    Emigration and Loneliness

    I left Ireland almost four years ago with my husband and three kids.  It has, without a doubt, been the hardest four years of my life.  I miss the simplicity of home.  Lately, I feel completely overwhelmed with regret and longing for friends and family.  There...

    I Live In Mexico

    I am much happier here, it's the old "little fish looks for a small pond"? or the thought of living in Japan where you need to have an engineering degree to empty garbage cans seems a bit difficult for my little brain. Here if I show up for work or get there on time I am a star...

    An American In Turkey

    I'm An American Living In Reykjavik

    I have been here for 7 months and have some mixed emotions about it. I have had the best of times and the worst of times, to steal a bit of Dickens. But seriously it is amazing here although the winter may prove to be my undoing. I am not sure how it will be, but I have some...

    The Death Of My Spirit

    Well, 2 days ago I just got back to my house in Texas — the first time this 2012. I'd spent the last 2 months in Batam, Indonesia living with my 18 yo girlfriend and her family. Things were immediately odd in Indonesia: I couldn't hug her, I couldn't put my arm around her, I...
