When we left Poland I had no idea what I was in for. That was a good thing, because having known how hard it would be, I might have stayed put. Many of my childhood friends have done very well because the change of political system and joining the EU afforded many young people to advance quickly, having been in the right place at the right time. But I never looked back and never regretted 'adopting' a new homeland. It was very freeing to be away from all the expectations that are bestowed upon you when you build your life surrounded by your family and people you grew up with. This was my very own, personal Declaration of Independence. I might have been naive in many ways, but I thought that I am choosing my destiny and shaping it the way I wanted. Coming from a country always at mercy of its own geography and powerful political winds, this seemed like a quintessentially American thing to do.

Now, few outifts in my favorite colors, that just happen to be flag colors (coincidentally, for both Poland and United States):
