Bonjour. It’s been a while. What has happened? Let me tell you. This is a job I can only do for a year. I can’t imagine having to deal with it much more. It’s more than just nannying job. First of all, you’re managing more than just a child. If it was just that, many… Continue reading An Honest Account of Nannying
I haven’t written for this site in just over a month. It has been difficult to settle, to deal with everything. Now, I feel some stability, some feeling that I can handle things.

It is a week until the penultimate day when I face one of the scariest decisions I’ve made in my life. A new life from a small suitcase. I thought leaving Bateson (my… Continue reading A Week Left
