Time flies when you’re having fun and it sure has flown by this past year. So many things have happened in just the last 12 months! I’ve visited a few different countries, got a new job, moved across the world, partied ’til the sun came up, swam in the clear blue ocean water and so much more! Where I will be in a year, I have no idea. I’ve found so many things I love about this island and some things that I really dislike. Sometimes I imagine what I will tell my future kids about my life in Guam!
I remember when all we had was the scooter and we’d pack it with our laundry to take to the laundromat or the times we went grocery shopping and forgot we had the scooter, so we’d have to figure out ways to load all of our groceries on the scooter. I remember the first time I saw the ocean and how I couldn’t believe it was real. I remember how I went swimming in the warm water and watched the sunset over the ocean thinking, “I must be in heaven.” I remember falling in love. The first time I saw a coconut crab and had one as pet, I remember being terrified when it escaped from its aquarium! I remember the first month I arrived, my body couldn’t adjust to the humidity! Yes, it’s gross but I sweated like a man for WEEKS! haha I remember so many good times here and now I can’t really imagine going back to my other life. I think I’d like to live on an island forever. I’m an island girl now!
