a sort-of secret

Well I know it's not posted anywhere (except here) but it's true: I'm moving to Scotland in the fall.

I've been accepted into the Masters/PhD program in creative writing at St. Andrews in Fife, and this September I'm leaving my life in NYC behind to return to my Scottish roots!
It's wild because I put this in motion literally years ago and now it's really happening. Living in Scotland is one of my life time goals, but I anticipate some serious complications when it comes to leaving the place where I've built my career and my life for most of my 20's.

Like leaving my job. Which is why even though I've wanted to shout to everyone, I can't quite tell the world yet. But I have so many things swirling around in my head about this move, so I wanted to write them down and share them with a few select folks.

So that's it for now. More soon!


  1. I found your blog on Expat forum. I'll also be attending St. Andrews for the Masters creative writing program! It's getting so close. Maybe I'll see you around!

  2. Hi Brianna! Awesome! I keep trying to find anyone in our program and you're the first, so...yay! see you soon I'm sure. There's only like 7 of us. :)

  3. I'm starting in the development office in St. Andrews in December . . . moving from Portland, OR! I'll enjoy reading about your experiences till then.

  4. Thanks, Kurstin! Hope your move goes well! Let me know if I can help with anything. :)


Why Stop Now?
