Hello, dear readers —
So, in my last post I was pretty excited about reading my next book about immigration. It was February. I had just learned all about Slovakia. I had three whole months to finish the rest of my reading list.
Then… life happened.
I don’t want to go into all the hairy details now (maybe another time), but suffice it to say that the last few months have felt like an object lesson in the phrase “When it rains, it pours.” It’s been a bit rough.
So, here are a couple updates:
1) I haven’t read the immigration book yet. But…
2) It’s trip time! I leave for Germany soon — and though I’m bummed I didn’t finish my whole reading list, I’m glad I at least got through the Europe parts!
3) I’m still hoping to read the “immigration to America” part of my reading list after I get back. (In some ways, I think it’ll actually be cool to leave Europe and then read books about my ancestors leaving Europe!)
I’m thankful for the opportunity I’ve had to learn and prepare for this trip, and I’m thankful that I am also learning to cut myself some slack and take a break when it all gets to be too much.
Can’t wait to share some thoughts on my trip when I return, and thank you for reading along with me on this journey.
