A month of America

Ahh, America. The sweet smell of LAX, the neck stiffening traffic, the carbs, the large people, the beach, the feeling of familiarity. It is all beautiful.

I landed 3 days ago and the one thing that keeps wringing through my mind is the word, 'finally'. After a full year of teaching in Korea, I have finally come home...for a month,

My fiancé Liz and I are doing a month long tour through the states for weddings, family and friends. We spent two days in California, now we are cruising in Nashville for a wedding, then we head to Raleigh for chocolate factory manufacturing, fly up to NYC for my sisters engagement party and finally fly back to California for two weeks of living easy.

It should be a great ride.

The Whiff of Homesickness

You know it's bad when a puddle of water makes you think of home.

This weekend it officially cooled down. The breeze's actually felt like California and I had very distinct whiff of homesickness. Even walking by bodies of water ranging from fountains to a brown sewage puddle makes me think, "Man I want to go surfing right now."

It also does not help that one of my students rocks these surf-chic style T-shirts everyday at school. His name is Aiden and while his body seems stunted at about 1-foot-9 inches high, his head is as a big as mine. Making him the cutest little dude of all time.

But again, looking at him only makes me want to surf something.


Good thing I'm home in 3 WEEKS!
