There are times when I post to this blog and I wonder if I am essentially doing the equivalent of going outside, finding a nice tree and talking to it for a half an hour or so. Talking to a tree is a relatively easy thing to do; perhaps a bit odd but it is a great way to exchange carbon dioxide for some fresh oxygen and get some things off your mind. Is writing on this blog my own tree talk? Am I just putting my own intellectual carbon dioxide out into the cyber universe and receive some release from the daily culture shock experiences? I really don't know. But I do know the reason why I started blogging: I wanted to try something new. Four years later, I am still at it and I really do enjoy it, even if I am just exchanging gases. Trying something new is a great way to learn about yourself and, as Matt Cutts points out in this TED Talks video, a great way to boost your self confidence. I've decided to try the 30 day challenge and I will be writing 1,667 words a day. I'll post again in a month and hopefully, I will have results that I am proud of!

Trying Something New

Third culture kid born and raised in New York. Adventure bound and living in Mexico for ten years and counting. In love with learning and asking questions. My thoughts on being an expat? It's all about attitude: You can take the kid out of NY but never try to take NY out of the kid.
