One year in America - my ass!
Wow! October 16th marks my first anniversary of moving to the United States! Time seems to fly when you're having fun I still remember the hassles at the airport when they wanted me to pay 575 Euros for my "overweight" baggage and I started to get angry. It's been a year full of fun, love, and stress ... Hurricane Sandy messed up my moving container, our beloved kitty Mr. Pickles was so sick that he died after being with us for three months, we have lived on bread and water during transition periods and managed the whole visa process ... America is a strange country to get used to when you are a German, and there is still lots of stuff I don't understand, but everything turned out ALRIGHT and I have to say Americans are a wonderful, lovable bunch of people! I would never have thought that I would ever move to another country, but I did. And for good reason. LOVE After one year, I can proudly say that I have never one single minute felt a feeling of home sickness. I blame it on my lovely husband, who is the joy and love of my life. One year ago I embarked on an adventure, and I didn't know where it would lead me, but my courage has paid off. I'm seriously having the time of my life and I never one single moment regretted my decision. I am missing my people from Germany, and I miss the food, especially the bread, but there is ways to get alright with stuff like this and I know them I am thankful for everybody who encouraged me to follow my dream and make it come true. And, as cheesy as it may sound, I also thank Pearl Jam. Without this band, I would never have even met this gorgeous man I am thankful for all my friends who supported me, I am thankful for my loving family and my new family, whom I love to pieces too. I dig you America, with all your flaws. Here's to the next couple of years, I know it's gonna be a good ride ... Love as much as you can!
Please, Pearl Jam, consider a Benaroya Hall vinyl reissue!
