It's been a month since I moved to the US and my whole life did a complete 360-degree turn. It's also the same reason why I haven't been blogging for a while. I am currently juggling new roles and I could say that I'm adjusting well to this new life.

Because I am not a 'housewife' yet, homemaker seems to fit me better. I am living with my boyfriend, which gives me a lot of household chores: cleaning, laundry, cooking, ironing (!), etc. Oh boy, it is not easy to maintain a whole house by yourself, and harder for somebody who was never used to doing chores regularly. I feel frustrated at myself sometimes on why I didn't learn these things earlier. However, I'm learning and getting better at it (especially cooking). Thanks to the boyfie for being so patient with me.
|Inside my university|
I went back to school last January for my graduate degree in George Mason University. For the longest time, I have this fear of doing academics again as I was 'traumatized' by the constant pressure back in college. Fortunately, the school environment here in the US is completely different from the Philippines. I am grateful that my professors and classmates are quite welcoming and helpful, my class schedule is awesome, and my university is so beautiful.
