Well Folks, I’m Home for Now.

Last week I arrived back to the U.S.A., and it took me over a week to get back to this blog because I was basically hibernating. So far I have been enjoying small but marvelous moments with my siblings, their new dog, and my parents.

However, I’ve gotta admit, there have been lots of mixed emotions. I realised (realized… should I be using UK or USA spelling now?!?!) the week before I left that I was leaving my family to go see my family. No matter where I wander, be it in Europe or in the USA, I’ll be missing a home on the other side of the ocean. And while that’s a lil rough, it is also exciting! It means that I’ve got a home on both sides of the Atlantic ocean. It means I’ve had the opportunity to spend more time with more wonderful and precious people.

Since arriving home some highlights have been:

Meeting my nephew for the first time:


Chilling with my family’s new dog:



Embarrassing myself  in my parent’s new apartment gym (no picture, your welcome).

Lots of chill time with my lil siblings:




Long walks and runs on the local lake:


My most important projects for this summer are building up this blog again and finishing the historical fiction novel I’ve been working on since high school. I seriously forgot how much I love writing. It is weird how immersing myself in a fictional universe makes me feel so alive! So I’m gonna try to make that a priority this summer (amidst summer camps, visiting friends, chilling with my siblings, and working for my dad’s iPhone App Design company).

Let’s get this party started! How is your summer going?

Unfortunately, I was born a couple centuries late, so I've decided to read, cook, run, and travel the world until my time machine is finished. You'll mostly likely find me getting into trouble and/or eating licorice. I am currently blogging the misadventures of a middle-school teacher in training. Come join me on my quest to become the next Ms. Frizzle!

  1. What a cute cousin you have!! And a nice-looking dog… was it weird to come home and find a new pet?? I would find that so hard to get used to! This summer I’m going to be working a lot, but I love both of my jobs so I’m excited to get started! I’m also looking forward to your guest post on my blog! Eep!

    1. It took a bit of getting used to. My family actually moved to another house while I was away, plus my older sister moved across the country to attend a bible school, plus my lil sister started college, plus my older brother had another baby. There were SO MANY changes that the new dog was more of a comfort than something to get used to, and he is a great dog so I can’t really complain.


  2. Aww! This sounds like a wonderful summer! Your nephew is such a CUTIE!!! Good luck with your novel; isn’t creating a story the greatest feeling!? I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo and I’m spending several weeks in Oregon with my Grandmother, so that’s what’s happening here… Can’t wait to hear more about your summer.

  3. Travelling seems fun. However I don’t wanna travel a lot-a lot because I just want to find a home. I might travel a lot more in the future. Yeah.

    1. Yeah, it is hard. Now I feel like I have two homes, one in America and one in the UK. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to settle anywhere cause I will always be missing somewhere else.
