The Return

Well, it has currently been about 1 month since I have returned back from Brazil, and I gotta say that reverse culture-shock is some nasty business. I don’t know why, but adjusting back to my life in the States has been a lot harder than it was adjusting to life in Brazil. I think it’s because my year abroad in Brazil was my gateway to experiencing my greatest and wildest fantasies in life, so it definitely was not a burden duh, which in turn definitely was not an equivalent to my rational and everyday life in the States. For example, I was mysteriously granted the guts to do absolutely crazy things in Brazil that led me to intense happiness, which were things that I would have never had the will-power to do in the States. Not quite sure how to explain what I’m trying to explain, so I’ll just hope that jafeel.

So I’m an Adult. Ew.

Another part that made returning back to my hometown a bit harder was that I legally have the need to be an “adult” now. Not really liking having to deal with all this insurance, payment, and doing things alone business. Luckily I’ve never really been that dependent on my parents, so it wasn’t that hard to adjust to this lonely business. So yah, just tryin’ not to get consumed by work and boring everyday business so I make it a point to spend good time with friends and family, and also started a free zumba class! If you’re ever in the greater-Seattle area hit me up if you want to come to a free zumba sesh! Also I gotta wash all my laundry at Laundromats because, pff, like I got moola for domestic laundry devices!

Next post will be on my plans for the fall, those of which initially almost gave my poor mother a myocardial infarction!

  1. I’ve always wanted to move to a different country and learn its language. Brazil sounds crazy fun, based on your stories.
