According to this week’s writing challenge, our earth will be done in 3 months when some loco meteor hits it. So is this a “thing” now; is some meteor the new 12/21/12?
I like the idea of a 3-month resolution. I just have room for one: to get a full-time job. And not because of the whole needing-money-to-live thing. Sure, that’ll crop up eventually. In 2013, I want to get my own apartment and start making a legitimate effort to learn the local language, whether it’s Mandarin, Vietnamese, Cantonese or Malay. At the moment, those are my contenders: Shanghai, Saigon, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur. Which one sounds best to you?
The next two months will be telling, as I have some sort of interview in each place. After my February Break in the US – Austin, Dallas, Telluride, Tahoe, LA – I hope to start something full-time in March! (Er, maybe late-March. I’m supposed to visit my college roommate in Peru in March.)
As for 2012, Adios! WordPress.com gave me a 2012 annual report for Ohiasia and I was a little surprised by my top posts for 2012:
Lots of people asking google how long mail takes between HK and the US. Ten days, people. Ten days. And postcards from Vietnam? We’re about to find that out too. (Soon as the dang post office opens again.)
Happy New Year!!
