( 9:55 PM ) teahouse
Well, I am still here but haven't posted again since my return. Until now.
The truth is, I'm ashamed that I lost my digital camera and can't post any photos of my Central America trip.
I was going to make a huge deal out of revealing the COUNTRY I visited along with the photos. But I'm a lame-o, so you'll just have to wait a few more days while the film develops to find out.
What have I been doing since my return to the US of A?
Stressing out about the fact that my birthday is coming up; I'm going to be THIRTY TWO. For some reason, that number is really wigging me out, much more than 30 ever did.
Have I really accomplished by age 32 all of the things I wanted to?
When I was 5 years old, I thought that by this age I'd: (1) have a couple of kids, (2) live in a house with the coolest backyard treehouse in the neighborhood and (3) be able to eat all of the chocolate I wanted to all day.
Well, (3) is true, I guess. I have been eating a lot of chocolate this week, because I just re-read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and I keep reading about how he eats chocolate to regain his strength after trying the Patronus Charm. So when I read that, I want chocolate. I need to keep up my strength, too, like Harry.
Oh, and I'm going through a career crisis of sorts. What am I doing and why am I here? Would my 5-year-old self be proud of where I am today?
