I've got my eye on you America

Today is December 1st, throwing my days at school into a whirlwind of Christmas carols, crafts, and craziness. As I sing ¨Jingle Bells¨for the upteenth time to 3 year olds in hopes that they will be able to sing it to their parents, I am counting down the days to go back home. It has been almost a year since I set foot in mi tierra and I am really excited. What am I looking forward to? Its probably obvious but I'm going to write about it anyway. 

1. My family: To tell the truth, I think one of the things I'm looking forward to is getting the welcome back hug from my mom and dad at the airport. I haven't seen my brothers in 6 months and I can't wait to hang out with them. Thanksgiving is a holiday that I have learned to celebrate abroad but Christmas I have a hard time imagining outside of the US.

2. Food: Mexican, Sushi, decent Chinese, mom's cooking, Vietnamese, pancake breakfasts, BAGELS. The list goes on and on... I'm expecting to put on some kilos this Christmas. 
Mmmmmmmmmmm, drooling right now

3. North Cackalacky: It's my home state and I miss it like crazy. One of the PE teachers at school wore his Michael Jordan UNC jersey and it almost brought tears to my eyes. The leaves changing in the fall, the mountains and the beach, the Tarheels! It will be great to be back in my hometown. 

Coming up... a Spanish Christmas. Lottery, bad pastries, and jamon oh my!
