  • 10 Hours in NYC 2 days ago I shook the Russky awake and dragged him into the car. We started driving. It was 3:30 AM and he had no idea where we were going. I promise this won’t end up being a story of an international kidnapping and extortion incident. When I planned a weekend adventure about a month ago, he defiantly...
  • Drinks With a View in the Blue Ridge Mountains 5 days ago Sipping from a thin-stemmed glass will probably never lose its ultra-classy charm for me. Let’s be honest: I’m much more of the thrower-back (throw-backer?) of vodka shots in dirty Soviet apartments and sweaty long drinks in dark bars.

  • Tough Love: 5 Tips to Enjoy Expat Life After the Honeymoon Period Expat Culture Shock Every great adventure starts with the giddy honeymoon period. You know, that magical time when everything you say is punctuated by exclamation marks: oh my god! This is so exciting! It's all so new! I'm having the best time ever! How long this phase...
  • Future ESL Teachers Beware! (or, The Worst Teaching Day Ever) Education and International Schools I watch wearily as one of the many Svetlanas reaches into her Chanel purse, touches up her MAC lipstick (Russian Red, obviously), all while typing apathetically on her iPhone. It's 8:30 AM and I'm already questioning my sanity. I've been teaching...
