I guess a lot can happen in 10 months. None of which I documented on this blog as I thought I would! My bad.

I think perhaps TOO many things happened. Too many thoughts and feelings ran through me, and the last thing I wanted to do was write them down and make them real. I guess I thought maybe if those thoughts and feelings stayed in my head that they wouldn’t be so bad, or that they wouldn’t be allowed to take over me. Obviously, that’s not how we work, and despite keeping things to myself and not sharing them on this blog for all to see, the last 10 months were, well, a lot.

No one died, I’m healthy, life is fine! There was just a lot of change. Changes that I brought on myself, changes that were inevitable, and some changes that you just can’t predict when so much is changing! Am I right? ;)

I now live in a cute little apartment with a lovely friend in NYC. I can’t even believe I can type that sentence and that it is true! The last time I posted I was living with my parents in Toronto going through the painful process of potentially moving to the US. How time flies….and yet, how slowly it went before I finally got here!

My hope is that in the next little while I will update this blog with moments of the journey I had to get here. My inspirations, my downfalls, my friends…everything that’s been in my little head for the last 10 months.

Here’s hoping things stay like this for the next little while and I can finally look back and reflect on my crazy year. It’s been a crazy one, but I want to make sure I can appreciate it and be thankful for all of it.

Stay tuned :)

I stopped blogging for a year. Ooops.

I’d be lying if I said there was a good reason for it. I’d be lying if I said I even remembered why. However, I do have a vague memory of obsessively getting into Netflix….and then my life going down a slippery sloppy slope of late night binges on classic tv shows. After that, I don’t know what happened. The last year contained a plethora of highs and lows, tears and laughter, doubts and fears…and at the same time moments of intense clarity. There were births and deaths, family drama, vacations, health scares, victories, and on some occasions everything went as planned.

There were at least a dozen times I thought to restart this whole blogging situation. It had been fun. I had gotten a nice response from people and I had liked it. I also realized that I really love to write. Writing actually started taking up more and more of my time. I wrote a pilot. Then I rewrote it. Then I wrote a 2 pager for a teen interview show. After that I wrote a webseries. Then I had to get a new notebook because I had crammed so much writing and ideas into the first one. In the end, I realized none of that writing was going to help me earn a living in the immediate future. So, I snapped out of it and started to focus on a job that would. That was, I think, when all creativity drained from my body like money drains from my bank account. It wasn’t pretty.

However, in the last few months I have once again felt some creativity in my system and I guess now is as good a time as any to get back on the blogging bandwagon. I look forward to sharing with you, all 5 of you, the people, places and things that have been inspiring me as of late.

I hope the last year treated you all well. I promise to check in more often from now on :)
