Yet if they’re doing it, why can’t we? That’s really what got me here, to this place, writing this blog and publishing my stuff. I am inspired by people who DIY. Eventually, that inspiration morphed into envy and here I am!
It took blogging for a few months to figure out what I’m writing about. Okay, I’m still figuring it out.
But, I did realize through the process that I like to write for people who feel like maybe they’re not doing something in life right. Because we all feel that way. And while it can be painful, it can also be funny.
Like wearing your underwear to PE. Which I really did do while living in Sweden. I wanted to show off my new American Wonder Woman Underoos that I got on home leave! It made perfect sense at the time.
Did you grow up overseas? Or move a lot?
I attribute this feeling of “Am I doing this right?” to my experience as a little girl moving every two years to different countries. Anyone who is a third culture kid may understand what I mean. It stays with you, this sense of questioning.
Am I doing it right? How are they doing it? If I do it their way will life be better?
Of course, the wonderful thing about being a new girl all the time is that you realize that there is no right, just a lot of different. I like that.
Are you a third culture kid? Were you new in school like, all the time? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
