Bounce it y’all

April 22, 2010

This is day one of trying to stay relevant while raising a toddler and moving at the whim of my husband’s career.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s an interesting life. Finland is good, really good. Switzerland was not, really not. Globetrotting just isn’t so glamorous when you’re not Paris Hilton.

No matter what 50 Cent says, bouncing from Sydney, to Eindhoven, to St-Gingolph, to Geneva, to Helsinki, etc. is tough. You have people who manifest your entire world for six months. But when you leave, your BFF becomes BFFN (Best Friend For Now.) Only now is over.  Yeah, it’s depressing like that.

The other trouble with The Bounce is it leaves a hole in your résumé like the holes in your heart. But today we’re changing that.

Blog experience? Tick.

I guess the bright side is that one of these days I’ll become one of the people Malcolm Gladwell writes about in The Tipping Point. “A Connector.” The hottest contemporary shoe designs come from Finland? You heard it here first. That’s gotta be worth something.

Connector. I’ll put it on my next business card.

For now, I’d better bounce.
