I’m home. Home! I love home.
I’m sitting at my kitchen table and the only sound I hear is the clock ticking on the wall. Soon, though, it will be joined by the air conditioning.
My dad cooked two great meals today, and even served me a small omelet for breakfast this morning. (How do you spell “omelet” by the way? I thought it was “omelette”. Blogger thinks otherwise.)
I watched 30 Rock and napped on the couch this afternoon.
And this evening, we had some friends over and visited for a few hours, all in the comfort of our living room.
It’s so good to be here.
I stopped posting because my writing was becoming increasingly bitter. Every time I sat down to compose something, all that would come out was a stream of vile obscenities directed mainly at Jordanian men, Jordanian internet, and Jordanian taxi drivers. I imagine I’ll post them someday–perhaps in whole–but for now I want to remember the good things.
Like ice cream. So much good ice cream in Jordan.
The falafel place I went everyday after class.
My roommate, who was so very good to me.
The blue sky.
My amazing teacher.
And all the cool places I went (namely: Petra and Wadi Rum).
Tomorrow, I’m going to the store with my mom to buy a novel. I am so excited.
Pictures to come.
