Yup, I’m thirteen and I still have them. It happened in Paraguay when I was watching Arthur. DW has an imaginary friend named Nadine and at this time, I thought all kids had imaginary friends. I panicked, WAS I NOT NORMAL? I NEED THEM NOW. At this time, I had already been making stories in…

Hello, friends.

Somehow you found me. Since this is posted early in the blog it means you’re a friend or family member so let me explain some stuff. At first I didn’t want anyone to know anything about me. I know I will never see half the people who read these blogs again so what’s the point…

Same food, different flavours

Being a Parent and a Global Nomad

I was watching a movie the other day. I don’t watch movies often, but sometimes people con me into holding still for two entire hours of my life (which is why I avoid Bollywood as most Indian films last longer). And in this film there was a family picnic. You know, a weekend picnic with…

Having friends everywhere

I really enjoy this part of being a TCK but I also hate it. I have friends for all sorts of things! My fellow fangirls and boys, the ones I can talk to when I’m feeling down, people I can talk to about the deeper things, the kids when I talk about about boys and…

Transitioning from one culture to another

So this is obviously from a teen’s POV so if you’re a teen: HIIIIIII! If you’re a parent: take notes (but know not every child is the same). Paraguay and the States may be different but not too different. The States and South Korea are VERY different. At first when I heard I’d be moving…
