What Next?

What should this Brit living in the USA post about next about living in the USA?

  1. Would love to hear an overview - has it all been worth it? Good points/bad points of emigrating to usa. Would you do it all again? Anything you wish you'd known before?

    1. Would I do it again? Absolutely. Without question. I wish I'd known how to deal with humidity. It has absolutely been worth it. The main thing to make it work, for me anyway, is to not refer to or think about the UK as being home. My home has been the US for the last 6 years and the UK is just where I was born. I think having that frame of mind has helped me not have such bad homesickness as others have had. I think I may write a post about that in the future.

  2. Yeah all been worth it but the summer heat is something I can't get used to let alone the humidity.

    1. Yes it has been worth it and the summer heat/humidity has been a pain in the bum, but in the grand scheme of things it is manageable. A bit of frizzy hair for a little while in exchange for living here? I'll take it.

  3. Do you get comments on your accent? Is it good or bad? Apparently the shops over there are massive, is that true?

    1. I do get comments on my accent and generally they are good and people are just interested. I very rarely have to repeat myself anymore. Some shops are huge but there are smaller ones too. How small I couldn't say because I am more used to them than British ones. :)

  5. Hello, I just came across your blog and noticed you live in my area. I live in Summerville, perhaps you've been to the Flowertown Festival in the spring? I'm not from here (originally from Rhode Island) but have lived here for the past 20 years. I have some friends from Redditch and are in the process of trying to move here, so I was looking for info on others who have gone through the process. I'll have to sit and read your blog posts. I hope you enjoy it here in SC, I love New England but after spending 6 years in south Florida I just love it here, although yes our summers are long and hot, well humid. :) I would think in one way it must be hard to get used to it being from England. I have had fun conversing with my British friends about the differences in our countries, but maybe you now understand this living here, it can be very hard to tell people how it is when every state is different, every region is different etc. Living here in SC is very different from living in Rhode Island for example and I get "homesick" for so many things and yet it's the same country. This is a very diverse country. ;) Well I've already talked so much, good luck and welcome to this country!! :) God bless! ~Meghan

Did you know that you need to get a new green card when you turn 14? Do you know the reason why? No really, I'd like to know why. ...
