missed you!
I never meant to be away so long, but one thing led to another...
I become a responsible adult in April and then I spent the next two months pretending to work hard on studying for finals and finishing high school and such. Mostly, I just watched whole seasons of Survivor on YouTube and played thousands of games of computer solitaire, while staring listlessly off into space contemplating what I was going to do with my life.
On June 16th, I graduated from high school and simultaneously graduated from college with my Associates degree. (I kinda love Glorious Washington's Running Start program, which lets HS juniors and seniors attend college full-time for free!)
In the early hours of June 19th, my first nephew was born. And in the slightly less early -- but still quite ungodly -- hour of 5:00 am, I was at the airport heading to Sierra Leone.
That is where I have since then. I really did not forget about you all!
I honestly kept coming up with random posts that I wanted to write, but it seemed somehow awkward to pop up with my top ten favorite Vincent Price mustaches -- after being away so long. ;-D
Anyway, I'm back. And no more school! This summer is gonna be awesome.
I'll be gone in the fall again, but not to school (I'm waiting a year). Instead, I'm gonna be somewhere in the world. I don't know quite what yet. Perhaps on Mercy Ship in Guinea, West Africa. Perhaps on a YWAM DTS in Switzerland. I really don't know yet. It's gonna be awesome though. I'm super-excited!
Anyway, I'm quite happy to be back. I've been forced to write far too many lucid essays these last six months. I NEED to write some nonsensical loveliness!
