That headache I mentioned in the last post dated over a month ago?

High blood pressure.

Generational high blood pressure, I should clarify. It's practically a requirement in order to have my family name.

So, coupled with some other health concerns, I ended the semester a month early and flew home two weeks ago. I moved all my stuff out of my apartment because I'm taking a year off to spend Stateside.

Right now, I'm taking a break and waiting for a lemon pound cake to reach southern perfection in the oven. My family and I are leaving tomorrow morning for Orlando, FL, for some Fourth festivities with relatives.

Not sure how much I miss China, yet. Air conditioning and customized healthcare and a Kitchen Aid standing mixer keep me well distracted, so far.
