I can’t believe I’ve been home for 6 months! I’ve done so much and spent time with so many great people!
When I got home from China my parents’ garage was full of all my belongings that had been sitting in storage in LA. So we had a garage sale! It was such a freeing experience. I recommend it!
Thanksgiving was soooo delicious.
My sister Julie got engaged while I was gone! She married Josh in a cute little chapel on 12/12/12. It was really fun to meet Josh’s family and see some of my relatives.
One of my saddest days in China was Christmas the previous year so having Christmas at home with my family was truly a special day this year.
After 3.5 months I was still hanging out at home so I did something no Fischer has ever done before. I went on tour with my dad and his Wind Symphony. We traveled on a bus to Indiana, Alabama, Ohio, and North Carolina for 10 days. It was nice to spend time with my dad and so awesome to see him at work.
After 4 months of not doing much (not complaining!) I started working again. I spent a couple weeks in Los Angeles and then 6 weeks in Charlotte, NC. I worked on a reality show for WEtv. It was good being back in production, seeing people I hadn’t seen for years, and making some new friends. A high point of the job was hiding from the cameras in a bathroom at a club.
On my way back to Chicago I stopped in Boston to visit my high school friend Sara. Yoga, sushi, mani / pedi’s, sleeping in, and catching up was all we did for 2 days and it was perfect.
I should write a whole blog post about my high school friend Eleanor. Living only miles away from her was so comforting and special. She also has the most beautiful inspiring family!
My friend of 25 years – Alison -and her husband Steve had their 3rd child- Maddock -while I was home. I was honored to become his godmother! Another beautiful family!
One of the best parts of the past 6 monts was living at home a majority of the time. My parents spoiled me and never seemed to mind having me around (all the time) and driving their cars. Thanks mom and dad!
On May 20th I leave for China with my parents. My dad’s Wind Symphony will be playing concerts and touring for 10 days. My parents have been to China before and of course I have been there but we’ve never been there together. After the first 10 days I’ll make my way back to Xi’an and then to a town a few hours north. I’ll be spending the summer there promoting a new school for Aston English Schools. It’s a small city and will be a completely different experience. The good news is if it’s really difficult and lonely it’s only for 3 months and not far from Xi’an.
