For those of you who don’t know who “that guy” is – its Jonathan Shields. Now I have only known Jon since I have been back in the states but he has already made quite an impression. The kid (and by “kid” I mean that he is the same age as me) is going over to Africa too, so I have been helping him get ready. At first, I really freaked him out – but now, the feeling has reversed. Most of our time has been spent with him being absolutely ridiculous and me trying to stay on my toes. It is exciting. I haven’t been around that much positivity and energy in a long time. Refreshing and yet a little tiring all at the same time. But the kid is a bundle of sunshine and I am so glad that I get to be his friend for this month of overlap in the states.
