So in the last few months a lot has changed. I’ve moved out of my family’s home, flown across the ocean, and started university in Wales. Most of the changes that have come with all that have been positive. However, a few good habits I had developed back at home have not yet found their place in my new life. To name a few:
-Regular running (I had finally reached my goal of being able to run 6 miles 3-4 times a week before I moved. Since I have gotten here I have gone on less than 2 proper runs. Mostly I walk out of the house thinking I am going to run and then just end up walking around for an hour or so. It isn’t terrible, but I want to get back to proper running).
-Language learning (I was working really hard to self-study Italian last year, but I haven’t made time for Italian in my new schedule. I think that needs to change).
And last but not least,
I really really miss blogging. I miss being able to rant out little mishaps and rants. Most of all, I miss waiting impatiently for comments and then having my day made each time someone did take the time to leave a written response.
The longer I’ve stayed away from blogging the more intimidating it has become. How am I ever supposed to keep you all up to date with the incredible changes going on EVERYWHERE? I’ve decided that the best way to go about it is to just jump head long in again. I can’t explain everything that is going on around me and inside of me, but maybe if I just throw out thoughts and misadventures here and there, some dirt and total hogwash might spill out, but eventually I’ll be able to share a quality representation of my new life. Please bear with me as I find my feet again and figure out what blogging about my Welsh life should look like.
If you read all the way through that, thank you so much. You mean a lot to me. You can expect that in the next few days I will be posting in bits, small vignettes and stories when pieced together make a picture of my new life, even my new inner being. Hopefully these little pictures will be entertaining and worth your while.
Some things to be looking forward to:
-My Struggle with the Welsh Language
-How I’ve embarrassed myself and accidentally exposed my non-britishness
-Learning to cope with the strange (okay, different) culture of University education in the UK
-Fighting the British accent
-Coping with British culture
