Thai With a German

1 Jan

Good morning evening and happy new year to everyone! I am looking forward to posting my thoughts about 2012, as well as the upcoming year, when I get back to Washington, D.C. Right now I am coming to you from gate C2 at Sea-Tac airport and we should be boarding soon! We boarded so quickly after I finished that sentence, I didn’t get to finish my post! Right now I am home in DC and just waiting for my laundry to be done before I can go to sleep!

The flight from Seattle was smooth, though the 5:30 AM wake up call was way too early, especially after staying up until 1:30 to ring in the new year.


Luckily, I managed to snooze a little bit on the plane, though not enough to really feel rested. I am jealous of those who have no trouble sleeping when flying – I can never get comfortable! I brought some snacks so I didn’t have to buy food on the plane, because it’s so very overprice and just doesn’t taste very good.


I am not looking forward to going back to work, but I am happy to be getting back into my routine – I still can’t believe it has been almost two weeks since I set foot inside a gym.

Despite the routine disruption, one of my favorite things about going home was getting to see friends I haven’t seen in awhile.

The other night I had a chance to see my friend Hanna at dinner. I first met her when she came to my high school as an exchange student from Germany when I was a sophomore. Since then we have been in constant contact and I have met up with her in three different countries this past year!


Right now she is in Seattle as an exchange student gain, but this time for grad school. We decided to meet up close to campus at a student restaurant staple called Thai 65. I ordered what I always do, pad see ew with tofu. I could venture out and try something new but I figure, if it ain’t broke, why fix it?


I was glad to be able to see her because she will be back in Germany by the time I get back to Seattle for another visit. I just love that we are still friends after so many years!
