I can't even begin to tell you the amount of crazy happenings that have occurred over the past few weeks. Yes, I did get married. Yes, my wife put a ring on it. And yes, I'm now a husband. But this isn't necessarily a post about how I got married and such. More like a post that talks about opportunity.

And that's just it. Since being in the Philippines and being around new and old family I've gotten a good sense of where most of my personality stems from. Of course, with most of my cousins that reside in the P.I. it's a bit frustrating when you have language barriers. I don't speak tagalog and maybe I should start now. Maybe it is time for me to finally realize how important it is to learn the native language.

I say opportunity in the fact that I want to learn new things this year. Maybe to step back and learn what I've seen in the another country. To find ways to go back and see my family. Possibly make essays about the life of the P.I. Today I will attempt to develop a couple of rolls of film that I've shot there. From there I will scan and present you guys something that I've experienced my time away. If anything though... it was indeed one of the best things that happened in my life. And I'm sure if any of you could experience what I've experienced then you would know the beauty of it all.

I'm happy to be back. But I'm sad I'm away.
