3 Month Check Point

This is an exciting time for me. I can't believe I've made it three months. I was looking through my old sketch books and reading some things I wrote about the prospect of coming here....and now I've been here three months. Life is crazy if you really think about it.
Things were really sucky the beginning/middle of this month. But Joy and I decided to take a little trip. We leave tomorrow. This, more than anything else I think, is lightening my spirits. That and the fact that this month flew by. I feel like I just wrote the blog about September limbo. I also know that the months wont be slowing down. I'll be home before I know it.
This doesn't stop me from being extremely homesick however. I wish I could be there for my sisters first year of college. I wish I could go see where my mom has started teaching. I wish I could go see my brothers new apartment. I wish I could be home and try to repair my relationship with my dad. I wish I could see my old roommate Allison in her first musical theater role. But I am only here for a year....I can't wait to see what else is going to happen while I'm here. I have only just begun.

  1. Wow, Meg!! I just found your site through your mom's site, and read the whole thing! Amazing. I especially liked the realness with which you described your life, how you respect the privacy of those you meet/teach/work with, the variation on your name, and the word barf post. Our family is moving to Thailand next year (haven't even written your mom about that yet!) and so I appreciate even more the realities you show on your blog. I am super-excited for you and your year in India. I am sure that by the time it is over, you'll wonder at how fast it went. Lots of love to you! Lindsay :)
