Across a Sea

I've been thinking for days what would seem an appropriate topic to start my weblog with, after awhile it came to me. Rather than just starting by writing randomly about a subject, I should really begin this by talking about myself.

Ok, here it goes...


Coming here from the island was like arriving to a different world, it was exiting, terryfying and new, I felt and still feel like I'm lost in this unique and complex world that knows no boundaries and holds inmense possibility. I'm still trying to get to use to the enviroment here (the crazy weather) and the culture that surrounds me.

But all in all, i must also say, that whenever i feel intimidated, confused, alone or homesick, i beging to think about that moment in the airplane, (when i dared to look through the window) and watch silently the inmense sea that stood in between both worlds. I realized then and now as I stand here, that the biggest obstacle to face has already been crossed, and it wasn't even difficult so much as challenging, the rest is up to me, what comes next must be frightening and challenging....

-But i'm glad to be here

I'm from Puerto Rico, this is my first time away from the island in years, i'm so sorry i didn't specify that in my entry, i thought everybody knew.

That's wild! &, nope, I didn't know that. How are you adapting? Is this your first semester at SHU? It's my first semester here... I just transferred in.

How did you end up in Greensburg, anyway?

(geez, look at me, I'm just full of questions! :c)

I'm from an "island" myself, ya know... I was born in England. I've lived here since I was 5 though, so I don't have the cool accent.

England, really...how intresting.

Don't worry about the accent though, i don't have a one either, LOL.

But yeah, this is my first semester here...i'm adapting ok, its dificult somestimes though, but i just try to remind myself that, you know, its a different culture and that it will be difficult for awhile.

The truth of it is that I don't even remember how i ended up comming here, i mean i really can't recall what made me want to make up my mind, just that i had to put up a fight to come

why don't you have an accent? (just curious)

i'd be interested to read a kind of comparison between the two cultures.. maybe you could blog about it?

well hey! if it was worth fighting for, it must be worth being here. :c) awesome. good luck!

To be honest i don't know why i don't have an accent, i know everyone always mentioned how good my english is, but the truth is...i'm still learning how to say a few words and there are others that i still haven't quite figured out the meaning.

Like for example, last year i finally discovered what the word "sibling" meant...yeah i know is funny, but i really didn't know what they were asking me until somebody pointed it out...it was very funny, i thought it meant "similar or friends"

I liked your sugestion about bloging the differences between both cultures, i'll get on it right away.
