where do i go from here?

second posts seem to be even more intimidating than the first: where do i go from here? how do i transition into talking about all of the randomness i had in mind? wait, what was this blog about again? ūüėČ

i was once told that you don’t know where you’re going until you know where you came from. i’m not sure if it was a joke, and i’m not entirely sure how i feel about it if wasn’t a joke. all i know is that it fits here. well, not really – but reallyish.

with that being said, i have been wanting to participate in the genographic project ever since my friend, diane, told me about it.¬†national geographic and ibm teamed up to create this project that will ultimately help ‘to better understand the genetic and migratory history of the human race.’ and because i am a major pseudo-nerd, i wanted to better understand my own family’s migratory history out of africa. so, for the past few years it has been on my unwritten, quirky version of a bucket list.

well, it turns out that al actually listens to all of my random babbling sometimes and surprised me with a participation kit for ‘the genographic project’ for my 28th birthday. {what can i say? some girls dream about jewelry for their birthday – and some girls dream about swabbing their mouths for the sake of learning about their family history.}¬†anyway! the participation kit finally came in a few days ago and i am super ready to get started. {that is, after i brush my teeth; i don’t want them knowing i just had some pepperoni.}

so yeah, i guess the question now is no longer “where do i go from here” but “where did i come from?”¬†{yeah, i’ve got grandma jokes for days.}

i will keep you all posted on the process and the outcome once i receive it. looking forward to this adventure!

<3 always,

p.s. because i would have done no justice in explaining this all to you, you can just read more about the genographic project here:   https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/genographic/index.html}

has anyone else participated in the genographic project? if so, what did you think?
