For now, I write this thing. Also, this other thing and this other thing. In addition to my constant pastimes of overthinking grammar and getting far too emotionally invested in the successes and failures of particular sports teams, I’ve been spending the most recent phase of my life here in Bogotá, Colombia. For all of 2012, I worked as a volunteer teacher with an organization called WorldTeach. It was an incredible year, filled with mysterious new fruits, sassy Colombian teenagers and a few too many public transportation mishaps. As the end of the year approached, I realized I wasn’t nearly ready to go home to the States. So now I’m back with a vengeance, writing for a living just like a real person. Hence, this blog, because the People Back at Home will not be satisfied unless I bestow upon them the occasional update from my constantly thrilling life here in mountain country. So here we are.
Oh, and for the record: yes, you can, in fact, purchase peanut butter in Bogotá. But it’s not the good kind.
