Besides getting stuff together, I’m getting ready to leave the country by spending time with people.
I spent September through December with my mom’s side of the family in Northern California. I finally met my half-sister (in Portland, OR) in January. Shortly after I returned, I went on a trip with my parents and Aunt Barbara to North Carolina to see more of my dad’s side of the family. This past weekend, I went down to Newport News to spend time with my cousin Jim and played in his Vampire: The Masquerade LARP.
Today I spent with my parents, watching the Super Bowl, eating junk food, and drinking some delicious American craft beer.
These are the times I will cherish while I am away.
