Siyah in Turkey
A new blog for a 6 month adventure in Turkey:
I guess I’ll be blogging. Not really sure how I feel about it but I suppose since communication will be limited, this is a nice way for you guys to keep up with my life — For those of you who even care that is. Anywaydoe, I’ve survived the packing process. I was limited to only TWO bags for these next 6 months unless I wanted to pay an utterly ridiculous $200 a pop for each extra bag…
But middle finger to Swiss Air, I successfully packed everything I needed in two suitcases and one carry on. Figuring out how to fit it all was definitely a test of mental fortitude but your girl was victorious and now you can consider me an expert on strategic packing — Come see about me.
I will admit I’m starting to get nervous and sad that I’m leaving behind everything and everybody I know for a bit but that’s normal. I have no idea what to expect — I’ve never been to Turkey, I don’t speak the language, and I don’t know the culture. However, I have eaten Şiş Kebabs before… So basically I’m ignorant as Hell when it comes to all things Turkish. And therein lies the rub, my good friends. But this is a learning experience and I’ll be a better person when its all said and done. And lest we not forget that I can write “Pretty. Witty. Girly. Worldy.” in all my social networking bios and really mean the “Worldy” part. These are the things that really matter, people.
Some of you know that I gave up the “N Word” for Lent but in trying to find a name for this blog, I simply could not resist the temptation — It was overwhelming.
