The Votes are IN

Thanks for voting on my future, everyone, in last week's "Where Should Erica Live in 2010" blog poll! If this were a reality show, right in this moment, they'd be whisking me off to... ITALY!!!

Yes, it appears that vast majority of you people want me in Italy. And although most of your reasons seems selfish (you want a free place to stay there!!!), I'm still listening and considering carefully your opinions. Which is why I've started researching how I can realistically make any of these options work. Ugh, it's making my head spin. Getting a visa and a job in both Italy and Brazil has potential to be a total nightmare.

Check out this article, written by a guy from Boston who went and lived in Italy to tach English. It's optimistic, but quite daunting. Am I really ready to take all this on?

I'm not sure. I'm just thinking out loud.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who voted! And kick myself a little bit for allowing you to vote anonymously, because now I have no clue who voted for what, and that's annoying. Le sigh.

Final tallies, out of 46 total votes, are:

NYC: 4 votes (8%)
Brazil: 9 votes (19%)
Italy: 18 votes (39%)
Mexico: 6 votes (13%)
Argentina: 9 votes (19%)
