Day 13 – Issue a public apology.
I’m sorry that my rad self isn’t currently taking up space in your country. You see, after visiting you six years ago, I decided that I would one day live there – even if only for a few months. Then, I got into a relationship. That relationship ended, and then a year went by of weirdness. At the end of that weirdness I decided that I wanted nothing to do with boys, that I would be graduating from college and then moving to Australia. Maybe forever. I’d worry about boys when I returned.
I really was determined. I promise. But, apparently, I’m a sucker for boys with curly hair who come along when you least expect them to. I fell in love. With a boy who also wanted to move to Australia. He ruined everything. In the best way possible, of course! We got married and moved to Portland, while keeping Australia in our minds. Unfortunately we’ve now decided to wait three more years so that I can get loans forgiven for teaching in Maine. We’d be crazy not to take the option of getting loans forgiven.
I apologize for putting you on hold, yet again. Luckily for you, you don’t know what you’re missing out on – yet.
One day you’ll see. I’m meant to live in your country. And I swear we won’t forget about you! We WILL get there. You just wait and see (as if you have any other choice). 🙂
