Back from a 2 year stint abroad!

Back from a 2 year stint abroad!

Hey Everyone! I just got back from two years abroad - 1.5 years living and teaching games programming in New Zealand followed by a 4.5 month trip through the South Pacific, Southeast Asia, China, North Korea and Japan. What a wonderful experience! I feel like a completely changed person now, and am even more unsure of where home is anymore! =P I'm settling back in San Francisco - there's a lot to set up, but hopefully I'll get back to "normal" life easily.

So I was exhausted when I got back, and slept for 12 hours, being awoken by my alarm clock for work. I had a good vacation, although I was sick for two of the three weeks! I got bad food poisoning the first week, and as I was just about recovered, I ended up with a bad cold! Well, at least the last week was OK, although it had its share of problem
