Blog Resuscitation

I realized that the last time I posted anything on my blog was seven months ago. It’s a very long time and so much has happened in that period. First of all, I would like to announce that I am now living in the US, in Las Vegas to be specific. I moved here a few months ago and I am loving it! It was a big step for me and took me a lot of courage and determination to pack a suitcase, grab my meager savings and get on that plane. But here I am! Did I mention that I just packed one suitcase? Yes, one. Well, unless you count the other suitcase. But they’re small suitcases so I consider them both as one.

IMG_4408The move wasn’t simple. It took me forty hours to get here by plane– counting the layovers and the excruciatingly long hours I spent at airport cafés. I was carrying a forty-pound handbag which had my laptop, notebooks, and other electronics. It took the tendons in my arms two months to recover from dragging that bag around.IMG_5299The obstacles didn’t stop once I got here. I was staying in a bad side of town at first and had a very tight and uncomfortable living situation. But that’s all behind me now and I had a fresh start to my fresh start. And as challenging as it was, I did manage to write a novel while there, and that’s always a good thing. I learned invaluable lessons from writing outside my physical comfort zone which I am eager to share with you soon.IMG_5373

I hope you like the photos I added. I will try to post as much as I can and keep you updated as often as my schedule permits. I realize that at this point, my blog needs resuscitation, but I’m counting on my loyal followers to help me make my come back an easier one.

What have you guys been up to? How is your summer so far?

  1. A move is not always easy. I’ve done it twice, cross continent, but never to another country. I’m glad you made it safe, sound, & seem to be looking at the bright side of things. I’m sad about the rough start and travel for you. I’m curious if the U.S. matching what you imagined it to be before moving here.

    As for me, keeping my head above water…figuratively trying to buy a ship before I drown. May just have to build one. Take care.

    1. Sorry, I didn’t finish (I was distracted by my mother’s techno issues),,,,,,we all need one occasion where we do something incredibly brave, and adventurous 😀

  2. Congratulations on the move. I love Vegas and visit at least once a year for the lights and the adventure…oh and the hot chocolate at Ethel m’s chocolate factory. Best hot chocolate ever! Glad to see a new post!

  3. i understand the lure of lights and excitement. i work at the Lego Land Resort in Florida and when people enter the glitz they smile and are overwhelmed. Just watch your gambling and enjoy.

  4. Congratulations on your move! Always a big step and change when you pack in what you know and head somewhere else. And welcome back to the blogosphere too.

  5. Welcome and good to have you back. Nice to know you have settled in nicely, after the false start. The year is running so fast, and I’ve been chasing my dreams. Best wishes!

  6. I am so happy you wrote all this! For a couple of months now I have been contimplating whether I should pack a bag and move to the US or just stay put. I lived in Texas for my senior year, and still go back often.

    Do you mind if I ask you a few questions about your big move? Would love to know more!

    Warm Regards,
