Recently spending time alone enough to reflect on my life...I see how isolated I have really always kept myself. No one...or at least only a select few...have really known what I was thinking on a regular basis.

My week normally includes people from all economic classes in life...from the Uber-educated and maybe even foreign born to the uneducated and maybe even ignorant to how much the world has changed & progressed technically.

Those of you who do not know my "story," I invite you to read my story here to save me from having to repeat it, allowing me to pick up where I am now. And I don't mean to be rude about it, but it has gotten super tiresome for me to keep explaining my... Continue Reading →
Here I am living in a new world...and well, it's not too new to me...I've been here for 7 years but it's very different from where I'm from. Though I do have a habit of making myself at home any place I choose, those who observe me from the outside, can see that I am... Continue Reading →
