So apparently it’s been a whole year since I’ve visited these parts. ‘These parts’ being WordPress.
This is technically not true. I’ve dropped by occasionally. Sat in front of the computer, willing myself to write something for it to just… not happen. For a while I had excuses – I was abroad and then I was busy. But then it got to a weird amount of time since I posted and I didn’t see the point.
The thirteen months or so since I posted have been a mixed bag. I moved back home. I went to Amsterdam and New York and turned twenty-two. I got a job (albeit a shitty one) and went to Edinburgh for New Year. Work at my shitty part-time job dried up and I ended my relationship then quit my job without having another one lined up. I’ve had a bunch of interviews, some more interesting and promising than others but all to no avail. And that’s just in my own personal life, let alone getting into the political shitstorm that currently ensues and has been circling since last year.
This mixed bag of goings-on has made the last year a very interesting one mentally, if by “interesting” you mean “up and down more times than one of those fairground rides that take you straight up into the air and back down within a matter of seconds (I don’t know what it’s called and Google was useless. Does anybody actually know what it’s called?). It’s exhausting to say the least, but my most recent “oh my god what am I doing with my life?” existential panic, brought on during one of the aforementioned interviews, made me realise that if I don’t start actively trying to change that now, then when will I?
So now I’m back here writing into the void, because what is one more mediocre millenial white girl’s blog in the oversaturated sea of opinion that is the internet? Hopefully this time around I’ll be better at posting semi-regularly, with content about pop culture, television, the political shitstorm and whatever else seems to be relevant. In time, I’m hoping to add some vlogging into the mix but that is entirely dependent on resources.
That’s the plan, at least.
P.S. here’s a picture of my dog, just because:
