And So We Meet Again

It's been over a year since I've posted anything here, yet it still surprises me that the page gets traffic. It kind of surprised me it ever got traffic at all.

The past year has been an interesting one to say the least. My husband was approved for his green card, we moved to the US, he couldn't find a job so he moved back to India for work while I stayed in the US, he visited in Feb, and now he's planning to return for good in 2 weeks, although still with no job.

I'm happy to be back in the US, the land of clean running water, consistent electrical current, decent roads, infrastructure, you name it. Life is good. It will be better when my husband is back, and it will be even better once he gets settled in with a job.

One glaring difference between the US and India. In the US, it's sink or swim. In India, we always had family to fall back on and friends to help us out if we needed it. I never worried about where my next meal would come from, or expenses in general. I can't say the same in the US. Especially being a single income household. It's a rat race. It's a bit stressful, but you just have to take it a day at a time and hope for the best.

I'm not sure how much longer I'll keep the blog open, but I wish you all well and hope you're doing fine.

  1. Hi! I am Nerissa, a Filipino living in Italy.
    We just started a website dedicated to the lives of all those living in a country other than the one where they were born. Thru we intend to increase connections, awareness, and understanding among people.
    We would like to ask you to contribute as an author to the website by writing even one single post with photos and/or videos about the region of the world you live in. Your post can be externally linked to your personal websites, blogs, Facebook pages, Twitter account, and/or anything else you like, in order to promote your own activity.
    If possible, we would also like you to write your story (bio - where you live and how you decided to live your life abroad) – example:
    To become an author, it is not necessary to live in a different country from where you were born, but simply to know a bit of the world by having lived, studied, or traveled abroad.
    Please, sign up to our website at and send all your files with things you would like to share (your story or your posts) by email to people(at)peopleabroad(dot)org. In case of big files, send them by WETRANSFER.
    Since this website is still under construction, we do not have yet made it available to search engines for indexation. So, to access it, just type
    We are just starting and that is why your help is essential. We would love to see you onboard!
    All the best,
