A career, friends, family, and place to call home–I gave up life as I knew it for the possibility of life as it could become. Five years later as a seasoned and serial expatriate, I've lived in four countries on three continents and currently reside in Singapore. So far, it's been a wonderful ride!
Actually, I never really understood the meaning of “like a bad penny that always pops up.” What make a penny bad, anyway? It is, after all, worth just a single cent. Does it really matter? I mean, really, how many times have you ever notice that a penny popped up or not?
A quarter? It’s unlikely you’d notice, and it’s 25 times the value.
A Susie B. dollar coin? Unless you mistook it for a quarter.
A two dollar coin? In Euros, this actually exists. So, maybe.
A newly-minted, platinum TRILLION dollar coin (best said in Dr. Evil’s voice)? Well, the White House just squashed that idea, so start saving your pennies after all. The debt ceiling crisis is fast approaching.
But I digress…
I survived my dreaded transcontinental flights to and from the United States, and have returned to Singapore after nearly a month of travel. During my vacation, I mostly forsook virtual communication in favor of spending face-to-face time with friends and family back home. It’s not every day I get to see them. I know you understand.
But, I am happy to be back. My mind was racing with potential posts the whole time I was away. And since my thoughts are worth about as much as a penny, I’ll be back next week to share a few of them with you. If am really lucky, I’ll be able to share a whole two cents with you.
Please do pop by, won’t you?
