Hello? Is anyone still out there?
So it’s been a little while since I last popped in. Alright, almost two years. Oops.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog. My own little corner on the Internets. And I really miss it. I had big plans to start writing again for VeganMofo this year. Until I realized mid-September that it had already started. So Chreese on Toast was put on the back burner once again. And a few weeks went by and I got busy with other things. But I realized that I was still thinking about it at the most unexpected times. I miss sharing my thoughts and connecting with other people. So I’m here now to say that I’m back!
Seriously, what have you been doing for the last two years?
It’s funny how life just keeps going when you aren’t paying attention. I won’t go into too much detail about the last two years now, but here is what I am up to these days:
I’m currently living in China.
Most of my time is spent studying, teaching, or working on research. I’m in a classroom allll day.
When I’m not in a classroom, I like to spend as much time outdoors as possible.
I just got a rice cooker that I’m head over heels for.
There’s also this guy on the other side of the world that I miss terribly.
One of the last posts I wrote was about my resolutions for 2012. Looking back on it now, it’s certainly interesting to see what was important to me then and how my values have grown or changed. Sometimes when I think of crazy ideas, I actually go out and do them. Here are a couple goals I actually accomplished:
Complete a 50k ultra marathon – I ran TWO of them. And am currently training for my third. I don’t know what happened to that high school girl who used to walk the mile in gym class.
Improve my Spanish/ASL – I haven’t worked on this as much as I would like to. But I am currently studying Chinese and French.
Plan trip to Nepal – Earlier this year, I spent a month in Nepal. Including two weeks trekking in the Himalayas. I belong in the mountains.
You’re back! So what does this mean for Chreese on Toast?
I think part of the reason I stopped writing was that I felt like I was trying too hard to write for other people. I tried to be what people wanted to read. And I didn’t always feel like I was being me. Things have certainly changed now. I think my life is somewhat unconventional and maybe even a little bit interesting to some people. I want to share my passion for healthy living. And maybe a few stories about living in a foreign country every once in awhile. What will you find here? The answer to that question may always be changing, but you can expect a few rice cooker recipes and pictures of my adventures. I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to post, but hopefully I’ll be seeing you around much more frequently now.
Thanks for stopping by!
