    I cant believe you’ll be home so soon. Its gotta be freaky transitioning from the european lifestyle to this one. Traffic, strip-malls & Starbucks … horray!

      @lifestudent: I know! Me neither! It’ll be here before I know it. I am looking forward to traffic, actually, because it means that I will have a car instead of a bike for grocery shopping. Cannot wait for that. Cannot wait.

      @Lorraine: Blog funk. I hear ya. I have had several ideas for blogging in the last few months, but when it came down to it, I just didn’t feel like writing them down. Something snapped in me the other day, though, and I think I’m out of the slump now. :)
