Eid & Something New

Happy Eid to fellow Muslims, and all blog readers alike. I kept trying to write a post about the difference between Eid celebrations in Riyadh, versus back home in the States with my family, but I was too home sick/nostalgic/emotional--whatever you want to call it--to make it past a single paragraph without exiting the screen, lingering hesitantly over the little box that would pop up each time asking me, "Are you sure you want to leave this page?" I think before I came here I was never really sure that I was ready to leave a familiar place and live in such a drastically different environment. I don't think that anyone can ever truly be sure of what lies ahead, but today I was thinking about how happy I am that I made the leap of faith and tried something new.

The holiday break is officially over and like everyone says, life here will get back to normal. I'm still trying to figure out what "normal" is, so stay tuned!
