I haven't been able to get to my computer as often as I'd like to read your assignments and comments lately. I have been travelling through England visiting my family and friends for the past three weeks and filling myself with all things English again.
I have been reading the assignment for month two and am starting to get very nervous. I am not sure how I am going to be able to do this one when the only thing on my mind is the fact that I am leaving here again soon to return to our home in America. Maybe I should write about the trials and tribulations of immigration to a new land? How difficult it is to leave family behind and live in a state of semi-belonging to either two countries or nowhere at all. But then I' m not sure I want to focus on that subject either right now, as I think I'd rather pretend it wasn't happening!!!
Does immigration sound like a reasonable topic for a frontline journal? I don't think it fits in with the guidelines, as it's not breaking news and well I wouldn't be writing from my experiences of life in one country, rather it would be my experiences of living and being somewhere between two of them. I don't know what else to do at this point though. Has anyone heard about any breaking news in New York since I've been gone that perhaps I should write about instead?
"Speak" to you all again soon,
