Trip Back Home

It’s been a slow day at work so I figured that I should do an update. Plus typing in Word makes it look like I’m busy.

At the end of August, I went back to America for the first time in roughly nine months. This was the longest time that I’ve been away from home. Surprisingly, it wasn’t that strange to be home. A bunch of building and shops had changed but nothing was really that different. My parents invited all of my relations up for a cooked out the one day. I went to New York City to see a couple friends from university and saw an Orioles-Yankees baseball game. The Orioles won. I also went to the new casino with my family.

My one year anniversary at work passed while I was in America.

It was actually stranger going back to Stirling. There was this sense of everything being familiar yet still slightly foreign. It didn’t seem like I have lived here for over a year now.

I can’t believe that I am trying to get out of a free trip to America. Someone at Colgate asked me to go speak on what I do, and I semi-jokingly said yes if the school paid for my ticket. He thought I was serious and is trying to find someone to buy me a ticket. I really don’t want to go though.
