JQ here, signing back on after some time off with the family in Phoenix.  Things run a bit slower here in Sun City as you can see.    It was great to hang out and sleep in a "real" bed after being on the road, not to mention HOT showers too!

As mentioned in previous blogs, it's spring training for Baseball, and now that I'm in Phoenix, I had to go see a local game.  Phoenix has gone stadium building crazy these past years and over a dozen Major League teams now practice here.  It's practically an entire league (Cactus League) but the games are so much more enjoyable and low key.

This time off has helped me to reflect on the changes going on and what my future will hold.  I've always wanted to finish my college education, and have decided to go back to school full time.  With the proximity to family, low cost of living, and great schools, I've decided to relocate to Phoenix and get a Business degree from Arizona State.  With a Trifecta like that, I can't go wrong.    I'm really going to miss my friends and the life in the Bay area, but this is a golden opportunity that rarely comes along.  So I've enrolled in the local JC to get things rolling for the Summer session and will transfer to ASU later.

Well, my parents are probably getting tired of me hogging up the hallway bathroom, ; ) so I'm headed West to kick it on the beach in San Diego for a few days.  After that, I'll work my way up the coast and home, but not before a few more adventures.  This epic journey is coming to a close, and the future awaits.

Heading for the setting sun...
