My life has changed in many ways since coming to the Philippines, both internally and externally. I would like to share with you some of these ways. Enjoy!
Eating American Food
Then: Whatev / Now: I have to eat all of it now!
Then: No prob / Now: I don’t even remember wearing all of these clothes
Electricity Going Out
Then: No biggie / Now: Jesus take me now
Ants in My Food
Then: Whaaat?! / Now: Just scrape those off and dig in
Then: Fun in the sun / Now: ESCAPE the sun!
Then: Are you serious? / Now: Hey, it works
Showering Three Times a Day
Then: Why? / Now: Because…
Spiders in Shower
Then: Ahhhh! / Now: Killed that sucker…
Being Called at on the Street
Then: Mental rampage / Now: Sorry dude
Then: Rollin’ in my car / Now: I found blood on the floor of the jeepney this week
Noises Outside My Room
Then: What noise? / Now: “I’m sorry mom I can’t hear you over Skype because of all animals”
