I NEVER thought I’d say this but, I miss Michigan.

I probably should explain myself.  I don’t miss Michigan the state, but I am missing certain things/people from MI.  When I first moved there, I will admitt that I HATED it and all I really thought about was OH.  Now that I am back in OH, all I can think about is MI. Hah, funny how that works.

I miss some of the people. The past 5-6 months of living there were great, we had an awesome group of friends established that we hung out with regularly and loved.  Although I know a few people in OH, many of them are a) out of the country, b) live too far to see regularly, c) are just not as as cool. We got so used to having people over like 3-4 times a week and going out for drinks, food, etc.  Now we kind of just sit around. Where do normal people meet other people when they move?  I guess a better question would be where do young married couples meet other young married couples with similar interests?  Church isn’t really an option.  Any Egyptian from Columbus knows that there are like 2.5 youth members here and they are all straight from the motherland, so no thank you.  Not that I have a problem with you if you are straight from the motherland, it’s just that….well, we have different interests.  Okay, but thats a different story.

We are also missing the Troy area.  We had EVERYTHING you could ever imagine within 10 minutes of us.  It’s not like we are living in the middle of bufu out here, but things are just not as close.  We were definetly spoiled back in MI.  I mean Wendy’s is like a 7 minute drive from us! If we were in Troy we would have passed 3 different Wendy’s in those 7 minutes of driving!! Not only did troy spoil us, but it also made us lazy. No shame in admitting that.

Finally, I am missing the church there.  I was not a big fan of it when I first got there, but I got used to it.  I loved the constant activities.  I loved teaching my little first graders religion.  I loved having the option of going and blending in with the 500 other familieis if I wanted to.  The church here is okay, I guess.  Better than not having a church at all, right?  But like I said before, majority of church members are straight from the motherland and I don’t really need to get started on the topic again.

Whatever though, I am sure I (and Mina too)  will adjust to Columbus soon enough.  Besides, it’s not like I hate living here, it’s just a matter of adjusting and getting used to everything again, too bad I HATE change.

Green Beer Virgin

So, yesterday I had my first green beer! Very exciting, yes.  Although I must say, it surprisingly tasted like regular beer.  Haha I don’t really know what I expected it to taste like…but I thought that maybe it would taste a little bit difference.  Nonetheless, I am no longer a green beer virgin. Yay!

Happy belated St. Patrick’s Day!
