I was talking with a friend last night, being all introspective and sh*t, and she mentioned that if I get a position, she’s definitely coming to visit me because “when you have a friend who’s living in Africa, how often does that opportunity come along?”.
That hit me harder than the thought of coming home and finding that some of my friends have babies.
I’ve been thinking about working in Africa for 2 + years; the specifics of living without running water, steady electricity or wifi for 2+ years, but somehow the phrase of “living in Africa” dropped like “I’ve got a friend living in Boston” really hit home.
I have a feeling this is going to keep hitting in waves. My brain really can’t wrap around the whole thing at once; but I’m 100% sure that I want to do this, and that I’ll be able to handle whatever comes with it.
