happy 2nd blogoversary to me!
it seemed like it was just yesterday that my blog turned one. my, time flew by faster than i could say 'twas brillig, and the slithy toves, did gyre and gimble in the wabe; all mimsy were the borogoves, and the mome raths outgrabe' twenty five times in a row.
glancing back on the past two years of my blog, it is obvious to see what my life revolves around. and i've been pretty happy at the turn of events.
peggy said something to me the other day that we both know to be true. we both believe that things happen for a reason. that past events shaped not only who we are, but also where we are today. what may seem random and singular, all contribute to a greater design.
she said if i had not gone to new york, i would not have the job i love today. and if i did not have the job i have today, it probably would have been a slim to none chance that sean and i would've met. (we don't share the same friends or acquaintances and we're both homebody nerds)
i also know that if i hadn't gone to new york, i may not have become the social media savvy person i am today. being that far away, i had to turn to writing down my adventures and cc'ing them to my closest friends (like a regular news bulletin)
i collected so many memories, learned from so many people and experienced so many things that i never knew of before. and in such a short amount of time. my world had opened up exponentially and i was literally bursting at the seams, trying to figure out how to share it with anyone who may be interested. but more importantly, how do i remember it all?
my time away had such a profound effect on me that when i returned to vancouver, i felt this overwhelming need to organize the thousands of thoughts in my head. and thus this blog was borne.
and how far back in the chain of events of my life was the pivotal point that brought me to this place right now? so many variables. so many choices. a multitude of decisions that could've led me elsewhere.
here i am today, all beamish-like. and i thank my lucky stars. and hope for a continuation of a most frabjous life.
and also the commitment to share it.
thank you everyone for all your love and support. and thank you for reading.
