I flew up to New Jersey yesterday to see my family. The upside to the visa hassles and life upheaval is that I get to visit my folks! It’s been just under a year since I’ve seen my family. Now I can eat my mom’s cooking, read Cosmo, speak English all the time, get on Wikipedia and the other banned sites, and drink milk.
While I’m home and in job limbo, an editor/friend sent me a little blogging work. It’s mostly short assignments for a blog network, including some ghost work for a wedding site. Now that I’m based in the US, I can receive review samples, for some reason no one wanted to ship freebies to our hutong!
Anyway, I’m settling down to eating delicious American food and catching up with my folks. It feels like being home on college break again. I was chatting with my mom as she flipped through the mail.
“We got some wedding invitation samples for you!!!” she announced.
“Calm down, Mom, they’re for work. Really.”
