(Pictured: Lily probably telling me something sassy about how my lesson is lame)
I feel like many of you have been somewhat skeptical about my good friend Lily. You think to yourself, what? a cynical 5 year old in Thailand? Is Hannah making this up? Well I am not. I have a secretly filmed interview with this unreal child to prove to the world that a child with my spirit and demeanor exists halfway around the world. She refused to give a full interview claiming that "it would be too boring" but I asked her some basic questions with hilarious answers.
When I was first coming to Thailand I was so discouraged. I felt like everything was wrong. I felt as if it was the wrong time, that I was placed in the wrong group, and that I was going to the wrong place. I was worried about being in the smallest ILP group EVER(which has ended up being a blessing), I was worried about the timing of it all...my life was so stellar before I left. I was even worried that maybe Thailand was the wrong country for me. But if there is anything that I know, I know that I was meant to meet Lily. She is my kindred soul and I am already so freaking in love with this child. She makes most days worth it. Everyday I get to literally laugh out loud with Lily. She is more of a friend than a student at this point. Although we are 18 years apart, I find myself being totally fine with grabbing a coffee with her and just talking( I'm sure she drinks black coffee, that's just who she is). She is all spunk, from her facial expressions, to her adult answers. If I ever have a little girl, I will PRAY that she turns out just like Lily. So here you go.

Next stop Thailand (and a couple of connecting flights)
