This is Why I Blog

I know Brad Ruszala knows why I think this is funny. To the average Filipino, Rusty Lopez means a relatively fancy shoe store in a relatively fancy shopping mall. To the average American, at least to the average American that grew up the way I did, Rusty Lopez conjures up drunken joke telling during college. I'll leave it at that. I will refrain from explaining out of respect for my younger readers.

My Big Fat Filipino Adventure is coming to an end. However familiar I thought I was with Filipino culture before this trip, I still found myself taking pleasure in noticing the small everyday things that are so different from my own culture. I find myself thinking about how I would write about all these things if I were to write about them, but I'm not sure if I'll get around to doing it.

After living in Japan and then Saipan, and now back in the mainland, blogging doesn't hold the same excitement for me that it once did. Still, the beauty that is the world I live in and explaining it through my words and amateur photography are why I still blog.

Maybe 2011 will bring a resurgence to the Saipan Blog. Or maybe I'll stop blogging all together.
