I went back home to Vegas for the first time in 16 months. After 10 months away, I could feel myself dying inside. There is so, so, so much I miss about home. (America in general) It felt so good to unleash and just be myself in my natural surroundings. I wasn't as socially awkward. I think my people skills are the worst in the work place. Perma-culture shock. Would you believe that I've lived in New Zealand now for 2 years! EEEPS.
I was home for only about 6 days total! It was completely worth it. I hardly slept, tried to catch up with all of the amazing friends~! Jermee came in from LA, Kay & her bf Rich from Philly, LSL from Seattle, Lady C from Sacramento, etc. etc. Spent as much time with my family as I could, had a big catch up with my brother M. And last, sorting out my tedious immigration crap. HAH! I saw the amazing Miami Horror band from Melbourne Australia. We shopped for about 3 hours inside the mega-Forever 21. In N' Out w/ Lady C, I watched Jersey Shore with Dre & Belinda. Talked to my brother until like 3 in the morning in an empty parking lot while eating Del Taco, had drinks at the Crown N' Anchor & played Stone Roses on the jukebox in memory of my good times with A2, caught up w/ some Channel 13ers, had dinner at the Firefly w/ the girls & Chcuck! and did a little bit of lady shopping with Ash =)
I'll of course post all of my pictures, but here are some of my favourites from the first night:
This is happiness
I stole this one from Kay =P
Well the good news is I'll hopefully be back home again in 9 months and something even better just after that! Yeah! (See, I'm not so manic when my visits are a little bit more frequent.)
