I'm in North Dakota (And I Like it That Way)

October 16, 2013

Whitesnake sang, "I don't know where I'm going, but I sure know where I've been."

I've studied abroad in Italy, taught English in South Korea and visited Canada, Spain, France, Ireland, Sweden, Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Morocco, Japan and changed planes in Amsterdam, but I really like my latest stop, North Dakota.

Yes, I'm serious.

Bryan Adams said, "Ain't no use in complainin' when you've got a job to do," and he was right. Living here is just like living anywhere else because work is work, but I'm finally back to doing what I'm good at.
