Hi, I’m Kassie! I’m an American expat living in Warwick, England. I grew up in Northern California and moved to England early 2012. Yes, it’s a cultural shock moving abroad but I’m enjoying it, despite the lack of sunshine at times! During graduate school, I studied abroad in Wales and it changed my life for the better (note the Welshman in my pic). Not soon after I finished university I started looking at ways to live abroad.
I got lucky. I qualified for dual citizenship through my Italian ancestry. After a year of research and consulate visits, I got my red EU passport! Fast forward a few months and I sold the majority of my belongings, packed my life into two suitcases, and purchased a one-way ticket to Britain. And there you go!
My blog is a mixture of living in Britain with a healthy dose of nerdy commentary. Here’s a list of subjects I’ll most likely focus on:
- astronomy, of all sorts
- comic book arguments
- fantasy, science fiction books
- television shows
- conventions, of all sorts
- 80s and 90s references
- pursuing dual citizenship
It took me a while to accept my inner nerd. It’s not just my passion, I live and breathe science, sci-fi and fantasy. I like to think it keeps my inner child happy.
Thanks for reading, stop by anytime.
Do feel free to send me Sriracha, or anything from the States food-wise anytime. Seriously … I do miss the diversity of American Cuisine!
