Let me bring us back to 2005.
Hello, Lo of 2005. What have you done?
You went by “Lorie,” then you removed the “e” and it’s been “Lori” ever since. You’re a mess. In fact, you feel the exact same loneliness and brokenness from that time in 2005. Right? You just left everything you knew (for 2 years, anyway, since you’re gonna be moving 19 more times right after this), and then plunged into a culture you do not know, a language you do not speak, and a country whose airport smells like food. Whose country airport smells like food????
But after all the loneliness, suffering, learning to speak a language that will later on influence what you want to do in life, etc. etc.
*insert motivational quote here*
But today I feel low.
2017 Lo feels low.
It’s okay, though. I’ve gone through a lot the last few years.
I forgot what I was headed to with this post.
I’m gonna go nap for a bit and do a re-write later.
