It has been too long!

Although I would love to say "I don't know where the time went," the fact is: I do.  I have not been spending it here posting that's a given. My last post was about my best friend's wedding and that was up over 10 days ago. Shame on me.  However, to justify, I haven't come across anything worthy to blog about.  Now I have. Sort of.

To start off I would like to rehash a few things.  Firstly my Great American Road Trip.  That has been discontinued, DOA, no chance of resuscitation.  Instead, Olithia and I have come to a few conclusions:
A) We discovered that we were being a bit too ambitious to venture on a 30 some day road trip when neither of us has been on one before.
B) Instead of one long trip, it would make more sense that we split the continental US into quadrants and road trip one section at a time.
C) We will be headed off to China as an alternative.  (More on that to follow)
D) We will spend less money therefore be able to save more money for our future road trip. Hurray!

As I mentioned in my last post, I went to my friend's wedding solo.  Olithia posted this and boy it sure put my feelings into words.  I'm in the same boat as her and it's good to know I'm not alone.  Though I have to admit, I am quite a romantic and maybe a bit too much of one.  But that's okay with me.

Finally.  Trip to China!  My parents and I haven't had a chance to go on a true vacation in quite awhile, especially one overseas.  So part of this trip is my graduation present!  The fact that my great friend Olithia will be with me makes it even better.  We will be spending 10 days in China and then some time in Hong Kong as well.  I am super excited because a classmate from college recently moved there for a job and I can't wait to catch up with her in person.  Plus through my current job, I met a chef that will be in China/Hong Kong during the same time.  Small world, so we might meet up too.  It's nice to be around food lovers especially in a foreign land.

Lastly, so I wasn't done, I have an interview!  It pains me that the position I have now will be non existent after early October so I have begun to look for other routes.  It is early, but it never hurts to get a head start right?
