Two years since I first moved abroad

May 1, 2013.

This marks two years since I first moved out of the United States.

I’m pausing. I’m pausing and reflecting.

It felt odd going back to Louisville but not as odd as I thought. It felt scary moving to Saudi Arabia but, also, not as scary as I thought. I completed my Master’s and parlayed that into my position working for McGill in the Kingdom. Getting back helped going again.

I learned a lot that first trip through Asia. I’m learning a lot on the other side as well.

It’s been two years since I first moved abroad.

I’m pausing, reflecting, and continuing forward.
