After living overseas for a couple years, I returned to the US and settled in LA to finish my grad program. It’s been almost three years and I can’t seem to live this smog filled city of sunshine and plastic. I finished my program and in the process I met my husband. Now I’m living in Ch-ood (with a guttural roll) and find my way in this life as an emerging professional. I shift in-between the delicate balance as a career driven woman and a wife, living as an American in an Israeli home, thinking like a feminist, working in a patriarchy. My life in LA is a series of borders, startling the lines in-between cultures and identity.
