Happy Thanksgiving

5 Things I’m Thankful for this Thanksgiving: 

  1. Not having to weather the crazy travel that was yesterday (and today);
  2. My grandparents calling Brian my “friend,” even though we all know who he is; 
  3. Conversations about poop with my brothers and cousins because what else do you talk about with a bunch of dudes and a girl who works on a gastrointestinal virus; 
  4. These people; and 
  5. Not getting “storked” by Team Uganda.  

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s been 3 months since I left Uganda. Now I’m in Atlanta, navigating a new city while working in the laboratory at the CDC on research that will (hopefully) affect global health. I know time only moves forward but I can’t help but miss the life and the people in UG.
