Welcome to the land of fame excess

Am I gonna fit in?

Back home and it feels so good! During my time in college I went home three of four years for the holidays. Since we were in the middle of the season and I lived on the other side of the country I usually had 48 hours in Los Angeles, CA. I lost about 12 hours in the air flying back and forth then when you factor in the time difference even more time. This time I was home for two weeks. I didn’t even know where to begin. My first stop was Jamba Juice (If you haven’t been, go and order a Caribbean Passion… you’ll thank me later). I was then welcomed with a wonderful home cooked meal by my mother. I missed her cooking dearly…for some reason when I try the dishes she usually makes it doesn’t come out the same.


The rest of time at home was great I was able to catch up with family and friends. I was able to drive again and I was able to hit all my favorite food spots. I truly enjoyed LA but didn’t miss the traffic. Although it was great to be home, I was excited to head back to Ireland and finish up.
