Whew, I’m back in the US from Singapore to take care of some business and for a quick visit. 26 hours in transit- yeech! I bet I looked as bad as I do in my passport photo by the time I arrived. I hadn’t really planned on heading back into the US until after my nail course was done, but some stuff came up that would be easier to deal with in person.
It’s very weird…for the last decade since I’ve been living in Asia, I’ve always been the only white person in the room. Now there are nothing but white people around (yes, I’m in rural New England). It’s neither here nor there, but it’s an odd feeling. I do miss the energy and manic rhythm of Asia when I’m not there. I’ll be heading back in 2 weeks, but till then I’ve monopolized the dining room table at my folk’s place and I am painting my butt off for my shop-reopening on April 1. Thanks, jet lag.
One bonus about being home is I can pick up a bunch of my nail goodies that I ordered online, since most suppliers don’t ship nail polish overseas. I’m excited to try out the new magnetic polishes since I have no experience with them. What I really want to do is make my own unique magnets. I’ll have to experiment- should be fun.
