As a European immigrant to America, I feel “entitled” to such basic human rights as, oh, I don’t know, health care, a living wage, a good retirement, and other such craziness.

    You and me both, Karolina! I just dropped by to read a couple of your posts. I like your writing style. It’s really, really good. Blue Girl in Paradise is very clever. I shall be back.

      Many thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed my writing! I posted a link to your Rapture blog on my Facebook page, hope you don’t mind 🙂

    I got here through your last satirical post on Miley Cyrus. I truly admire your wit and love your writing voice! It must be interesting viewing America and all her goofs and shenanigans through a European perspective. For a Singaporean, this country sure is amusing, though mostly just downright befuddling.

      karenzai, I’ve lived here in the States for a long time now, and I’m still befuddled by this place. That’s the beauty of being an immigrant! But the nice thing about it is that you’re able to view things from a different perspective, which is interesting to say the least 🙂

      Thank you for visiting and reading my blog! I love meeting other bloggers and writers on here, it’s so much fun.

        Thank you so much for your encouraging comments on my pro-life post. 🙂 It’s always great to meet other awesome likeminded folks online! I’d like to invite to answer this question I posted on Quora: “In just one sentence, why are you pro-life/pro-choice?” (http://www.quora.com/Abortion/In-just-one-sentence-why-are-you-pro-life-pro-choice)

        Thank you so much and shine on 🙂

          Hmmmm, while I’m sure I’ve really enjoyed your posts, I don’t recall leaving a comment on the pro-life one. We might disagree when it comes to the abortion issue, which is fine 😉

          1. karenzai Says:

            Haha, I was referring to the post about how “life is what you make it” is false. The post was inspired by pro-life reflections (in particular arguments that abortion is better than letting the kid live a miserable life), though I intentionally kept it vague so it can apply to other stuff, and would be relevant even to people who don’t identify as pro-life, such as yourself! 🙂

              Ohhhh, I see. Yes, I did enjoy that post quite a bit…sneaky sneaky 😉

    In the U.S., that’s revolutionary talk.

    I’m an American living in the U.K., and I just posted a piece about nationality and culture. If it sparks off a response and you want to post something on the topic, I’ll be happy to link to it. It’s at http://notesfromtheuk.com/2015/01/23/looking-american-on-culture-nationality-and-immigration/.

      I know! To me, these are basic ideas, but when I talk to some Americans, they perceive it as totalitarian Communist thinking…huh?

      Yes, I’ve read your blog and Liked it after nananoyz reposted it 🙂 It sums up the immigrant experience very well. There’s no way for me to blend into American society perfectly without erasing an entire portion of my past life…which isn’t going to happen.

      And thank you for visiting mine as well 🙂


  6. As a ‘Euro’ born myself, I couldn’t agree with you more! While many things here are fantastic, there are a lot of things that could be improved upon. 🙂

    1. eurobrat Says:

      Yep…and my philosophy is, keep working at it!
