Life finds a way

Hey there, internet! Life has been crazy in the last year, so blogging fell to the bottom of my list of priorities. It’s a shame.  I love writing, and I’ve missed it terribly. Fortunately, I woke up an hour before my alarm today. Yay, sleep deprivation!

To catch you up, here’s a list of big things that have happened in the last year:

  • I ended a very important relationship
  • I got sexually harassed by my flatmate and moved out while he was away at work
  • I began a new relationship
  • I bashed heads with my boss at one language school and ended up quitting
  • I renewed my visa to stay in Germany
  • I asked my boss at my other school for a raise (and got it!)
  • I decided to go back to school
  • I started drawing again, which I haven’t done since I was a teenager
  • My family came to visit me for the first time

This past year has had a lot of extremes. There are days where I feel like “fuck this place and everyone in it, I wanna go home.” There are days where I think about where I came from and just feel lucky to be here at all. I constantly have to remind myself that this is actually my life now.

Fortunately, there have been more good days than bad days. When I think about how overwhelmed I felt in the last year, I’m shocked at all the normal, everyday things that were mixed into that same span of time. I’m shocked at all the good experiences I was able to have even when I felt like the world was ending.

To quote one of my all-time favorite authors, “Life finds a way.”

Here’s a doodle I made:


I’ve also rediscovered my love for dry-erase boards

Anyway, that’s all for now. Toodles!
