I’m at the airport. I’d be really excited about my trip, but right now I’m just blown away at how good Y! Messenger is. I’m connected through T-Mobile Hotspot and making phone calls through Y! Messenger. The quality is fantastic–way, way better than I was expecting. I made a bunch of calls to the publisher and things for the book are coming along nicely. It’s pretty funny; there are so many people involved that my deadline keeps getting pushed, even though I can finish pretty much any time now. In a way, it’s good to have work while I’m in Thailand. I need to see if I can live there AND work there AND live with someone AND not make them crazy AND have them not make me crazy. This will be a nice barometer or litmus test (your choice).
But yes! I’m going to the place that’s felt like home most of the year. I’m really excited and a little nervous. There are lots of uncomfortable social situations and even more potential drama waiting for me. Hopefully I can avoid all that and just enjoy the many things I love about home.
