Okay, one more for 2011. Are you surprised in the slightest?

December 31, 2011


My sister picked that shirt out for me last week. She said it’s basically my theme shirt and I should wear it all the time – especially with my friends. I wrote once about the time I Skyped with someone, got off the phone with them and a girl in the hostel looked at me. […]

One More Day

December 30, 2011


I just went eight days without writing, and I left you all hanging with a classy one. I know. This past week has been filled with flights and food, friends and family. Ups and downs. Excitement and worries. Reuniting with past. Living in the moment. Planning the immediate future. Reliving 2011. Daydreaming of 2012. I […]

I’d Like To.

December 23, 2011


Oh, I’d like to do a write-up of what it’s like to take a trip to the salon to get waxed. For appropriate blog material, I’d write about the time I got my eyebrows waxed. I’d like to do a write-up about the relaxing music in the background and the little waxing woman’s hug as […]

How is Home?

Sometimes I wonder if I’m not backpacking stranger lands. Just now. “Don’t worry Nae, it’s waterproof.”

Occupying Orange County

December 21, 2011


For anyone who got this post in his or her e-mail and was confused as to why it was titled 2510, I forgot to title this one before hitting publish. WordPress came up with the number. A commenter today asked me what it’s like to be home. Six days in, here are some basic thoughts: […]

Simply Having a Wonderful, (Versatile?) Christmas Time

December 21, 2011


While I was in Europe, I wrote a lot but read very little. I got behind in responding to comments and questions, and I am still catching up. I wasn’t following a single other blog – I’m working on it. That said, it’s about time I responded to one fun thing. In the past three […]

To Be Five Again

It’s great to be home.

Coming Home (Part Two)

December 18, 2011


I need a bumper sticker that says “When you can’t sleep, blog.” It’s 6a.m. Sunday in California and there is no reason I should be awake. Up at 2:30, 4:30, 5:30 for good… so here we go. E-mail subscribers, I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s post where I managed to use “hear” instead of “here,” “their” […]

Coming Home (Part One)

December 17, 2011


It’s 8:38a.m. I’m drinking coffee in my own mug at the kitchen table. I’m eating frozen waffles. I’m home. I really need this coffee… and I really need to sleep. While in hostels, I got in the terrible habit of not sleeping through the night. My friend called it “power-napping” across Europe – I became […]

Twenty-two and Four Months: Going Home

December 14, 2011


A spider traveled the world to see where she should make her home. She left her heart in so many places, she created the world wide web. If you thought that was corny, you should see the children’s books I’m trying to publish. I made that video two years ago and had forgotten about it […]
