Happy Thanksgiving

It's just another Thursday in New Zealand, but it's certainly an important one back in the States. Or will be tomorrow, that is. I definitely have a lot to be thankful for this year.

  • I'm no longer a corporate whore.
  • I get to spend nine months in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
  • I have very supportive parents who not only taught me to be self sufficient and independent, but also let me stay in their basement and eat their food for nine months in preparation for my trip.
  • I've got great friends who actually e-mail me, asking for more blog posts, if I go more than a couple days without an update.
  • And, ultimately, I have the luxury to have dropped all my responsibilities and buy a one-way plane ticket to the other side of the world. It's not something I take for granted in the slightest.

And, yes, I will have more updates quite soon. I will have posts on many things, including my living situation, Wellington and New Zealand culture, and plenty more.

Also, if you have anything in particular you'd like to see me do or write about, or have any questions about what I'm up to, let me know. I'm happy to oblige my readers.
