A good friend sent me a text last week asking, “How did you make big life decisions like moving and getting an adult job?” I thought it was funny because in most ways I’m still making the big life decisions that come with graduating college. I’m living in the same Tallahassee home I’ve lived in… Continue reading Quit telling me God has a plan.
2AM - Bangkok Suvarnabhumi (pronounced soo-wanna-poom because nothing in Thai is pronounced like you think it should be) airport. After delays and 23 hours of flying I’ve arrived and found myself lost in a herd of people who know I definitely don’t belong.
