Strange thing about a blog: you write something and people actually read it. At least that's what I hope the people that come here do. Lately, I've been writing about past experiences, moments that made me say "Oh Sh!t," and times gone by that are forever fragmented in my heart. This blog has been a blessing to me; allowing me to meet amazing people and further expanding my horizons by writing on topics that I dare not share with even my own mother--yet I share them with you, my dear readers.
Growing up, I used to think journals were only for girls! I'd have the biggest frown on my face when the teacher yelled out, "alright boys and girls, it's journal time!" Man I hated her! I just wanted to give her my two cents, but I never did (lunch money). Gripping my standard orange H2 pencil, I started every entry with "Today...." It always started with the word "Today." Unknowingly, I followed that rule with everything I wrote, even in college. It wasn't until a prof one day asked me why I began my essay on World War II with the word "Today" that I realized I needed a change in style.
Today, I found out that the suits at work are shipping me abroad...again. I'm starting to think they get a chuckle from seeing me eat duck embryo's and fermented fish cubes. It's either that or they can't stand having me around the office. Every morning when I arrive I get this western stare, almost as if they're stripping me with their eyes, trying to break me to see if I'll confess to doing something dumb again. Hey, it wasn't me who stole the air freshener from the men's washroom!
Walking to my office, co-workers would clear a path for me--making sure I have enough room to navigate thru an empty hallway to get to my cave. Do I stink or something? Shutting the door, I realize I have the best job in the world because my office is decorated with Sponge Bob Squarepants action figures, a Babe Ruth baseball that I signed myself, and a plaque I stole off someones wall. Damn, I hope my boss doesn't read my blog...
Anyways, yes...I got a new foreign assignment today: Vancouver, Indonesia, Malaysia. Stay tuned...I'll be blogging.
