a few more details

SO as promised, here is some more info on what I have been doing as of late.
The last month or so I’ve been working for Lindblad Expeditions they are a great company to work for and I’ve been enjoying my time.

It’s funny I go from being Cinderella cleaning toilets to being a forty year old waitress. At least that is what I pretend- in the morning I carry around a Cinderella bucket and pretend that all the animals are my friends. In the afternoon, I transform into a forty-year-old bitter waitress with a smokers cough. It’s a pretty funny job for me to have and most of you would get a real kick out of watching me in action. Luckily, my social skills are up to par so I can make up for my complete lack experience and grace when it comes to waiting tables. Every week I have a few couples who are mesmerized by my charms, smile, and tell me it’s cute that I spill soup on their laps, or drop knives on them.

Actually that is my favorite part of the job is schmoozing it up with the guests- for the most part they are amazing people and are have a lot of interesting life experiences and as most of you know I am always up to hear other people’s story.

On days when I feel bad about having to clean up after people’s explosive diarrhea, I head up to the bridge where the captain lets me drive the boat; it’s good for my ego. The captain reminds me a lot of my father and I hope that they get to meet one day because I think a solid friendship would certainly be made. After the captain finishes reading the morning news, I’ll ask him what’s going on in the world and he responds by saying something charming like “nothing new the towel heads are still blowing each other up.” Yet he’s able to say it in a manner that is not as offensive as it sounds.

Recently I started a relationship with a younger man, shocking I know. I’m not sure where it is going or where I want to go but for now, I’m fine with that. It seems that most things in my life are fully of uncertainty and I have come accustomed to that- I like being open to life and having the flexibility to take or leave things as they come.

At any rate I’m going to sign off for now, I’ll be back more maybe next time with some actual stories of my life’s happenings.

I don’t know how to post replies to my messages so don’t worry if you can’t figure it out either but if you do know how to do make you could post it for others.

It sounds like you're having quite the adventure!

If you find time, I'd love to hear how you decided to travel to Thailand.
