I find myself in a familiar place. Sitting in my chair, wondering if I've forgotten something I should have packed. Though this time, it's a bit different. This will be the longest trip I have been on since I was a small child, as I'll be spending 6 months in China, first for a summer study abroad in Shanghai and then for a semester abroad in Kunming.
A familiar place. Just like Newark airport, where I'll be tomorrow morning, and a seat on a flight to China. All familiar places. While the places are quite familiar, the faces will not be. It will be interesting spending a semester as a "normal" college student, free from formations, parades, and wearing a uniform every day. Part of me will certainly miss it. Part of me is glad I'm getting a break. At any rate, the next 6 months promise to be quite interesting. I'll keep you all posted.
Oh, and before I forget. For those of you who may be interested in poetry, I have just published my 4th book on Amazon. It's titled "Wandering, Dreaming, Falling" and is my longest (and I daresay, best) work to date.
