Hi. It’s been a while.
I’ve remembered this blog a lot in the last few weeks. More than once, I’ve thought, I need to post again soon. But I haven’t. To be honest, I’ve had the time. Especially since my exams (and my whole degree, in fact) ended in June, I could’ve done a two whole months of blogging by now.
But I didn’t, for a number of reasons. First of all, I felt scared to look at the last post I wrote. With every passing day, it was getting older and older, and I didn’t want to know when I last uploaded (March. Ouch). Secondly, and more importantly, every time I tried to write something, it felt forced. I couldn’t find a good place to start, and the words felt not quite right, somehow.
And finally, I knew that upon my return, I’d probably have to do the whole “sorry I haven’t written in a while“ drill again. I wasn’t sure if I had to suffer through that cringy routine again, or whether I could just continue without acknowledging my absence. Obviously now you know what I chose.
