So, our bags are packed, our apartment is clean, the plants have been watered, and we are ready to go! We are really excited to go back to America. We haven't been there in about a year and a half. I'm excited and nervous. I'm not the same person I was when I left. I have a much different view of the world now. I look at the world differently now. So, I don't know how I will feel when we land in California. I've kind of turned Japanese in the last year. I'm accustomed to certain Japanese ways. I'm afraid that all things American will slap me in the face and send me running back to my home in Japan. Like I said, I've changed, and I know America has changed, too. But, I'm not sure if we've both changed for the better. I'll guess I'll see in 24 hours!
