Time to Fly / Time Flies

Wow, I cant believe it.

In less then 24 hours I’ll be on my way to Hong Kong. This is the first time I’ve been east of Israel, or west of California (depending on which way you look at it. Its probably also my last family trip. My parents are taking me with them to visit my younger bro, Dov, who’s spending a semester abroad in the SAR. My brother seems to be having a great time, an I really cant wait to join him.

Besides the obvious fun factor, this is going to be a big challenge for me for a number of reasons.

  1. I’m in startup mode and I’m used to working 10 – 18 hours a day. Seriously. Its going to be great to get a way and refresh my energy – but I have a feeling the urge and push to work will overtake me on a daily basis.
  2. Its going to be really hard to spend that much time with my family. I love my mother, father, and brother very much but I’m very much an adult now. We get along great – for an amount of time. The biggest problem is that all the men are too similar. We’re all stubborn and all get cranky when we’re hungry/tired. This is going to be interesting.
  3. I’m very much accustomed to living and doing everything with Kat. As tough as it might be to be away from her for a weekend – I don’t even want to think about almost two weeks.

As I was typing this I noticed (in a quick self-refelctive way) that all of these issues stem from me being really comfortable in my life right now – or at least really used to the freedoms and habits that I’ve become accustomed.

So maybe this becomes a mission – to try to spend my time in Hong Kong and explore beyond the boundaries of my personal norms. That sounds kind of like the motivational tapes my mom listens to. It also sounds a tad bit cheesy but I think that’s OK.

Anyway, the real reason I wanted to write this was to let my (5) readers know that this blog is bound to only get more interesting over the 12 days. I’ll actually have something interesting to write about!
