Hello world!

Alli and I have officially entered the world of blogging.  We are beginning this next phase of life with a mixture of excitement for the potential personal and professional growth that these next two years can bring as well as trepidation for adjusting to life in a new country.  So far, we’ve made two major decisions for next year: the first, was to buy tickets for a departure flight schedule for after Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and the second, just made tonight, was to move into an apartment in Neve Daniel.

Right now, the most stressful and scariest parts are knowing that we will often look foolish as we struggle with the language and wondering if we made the right decision about the apartment and where we will live.  From everything we’ve heard to this point, we’re convinced that Neve Daniel is right for us and this apartment will fit our needs and desires…but what if we’re wrong?  What if we get there and we’re completely miserable?  As a mathematician, I obsess over small details that can completely change calculations before ultimately coming to a definitive proof of a theorem.  This sort of decision is so hard for me because I can’t prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that our decision is correct, we just have to trust our instincts and the information available to us.  Anyway, that’s all for now.

  1. As my friend Benji Lovitt, American-Israeli comedian says, Yehiyeh B’seder! That’s all you need to know. 🙂

    First of all, I’m glad to see you use the correct format accepted by all programmers for a first post – i.e. “Hello World”. It’s a good start! 😉

    Welcome, also, to the world of blogging. It has it’s ups and downs, but overall, the things you put here will be there for you – and others – for a long time after these years are done. Good luck.

    And welcome finally to Israel! Can’t wait to welcome you here…
