She's moved on

Way back in 2009, I blogged about this person I know who lost her job, etc. (see here). As a virtual friend, we've never met in person, but we're in each other's FB and Twitter friend lists. I also read her blog every now and then. Nowadays, reading her blog and Twitter updates just makes me happy. Since she was having a tough time finding a job here in the US, she went to Italy and stayed with relatives for a bit of time. After that, she applied to graduate school in Paris and is currently studying there.

I remember what happened with her job in NY before, and knowing how far she's come now is just astounding. She's moved on in more ways than one. She's a constant reminder that there are always new books and new chapters ahead for all of us. All we have to do is hang in there.
