Sufficiently Immersed, I am.

Home, finally and just took a good long bath. 

The past week I've: braved the wilderness, formed a tribe, lived without the internet, eaten only food we cooked, walked an hour on a dirt road to take a bath, decided that spiders and bugs are not so scary, guarded our stuff from unexpected thieves, pitched a tent, been the most tired I've ever been in my life, did number 2 in a Chowking, woken up in the middle of the night to rain water dripping on my head, sang so much songs in a span of a few days to battle the boredom the loss of technology brings, substituted Mirinda and buko juice for water, and walked around in the dark. 

I was cut, bruised, beaten, hungry, thirsty and deprived.

I live. I am invincible.
