Make it Anywhere

Writing

 

Writing Prompt: “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere,” goes the famous song about New York City. Is there a place — a city, a school, a company — about which you think (or thought) the same? Tell us why, and if you ever tried to prove that claim.

No, I have never tried to prove that claim, but being a girl who’s lived in a large city I’ve always felt like it you live in one large city you’ve pretty much lived in them all. The only thing that is really different is the people and the landmarks. I will say that moving to Las Vegas was a huge challenge for me, even though both were big cities, Milwaukee is a city that  closes at night and reopens, I was always taught there is nothing good outside at 2am, where naturally Las Vegas is the opposite the city is alive 24 hours a day, and it never sleeps there are always people on the strip and something to do at all times of night…. maybe that’s why I lived far away from the strip in a neighborhood that at 10 was pretty quiet and low key.

I did  say that if I can drive in Las Vegas I can drive in any city in the world (people are nuts there… and even worst in Chicago).. but at the end of the day I think I will be able to say that after living a year in Seoul (that’s the dream) if I can live and thrive there and speak the language then I can truly say, “I can make it anywhere!”

 

Until Next Time….

Sloppy Etymology

Sometimes you wish for something so hard and then it actually comes true. Has that happened to you? Against countless odds and still, your wish actually came true. Does it count as being lucky or should you be careful about hitching your hopes up too high? I’ve been thinking these thoughts for a while now. I’ve been thinking so much about it and I’ve also been trying not to think at all.

So much has happened since the last time I was here, blogger friends. So. Much. Where do I start from and how do I explain any of this? I am not sure. But I want to take it one step at a time. Keep my emotions in check. Make sure I’m not borrowing more happiness than I deserve to have in my share.

I can’t write like I used to. I’m putting that out there so you can…
