What I Was Doing In Asia…

I mentioned in one of my previous posts that I had been living in Southeast Asia for the past two years, and had recently returned back home in July when I wrote and stated that I would be taking a break from blogging. Well, now I’m back from my mini-break and I just wanted to fill you all in on what I was doing while I was there.

The short answer is that I was volunteering.

I had two assignments: my primary assignment was to teach English at a local college, and my second assignment (which I chose personally and that was extremely close to my heart), was mentoring young girls at an orphanage, teaching them English, art, and some life skills.

All in all I am beyond glad that I had the chance to live in a developing country and to step out of my comfort zone because this experience (more so than any other country that I have ever been to or lived in) really pushed me in ways that I didn’t think possible.

Now that I’m back at home, I feel refreshed and ready to apply myself in new ways.

While I was away, in my spare time I was working on some really cool projects which brings me to this new phase that I’m currently in in my life: continuing to mentor young people, but also starting my own online boutique and writing my first book.

There is so much stuff that I could say about my trip, I have a gazillion pictures that I took and could share, and so many interesting stories that I could recount, but I don’t want to bore you more than I probably already have by talking about myself too much, so I’ll just wrap this post up by saying that I’m looking forward to this next phase of my life and I hope that you all will join me!

My next post is going to be a moving announcement, and from here on out I will no longer be blogging here as Virgin Monologuez, but you will now be able to find me at my new company website: www.dorothyalexa.com

Thank you to each and every one of you for all of the messages, emails, and love that you have showed me since I started this blog.

-Hope to see you at my new home J
