I've Had Too Much To Think!

After lunch and a tear jerker of a goodbye with one of my favorite humans, I boarded the Amtrak empire builder and rolled out of town. Things I learned: train bathrooms are about as fun as airplane bathrooms, my Netflix app won't let me access the shitload of offline shows I downloaded for some reason, I'm glad I have three books on my reading device, and it's hard to sleep on the train. For some reason, there are a couple of folks from rails to trails on board who are giving historical annecdotes about the route and some of the beautiful sites I am watching roll by. I'll put some photos up when I get some WiFi access. Good first day.

Work is work, just a way to pay the bills while i figure out what i want to do when i grow up. Speaking of which, i have signed on to Ambassador of Beer, where some friends and i will be babbling about, well, beer. So, if you like beer, give it a look see. A monthly beer club is in the works.
In other news, i am posting the last installment of photos from my trip. Kind of lost internet access for a bit there in Thailand, or at least the free kind where time means nothing and you can upload to your heart's content.
Overall, it's good to be home. I feel rejuvenated. My soul feels cleaner. The things that were bothering me before i left just don't seem to matter as much.
And i am feeling motivated to learn new things, to grow and change and not sink back into the rut i climbed out of when i left to wander strange lands and clear my head. Thanks to everyone who followed along, i hope you enjoyed the ride.

Was going to leave on a bus for Bangkok today. Decided to stay one more night and fly from Krabi instead. Just don't have it in me to waste an entire day sitting on a bus when i can sit in a hammock instead. It cost me about twice as much, but the peace of mind is worth it.
So, off to Bangkok tomorrow for about a day of trinket shopping, and hopefully a reunion with my friend Dang. Hopefully the curfew is lifted by the time i arrive.
