Back to Reality


“Back to life. Back to reality.” After a glorious three-week break from village life (one week in Maseru and 2 weeks in Cape Town), I find myself back in my rondavel living as a mountain girl. I wish I could say that I’m happy to be back, but I’m in a bit of a “post vacation funk”. This always happens after getting back from a vacation; the adjustment period is always a bit rough, but it all gets better in due time. Being away from my routine and daily rituals for such a long time requires a good chunk of time to get back in sync with it all again. By the time school starts again (31 July) I’ll be back to my full Miss Thato self and ready to take on this last semester full-on!

It’s quite surreal to think about how much time has passed by already and how (little) time I have left. I have promised myself to live day by day and savor every moment I can because I don’t want to spend my remaining time thinking of tomorrow or leave Lesotho with any regrets. In just about a month I’ll be off to my COS (Close of Service) Conference. While there I will find out about what t’s need to be crossed and what i’s need to be dotted before leaving the country AND I will also determine the exact day to peace out. How did this happen? Soon enough I’ll be off onto my next adventure, but with the memories and lessons I’ve learned forever engrained on my heart and in my memory.
