the sitch

I just read this article in the Irish Times about Irish people returning to Ireland despite high unemployment. I think this means I have more competition for jobs than ever before? Awesome. Anyway, I thought the profile stories in the second half were interesting to read because they aren't just about Ireland.

They are about living abroad in general and the readjustment that must take place when people return. Anybody that has studied abroad or traveled for an extended period of time can relate to the disorientation, the glorified longing for 'home', and all the changes that happen when you live in a different culture. Basically, here are different people's attempt to define where they belong: Irish Emigrants Return.

Life is crazy these days!
