Happy Thanksgiving!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, this Thanksgiving will be spent eating Mexican food in Hong Kong.  A bizarre combination, made even more so given that this year, more than ever, I'll be celebrating with the same mindset as the Pilgrims way back in 1621.

Not exactly Rockwell-esque, but pretty damn good.  I'm thankful ;)

As these past ten months have been a gruelling climb towards creating a new life: moving my shit out of my apartment in Portland, Oregon, saying goodbye to all of the friends I've made there over the past nine years, traveling to Barcelona to study for the TESOL, and then rather circuitously ending up tutoring in Hong Kong.  

And although the journey has been rocky and the foundation I've achieved feels shaky, like I'm the little pig whose house is built of straw, I am making it!  

And for that I am grateful.
