I haven’t updated this site in a while. Life’s been busy. Found a new job. Going on 4 weeks now that I’ve been working there. Kids are back to school. Time goes by quickly when you’re busy so it’s been hard to get to the blog. Anyway I wanted to take a quick minute to […]
I came across this article on my Facebook newsfeed: I normally try to steer clear of opinion pieces of Americans because I don’t want to be exposed to more negativity. But I clicked on this one. I’m thankful that I did. While it saddens me that it happens at all, I’m also happy to know that I’m […]
So today is the 4th of July in Australia which means nothing to Australians. Tomorrow when it’s the 4th of July in America, everyone will be celebrating America’s Independence and I really hope they know what they’re celebrating and that the people in this video were just the minority.

I saw this article posted on Facebook and found it accurate and funny, except for the politics and guns. Never in all my years there did I hear someone bring up politics with a total stranger or in random conversation. I’ve encountered more people talking politics here than I ever had while living in the […]
My grandparents were born and raised in Puerto-Rico, then, as adults, they moved to NY where my mother was born and raised. When you first look at me, especially in Australia, you know I’m not quite Caucasian, there’s something else. Tanned olive skin, dark hair, dark eyes, and a slight accent more than just American. […]
A few months ago I had discovered that I had been non-compliant with my American taxes while living in Australia. Yes, even though I do not live nor work in America nor do I get any revenue from America, I still have to do my American taxes. EVERY. YEAR. I was behind on my taxes […]
