A Bugs Life


Lessons I learned about bugs:

+ Stay stocked with DOOM (insect spray) and keep it near you at all times.

+ Shake out your clothes before putting them on (a spider about the size of the palm of my hand came out of my jacket one day). 

+ Check the floor @ night before putting your feet down.

+ Mosquito nets will be your saving grace. 

I found a way to hang mine! 🎉

+ Lizards are your friends (they eat spiders and mosquitos).

+ Trust your gut. After a movie night in Gogo’s house, I asked my host sister to walk back with me to my hut because I had a bad feeling about something. Lo and behold, I open the door and turn on the light and a bat is flying around!

😖 my host family rescued me!

I've decided to uproot my life and dedicate it to serving in the Peace Corps for 27 months. Yuuuuup, you read that right. God has helped me redefine limitations. A dear friend once told me that, "boxes are for shoes, you never know how great you are until you break out of the box and see what you are really made of!" This blog will chronicle my adventures as a Peace Corps Youth Development Volunteer in the Kingdom of Swaziland! You'll read about my highest of highs compounded with the lowest of lows - raw and unfiltered. Please enjoy the view. :) *The contents of this blog are mine and do not reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps.*
