Sweet Home . . . Singapore?

June 19, 2014

2014 has been a crazy year thus far.

I turned 27!

I published a book!

I’ve gone skiing in Vermont and went muggleing about at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I saw The Avett Brothers and Old Crow Medicine Show in concert. I toured vineyards on Long Island’s North Fork and have generally followed the sage advice of Tom and Donna, and treated myself. Well.

And things just keep on coming.

Because in addition to traveling and turning the age that a lot of famous people have died and publishing a book, I will also be moving to Singapore.

Marina Bay Sands/”downtown” (??) business district area.



This is where Singapore is located/what it looks like. It’s okay that you didn’t know before right now. I basically didn’t either.

Yes, I’m excited.

Yes, I’m absolutely terrified.

No, I don’t know what I’ll be doing for work.

No, I will not be flying Malaysia Airlines.

Why, yes, I would like for you to send my resume (C.V., whatever.) to your family friend/cousin/college roommate’s boyfriend who now lives there. So nice of you to offer.

But in all seriousness, this is crazy-pants. I’ve barely been abroad (a month traveling around Greece in 2006 and a trip to Thailand/Singapore in 2013), let alone lived in another country. But, when the opportunity* arises to live abroad, you have to say yes. So I did.

I’ll be leaving NYC July 12th, which is so, so weird. I’ve lived here for four years and it’s been a wonderful, though at times very lonely and uncertain, ride. But all in all, I’ve loved (nearly) every second of living in New York and the idea of leaving hasn’t quite settled fully on me yet.

But after driving away, I’ll be road tripping my way to Arkansas, where I’ll hang out for a solid six weeks and pretend like I’m a college kid and have summers off**, which will include drinking all the cheap booze and eating foods that are not Asian and going to Crystal Bridges a lot and hanging out at the farmer’s market on the weekends and around the U of A campus like a creeper and writing at coffee shops and probably doing a shit ton of yoga.  And then I’ll fly away to another hemisphere (!!) in September.

It’s going to be a crazy adventure.

I’m (mostly) psyched.


*Opportunity = The Boyfriend got his dream job there and asked me to move with him.

**Unless I get a job in Singapore and need to be there earlier
