electric rainbow lights flashing across the dark, stuffy room. i awake at 4 am from a day of travel. stayed awake the whole night before, 7 am 5 hr plane ride to phoenix which i slept the whole way on, lay over of 15 minutes in which i shoved a cheese-less mini ($10!!) pizza into my mouth and jumped on board the 6 hr flight to Kona which I slept most of the way and snuck in some of the showed movie "Bride Wars" as well.

Dehydrated, starving, tired, and restless, I walked shakily to the airport driveway. Aki picks me up right on time, with a smile. I am too out of it for jokes and beg for him to stop at the Natural Foods Store. Grab a tempeh burger, nutty monkey shake, and a salad. I can barely eat anything though I feel extremely hungry.

Get back to the hostel. Get very sad. Leaving this time was the hardest yet. I didn't want to go. I still don't, a day later. And I made a promise to myself that next time I go home, it's for good. Not for a month. I am tired of back and forth, planning lives and then leaving them behind. Tired of having half of it all, everywhere I go. Because no matter what amazing place I find in the world with amazing lifestyles and natural environments, it will never be complete because my family isn't there. And no matter how much I love being around them, I will always hate living in the suburbs. So here I stand at the crossroads of a location decision.

But for now, I am on the road again. Going west. And really, it's not so bad. Really, it is amazing, quirky, wonderful, difficult and real. I am the first of my family to ever go to Asia. (Three weeks and counting..)

I am starving.. Eyeing up that salad for breakfast. Then a quick run in the rain (rain in Kona?!?) to the bus to take me to my homeside of the island. I need silence and solace. I need my cabin.

Late night infomercials are sucking me in. I want a bendy vacuum and six pack abs.
