i think i need to get out of the basement.

Two more years. Two more years. Two more years.

Why this particular mantra? Well, I’m almost 16. In December of ’12, I will be 18. When I am 18, I will move out. Quickly.

Not that I don’t like my family. It’s just that I can’t stand the idea of being controlled by them after what’s legally necessary.

Of course, I may be living with my dad in Africa for 6-12 months over my gap year, so I suppose I will technically be controlled by a parent for a year after, but let’s face it – my dad isn’t exactly a controlling kind of person. He pretty much lets me do whatever, as long as it’s not hurting me or anyone else. So I’m fine with that.

I also maaaaaaaaaaaay (emphasis on maaaaaaaaaaay) be going to Thailand this summer. I’m hoping anyway. I’m going to major in anthropology (have I said that already?) so that would be amazing. Mom’s worried as usual, but I hope I can go.


In other news, I need more music. Anyone have recommendations? Anything really good out lately?

    I recommend the song Tutu by Dufus. It’s a really good song.

    You might enjoy Jukebox the Ghost — if you like power pop, that is. Not knowing your musical tastes, maybe I’m mistaken. But take it from a guy who’s pushing 50 — Jukebox the Ghost are hot!

    I really hope you come to Thailand Hannah… It’s like Hawaii meets the Beverly Hillbillies out here… people are simple, easy going, very friendly, and breakfast, lunch and dinner all together – cost about $4. The scenery is on par with – and in some cases, better than, Maui, Oahu, and Kauai.

    The real value in coming would be to see how other people live. We could take a trip up to the northeast to see where Nou grew up and meet her family. They don’t live on a farm, but a rural place where there are little Thai villages. Awesome places…

    You’ve gotta come – if only for a month – and see this side of the world. Africa is different – but, I think Asia is just as different… maybe more so – no doubt if you see both it would be the ultimate gap year!
