A while back, my bestie asked me to name some things that I’m looking forward to seeing and doing when I return home to America next month.
It wasn’t a hard thing to think about.
Of course, I’m looking forward to seeing my dear friends and family, whom I haven’t seen during my entire service. They have held me down and allowed me to live out this dream that I’ve been living for the past two and a half years.
I’m also looking forward to eating bean burritos at Chipotle, looking at the nail polish display at Sephora, browsing the clearance aisles at Target and eating tomato and mozzarella sandwiches at Panera Bread.
Add these to the list: electricity, hot showers, unlimited internet, my car, paved roads, infrastructure and civilization.
Although I’ll greatly miss Lesotho, I have exactly one more month before I get to indulge in all of these things that I miss dearly in America.
