i'm bringing awkward back

well. it's happened again. i am going back to the great land o' chiner. i have graduated from college and am now a 'real' person, whatever that means. and, so tomorrow my new journey commences. on the eve prior to my departure i am celebrating america... mashed potatoes, beer and american idol. oh, that ellen is so tricky with her delivery of good news; certainly keeps all of us on the egde of our seats. anyways, tomorrow i board oceanic, uh, i mean, american airlines 289 to shanghai--i know, i am hilarious with my 'mistakes'. after a week of training, i will move to xi'an for at least five months. all of you loyal readers out there might remember xi'an as the city where i fulfilled my 'lost in translation' karaoke fantasy, so, needless to say, i am thrilled to get back to that terracotta-in' city. it's been awhile since i've done this and i don't know what else to say, so, um, yeah, errr, more to come...

SO EXCITED. that was so funny how you used "oceanic" instead of "american" airlines. don't break too many hearts over there.
