Back in Town

While Mario’s back in Spain, I’ve made a move myself—to Bloomington!


Bloomington, as described by Business Week, is the “quintessential college town.” It’s a small town, main up of mainly undergraduates and grad students. Home to IU basketball, a Tibetan cultural center and dozens of ethnic restaurants, it’s a great place to be if you’re in Indiana.

It’s also where I went to college. I even got a degree!

I love it. I’m all moved in and ready to start a new job on Monday as an editor. You know, what I do for fun. It should be a pretty good job. Not to mention, one of my favorite people works there!

Hilary! (Or as my dad likes to call her, “Hills”!) We were roommates in college and, although a few inches shorter and way more outgoing, we’re similar – like good food, dancing, chatting, and both our significant others are foreign (hahaha)! Two peas in a pod, I tell ya.

The nice new apartment and being closer to Hilary all make the sting of Mario leaving a bit less painful. Not much, but still.

Any little bit helps.

Hey, when are you coming back? Any time now, any time now.

  1. Felicidades on moving to a new place and your new job! I’m impressed with your long distance relationship as I know it’s not easy. I set off to Spain with a long distance relationship and 5 weeks in my now ex decided he didn’t want to be in a long relationship. Came as a surprise to me bc 9 months is long but NOT that long.

    It really takes 2 to be willing to go the distance (pun intended) to make it work. Congrats to both of you for making it work!
