The hawk eyed among you will notice I haven't posted on this blog in two years. TWO YEARS. I've not completely disappeared from the blogging world and have actively kept reading and commenting on blogs and twitter but I shut my own blog down.
Why? Lots of reasons. I'm 20 now and I went through some huge changes, one of which was a break up of a 5 year relationship. An earth shattering, heart breaking, break up. The kind that takes a lot of time and tears to heal from. I needed to work on enjoying my new single life (which I now love!) and learning how to go from an 'us' to a 'me'. If you've been through this before you'll know what I mean.
Another reason, I went to uni and got my BA degree in Communications & PR and got swamped by uni work, real work and alcohol. In no particular order. If I'm being honest, I got lazy. I let life get in the way and I changed my priorities, I don't regret that. It's what I needed at the time and I'm now more happy and self aware than before.
One huge change, the biggest in my life, is that I moved to AUSTRALIA. Sydney to be exact. I did this alone. By myself. Sometimes I can't believe I got the balls to do that (The 17 year old, long term relationship girl who started this blog wouldn't have dreamed!) I now live in one of the most beautiful and diverse cities in the world and work in PR & Events. I am that girl. The one I was meant to be and the one I didn't know I wanted to be. I am the girl who go's for what she wants, seizes opportunities and moved abroad alone. Wow.
So this blog is finally going to be me. I used to feel pressure to write posts and for them to fit in a certain blogger box or what was right and wrong. Now, I'm going to write about the things I want and hope you enjoy them too. This is a hobby and something I love and I'm so glad to be back.
I've deleted a loooot of my earlier posts. About 30 to be exact. They were young and cringey and I had to get rid of them but I kept a few. I kept them because although they are embarrassing and naive and teenagery they are mine and at the time I was so proud of them. I'm a different person now but the excited for life girl is still tucked away inside me and these posts are a nice reminder. If you're new here have a look.
So.. I'm in Sydney. I have a degree and a career. I'm single and I'm happy. A lot has changed since we last spoke. What have you been up to?
