Good news: I'm still alive.
I've spent the past week getting to know family that I haven't seen in 6-18 years from South Africa.
My aunt has been playing match maker with every boy she sees pass me by. She tells me, "Smile! they looking at you!" - in her half english-africaans accent. it's too funny not to laugh at her efforts.
This week has been alright. Life is to short. Positivity and strength will get you a lot further than hiding from your problems will.
so I can cross off - see family from S.A. - from my summer To Do list.
Sky Diving is next! My little brother and his girlfriend have made plans to go with me. our date is set for August 23rd.
