Word Barf

This is how I feel about writing. It would be so much easier for me if I could just barf all the words onto a page and then try and figure out where they go. But because writing is the way it is, I have to go into my mind and try and pick out the words from the word barf. It's a messy business that I hardly ever get right and I just end up feeling like I've still got barf in my brain once I'm finished. Oh well.
I wanted to blog today because things are going well. I'm feeling more and more like I know my way around.  I am also moving into my new building on Saturday. I cannot wait for this. It's just a room with my own little bathroom and a balcony off the back. I have a shared kitchen. I'm going to be the only one in my building for a while. But when school starts there will be foreigners moving in who are visiting/studying. I am looking forward to meeting a bunch of different people.
My friend took me to "the walmart of India" yesterday to get house supplies. It was an adventure. Here in India the check out system is whoever can get the attention of the clerk. You seriously have to fight to get checked out or else it will never happen. I almost didn't have enough money and everywhere only takes cash. But it worked out, don't worry lol Anyway, I am continually blessed by people who are willing and happy to help me. I could not do this without the support and love of other people and this humbles me. But also continually reminds me that there are good people out there. Which is good. It's easy for me to get caught up in all the bad things that have and will happen.
Anyway, this is my little rant for the day I guess. Sending out my love to all of you. bye. :P


  1. I LOVE this phrase, Meg! "Word Barf"...I may just have to borrow it some time!! :) p.s. Were you affected by the major power outages in India?

  2. I love that analogy, Meg. I know exactly what you mean. :) I am so glad you are feeling better and that you are determined to make it through these first tough weeks. You will be all the stronger for it, my dear! I promise! Be careful over there. Love you.
