Erin- I copied you. Amy Blog





I am: a singe white female

I think: that i didn't prepare near enough for my 5k race May 11th and that i'm really going to regret that 2k's into it.
I know: i need to go to school and get a 'real' job, but sometimes i think i'll never get this time back and maybe is should go back to UGanda and worry about school later.
I want: to write a book, go to every country in sub saharan Africa, have a wheaten terrier named juma (after my rafting guide on the nile river) and have a room in the attic of my house that i'll buy one day and be just like my mom one day.
I hate: road rage, hot when i'm sleeping, plane rides home from Uganda, when peole ask my dumb questions about Uganda like "so do they like, have cars there?"
I miss: Rachel Arielle Michelle and my cords that i left for a friend in Uganda but still think about all the time.
I fear: bears, driving under trains, having all my limbs cut off, never going back to UG
I feel: like sometimes i talk too much about Uganda and people get bored of me.
I hear: sophie laughing when she would come over to sleepover with georgie and they would tell the tv they were going to beat it.
I smell: like i didnt wash this shirt the last time i went running.
I crave: lays wavy regular chips and helluva good chip dip. constantly. also mcchickens.
I search: on google. for everything.
I regret: nothing. except maybe not sucking up that extra 500 bucks and going on safari with Beth just because i know she would have loved it.
I love: my 3 pillows, new socks from costco and when i'm sitting in the ice cream shack and its raining and i know i can get a lot of solid reading in.
I ache: for sophie and her dad whose missing out on the best girl in the world.
I care:
I always: write chapters of my book in my head and then try really hard to remember the things i wrote but never can.
I am not: good at saying sorry.....right beth???
I believe: me and beth are going to be old ladies one day,living in the same nursing home, and she'll still be trying to get me to learn how to play crib and i'll still be bossing her around and cleaning when we have visitors.
I sing: all the time and i make up songs all the time.
I cry: only when i'm super upset or watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
I fight: with my sister all the time about dumb stuff.
I write: random stuff i hear with my pointer finger on my right hand all the time. and if my hand is in use, i'll use my right foot. and sometimes, i really like to write words inthe air with both pointers simultaneously.
I win: at everything. and if i dont, i get mad, and try to ruin whatever it was i didnt win at, for the winner
I lose: rarely and if i do...watch out!
I never: can sleep good if a fan isn't blowing cold air into my face. even in the winter.
I listen: to chrisitan music on the sundays i dont go to church because it makes me feel less guilty that way.
I can usually be found: checking MC and Jacksons, Phin's, Christopher and Katies, Mia and Joeys, and Rachel and Arielle's blogs. daily.
I am scared: that i'll live an ordinary life.
I need: to look at my africa photos a little less than i used to....
I am happy about: the fact that i can look at my africa photos a little less than iused to because i think that means i'm learning to be content.
I hope:that i can make a difference.

darling auntie amy... i love your heart for Uganda... i love knowing that i'm not the only crazy weirdo who is obsessed with uganda -- that somewhere on the other side of this continent, where it's wayyy colder, someone else is missing the same little people as me. I'm glad you tagged yourself :) Please come visit soon!!!!

I LOVE your post! I also love that I'm not the only one who thinks I talk too much about Africa and others think I'm strange! I love hearing your heart. I know God will use you in amazing ways on whatever continent he places you!
