Tuesday 28 June - One year on
One year ago today, on the day I moved to Berlin, I started this blog.
I've recently been thinking about it, and debating whether to continue or not... The thing is, I wanted to start the blog to document all the varied, exciting and new things I would be doing after I moved to Berlin. At the time, I had no idea what I would be doing, where my life would take me and the decisions I would make.
After living in Berlin and Austria, I have moved to London. Over time, I have taken on a full-time job, and moved in with Andy. Now, often, what I am doing at 11.11am is sitting at my desk doing work, and what I am doing at 11.11pm is sleeping. It doesn't make the most interesting reading.
I love my life, wholeheartedly, and wouldn't change it at all at the moment. I couldn't be less bored, but I am aware that reading about someone else's everyday life can definitely be boring. So... should I carry on?
I have become mega attached to this blog. It means I pay more attention to what I am doing each day, I take more photos and I have kept up with writing. I have learnt more about blogging, read more of other people's blogs and been proud to show my blog to people. Most importantly, I now have the most amazing online diary that documents, in detail, the best year of my life.
It's been a year that has seen me achieve more than I've ever achieved in a year, including:
Live, and fall in love with, a different country
Learn to snowboard (badly)
Have my very first garden of my own
Live in the same city as ALL my best friends from uni
Get a pay rise
Own three different bikes
Launch my website
Move in with the love of my life, twice
Meet Hanson, my idols
This is only a (very) small selection of the things that have happened to me this year, and I could write much more. But I do wonder if I would have remembered all these wonderful, challenging and exciting things if I hadn't blogged about it all. Though I'm pretty sure I would have remembered meeting Hanson...
The blog has had almost 18,000 hits in total, and I don't want to give up on it completely. But, from now, I might not update it daily. We'll see...
