Expat Update: March 2017

I can’t believe it’s the end of March already!  There’s only 3 more months left of school (work) and then I have 3 months off!  Here I’ll be looking back on what I’ve been up to this month, the places I’ve been, the highs and lows, life as a Brit in the States and other random things I’m finding interesting this month!

Review: The Happiness Advantage. Are You An Orange Frog?

Recently for my job, I was sent on a course about how to have a happy, positive way of thinking in life.  No, it wasn’t an anger management course and no I was not sent on it because I’m a grump bag!  It started by reading a parable called The Orange Frog.  All the frogs in the pond were green, when one of them started to think positive, he became more orange.  At first, the other frogs thought being orange and different was a bad thing.  But the positivity started to rub off on all the frogs around him and soon they all became orange.  They realised that although bad things may happen in their life, their outlook could change the way they were affected by it.

The Expat Tag

Now I’m living in America, I read a lot of expat blogs!  I find it really interesting reading other people’s experiences and it’s great connecting with other people that are going through a similar thing to what I am (it really is a very weird feeling being an expat!).  I was recently tagged in a post by Sandra at Going American, a fellow European now living in Boston, USA and thought it’d be fun to answer her questions about my expat life experience!

Expat Life: USA Cell Phone Plans Are SO Expensive!

In the UK I had been with the same phone company ever since I was 11 years old…roughly 15 years!  It may have changed hands several times (One-to-One, T-Mobile, EE) but I was always happy with the service I received.  I’ve been in America for 5 months and I’m already onto my 2nd phone company.  Before I emigrated, I had bought an iPhone, just thinking that it’d be simple, I’d get to America and just put in an American Sim Card and away I go!  If only it was that simple!

The Reality of Visiting Home For The First Time

What’s it like to visit home for the first time after you’ve emigrated? The key word is VISIT. There are so many posts about what is it like when you return from travelling but what is it like when you know you are only stopping by for a visit rather than just returning to normal life? I’ll tell you.
