Hi, I’m not dead!
2017 has been nothing short of crazy thus far – I’ve been silent on this blog since November because I just didn’t have anything I wanted to write about. My heart wasn’t in it, my head wasn’t in it and emotionally 2016 was quite terrible. 2017, I hoped, would be a much better year, and it is.
That’s not to say a lot hasn’t happened in order to get to where I am now. And then from ‘nothing to write about’ life got a little bit crazy and this blog of mine got put on the back burner.
I’m in a much better place now – happier, better clarity of mind and it’s kind of like forcing myself into this situation is helping me progress towards my goals and generally getting my life on track.
I started grad school in January and while I’m still quite lost, I’m less lost than when I first walked onto campus and attended my first class. I have one exam and some TA duties to settle before my first semester is over. Time is passing by really fast, and it feels like longer than the four (almost five, now) months that have passed.
I am getting older. There are so many implications in that statement.
I am learning what it means to get older, what it means being in my twenties, what it means to be human.
There is so much to learn.
I really have missed writing, especially when I read someone else’s blog – I love having a place where I can look back and read my memories immortalized in words. There are just some things that need to be written about, some memories that shouldn’t be left slowly fading away in my mind.
So many things have happened in 2017, will be happening in 2017.
And I am not alone in this.
Cheers to a great 8 more months ahead!
Till next time,
