Since when do I have dry elbows??

Hello everyone! Hope everyone had a great day; I did!

Let me explain the title:

For one, I’ve never had to moisturize my elbows, ever. Suddenly this morning, my elbows were pink, crackly, dry and painful. When you are thousands of miles away from home, it’s the little things that get you.

The first week, I lost our schedule. I got another one. Lost that one, too. For a type-A student who hasn’t misplaced anything in a long time, this was troubling.

The third week, I got sick. I don’t ever get sick. I’m the kid that eats food off the floor, because what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger!

What’s up with this?

For a while, this really got to me. You move to a new place, and suddenly you aren’t quite the person you thought you were.

But truthfully, what does it matter? So what, I lost a piece of paper. A little lotion in the morning won’t cramp my style, nor will a couple vitamins now and then. Things change, and sometimes you do too. It doesn’t mean that every fiber of your being is wrong; it doesn’t mean that you have to reinvent yourself whenever life throws you a curveball.

You are you. That will never change. If you can love yourself, whoever that may be, you’re already there.

On another note, here’s a picture of the beach! Beaches are nice. Especially in Oman. :)
