We are pretty sure that it is some sort of teenaged rebellion and I do not really blame the girl if she is mad at me for making her move here to Singapore. If I were in her position I would feel pretty upset at me right now as well. At any rate she will be seeing the tutors from www.intellicat-tuition.com and I suspect she will not be any happier for it. The truth is that she is obviously smart enough to take all of her classes and get all A’s on them the same as she always has in the past. Of course in the past she was the loving daughter who lived a nearly idyllic existence in a gated community near the Gold Coast of New South Wales. She was born in New York City when I was just starting out with the company.
In fact we lived in a tiny apartment when she was born, but Nell has lived in Australia for nearly all of her life and you would think that she was Australian, even though her father is from the backwoods of Western North Carolina and her Mom is from a little town near where Bruce Springsteen grew up. I am not quite sure what to think about her rebellion, but it is quite understandable. Obviously we could not leave her in Australia alone. I am really hoping that this assignment will be temporary, because to be honest I am not liking the congested nature of Singapore. I was born on a farm and it was in a very rural area. We had more deer and cows than we had people and I did not mind that too much. I did not like New York City all that much either, but even it was not this crowded.
