I’M ABANDONING SIGNAL, WIFI AND MY CATS (fear not, they have a human to look after them) FOR THE OUTSIDE WORLD.
Before we get into this I’d like to assure you that I WILL RETURN (if I don’t get eaten by a sheep or something). Also, I think it’s important to let you all know that, for once, I’m not being dragged kicking and screaming out of fictional worlds and into the real one. I am actually WILLINGLY leaving my bedroom (yes, really) and delving into the world of long car rides, many photographs and fynbos (that’s a type of plant indigenous to Cape Town, just in case you didn’t know).
My family and I are going to a farm (don’t think of an actual farm. Yes, there are sheep and yes, there are animals and bugs and large expanses of land but there is also WIFI (I think. I hope. I may have been lying before – sorry) and a big house and wonderful food and I will survive it, I promise). Don’t worry, you won’t be missing too much of me. I’ll only be gone a few days but you bet that when I return I will have pictures to show you and stories to tell (hopefully).
Back to the point of this post though: I’M LEAVING.
It’s beautiful where we’re going. (I’d hate to sound like I’m bragging here but I live in a beautiful country. Where we’re going is even more wonderful than usual.) I plan to do many things while I’m away and one of them (at the top of my list actually, as you can see) is to take pictures. Fear not, I will share them with you upon my return.
I’m so tired. I don’t know why though I mean it’s completely normal to go to bed at 1am and wake up at 5am, right? Seriously though, while away I plan to sleep and sleep and sleep some more.
I’m taking an entire bag full of books and I plan to read them all while away. I’m beyond excited. *throws confetti* *bakes cake* *sings happy birthday to no one in particular* *shares cake with everyone* *hugs everyone. Even the sheep that will be on the farm*
Unless you follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Book Amino you probably don’t know that I need to write and edit and proof read and do all the things – which I plan to do while I’m on a farm in the middle of nowhere.
Now, the bad, terrible, horrible reasons I don’t want to go
(I know bad, terrible and horrible are all synonyms. I used them for EMPHASIS.)
I despise moths. I’m terrified, actually and I know (because moths have a habit of following me wherever I go) there will be moths at the farm and they will most probably attack me (fluttering around the light bulb in the same room as me counts as attacking). So, I’m not excited about the moths.
I don’t know if you caught this already but I’m going to a farm. Generally, I don’t like the outside world. And I don’t like not having WIFI (#FirstWorldProblems) but the farm is quite nice and the baby sheep are really cute and so are the dogs. So…I guess it won’t be all that bad.
There won’t be signal (unless I hike a mountain and climb onto my grandmothers shoulders while flailing around like a lunatic trying to get enough bars – I don’t think my grandmother would be very happy with me if I did that?) I won’t be online for a few days and that’s really the main point of this post.
I’ll be M.I.A for a little while.
