Hitting Too Close to Home

Day 26:  Recognize someone who has made your expat experience better

We are getting close to the end of the blogger's challenge.  All of us prolific writers are going to be continuing the challenge on a much smaller scale, like once a month.  Hopefully this will start making it easier to blog on a more regular basis.

Okay, I just deleted everything I wrote about today's topic.  I can't write on this subject tonight.  It's just too private and I don't usually say that.  I'm an open book.  I don't have a problem sharing my feelings.

I'm really sorry, but I have to use the "get out of jail free" card.  I don't know what else to write about.  It's funny how life can throw you curveballs.  Some days I'm dying to go back to the states.  Others I'm perfectly content to stay in Sydney.

I have friends here.  But I also really treasure my alone time.  And sometimes I feel guilty about that.


  1. No need to apologize at all. We're all just doing what we can do, ya know?

  2. Guilty about alone time? No way! Alone time is important! Fair enough - somethings are too personal to us & we wouldn't want you to write it if it made you uncomfortable.

  3. Sometimes it's good to push the boundaries of our comfort zones, but sometimes, well, it's just not. Sometimes it can be dangerous. There's nothing wrong with keeping some things private and you don't have to apologize for that or for wanting time alone.
