I disappeared for a while. Turns out blogging is a lot more effort than I was wiling to give!
Now, let’s see what has changed in the last while:
- I got a minor hair cut
- I went to JAPAN! (more on that later)
- I QUIT MY JOB
- I’M MOVING TO PARIS
Now, as a note, these did not all occur in a heartbeat. I made up my mind to move when I got back from Japan, and then I booked my ticket a week or two later. And then I saved. And saved. And SAVED my money. And now I’m living with my parents, my bag is packed and I am doing my goodbyes.
Essentially I got to a point where I couldn’t keep telling myself I was going to do something later. If I kept waiting until I was ready I would never do it – so I booked my ticket and told myself I better be ready to go.
Want to know a secret?
Super not ready. Not even a little. Freaking out a bit.
But that’s okay? We’ll see what happens, I suppose.
Now this is going to be where I pathetically attempt to make sense of the mess I’ve made of everything, and hopefully not fall into the tired and rehashed tropes that always occur when a North American moves to Paris.
So what can you (hopefully) expect?
Lots of neurotic worrying!
Way too many pictures of food!
And, because I have no friends in France, long and incredibly dull stories of my day-to-day life.
If all else fails, I’ll just burn all my belongings and run somewhere else, even further away!
