Well people…vacation is so, so, over. I’m thinking that it would be impossible to go through life and not spend a few months living abroad again. If you’re thinking of a vacation, try going to a language school like I did – spend an extra few hundred dollars, go with a friend or by yourself, and meet tons of great people and get more out of your experience.
For all you Americans out there that are afraid to travel- there’s a whole other world that exists beyond our borders. I know it seems crazy, but it’s true. And people out there are not mean, and they like us…in fact, they’re obsessed. So go out there, and make some new friends.
I’m back in New York and I’ve found myself a job. Yes, even in the economy, people are still partying and drinking, new restaurants are opening every day, and there is still work out there for people who are not picky.
But I, dear friends, will no longer be blogging. I don’t want to blog about my life…I just want to live it. And I’m ready now, more than ever.
It was fun blogging about my experience abroad and I thank you so much for sharing it with me. I wish I could have shared a lot more, but right now…do a little digging and you will find a wealth of other blogs out there. Try www.wordpress.com or www.technorati.com – Look into the “tags” section and you will find blogs about anything and everything, and if I find some good ones, I will occasionally link to them here.
For now – try reading www.stillgoodnews.com – This is a site I have with a couple of friends where we find all the quirky, positive and hopeful news out there (Yes, there is still some good news out there!). It’s everything from – ‘re-using old subway cars as coral reefs’, to ‘why watching David Caruso on Law & Order makes you hungry.”
If anyone would like to take over this site and write about your own adventure- please contact me at channon(‘AT’ symbol)fromrighthere.com!
Thank you for reading!
