Jersey Girl

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.”

    Ahhh…the college break feeling. Its a nice cozy feeling that I vaguely remember. I guess there are other samples that could be more incriminating than wedding samples. 😉 So I guess the lesson is: choose your assignments wisely? 🙂

    True, I could be writing for the thong blog instead!

    Well come back to the states. I love spending time with my family after a long awhile of being busy. I mean, I have never left long enough like you, but I understand.

    ps: I agree with window tinter [:
