It’s Africell Orange Day and boy do I really wish I had an Africell t-shirt to wear. Alas, for some reason I failed to get one. I should go back and pick one of those up then, right?
It’s been one month since I left the Gambia and returned home. What have I done in that month? Well, not that much. I’ve volunteered a little at the Lexington History Museum. I’ve started research on my senior thesis topic (Drum magazine and identity in 1950s South Africa, for now anyway). Mostly, though, I’ve been reflecting on the five months I spent in West Africa, on what I miss and what I don’t miss and a million other things, and on what the whole experience means to me now and for my future. AHHH FUTURE. Don’t like thinking about that, but it’s all I seem to think about.
