A quote from my best friend: "Life isn't always as exciting as studying abroad."
|Elephant and Castle, London (not as cool as it sounds)|
More people follow this blog! Which is kind of silly, since I did nothing -- zilch -- for four months. But somehow, the follower-box says 120. Cool. Welcome. I'll try to be more interesting.
I have the travel bug. Is anyone surprised?
I'm newly obsessed with Tom Petty.
I look right-left-right when I cross streets.
|A foggy day in London-town|
I'm taking a break (a really long one) from Twitter. I'm threatening to take a break from Facebook (although the addiction might be too strong). And I'm not going to blog as much as I used to (before August, I mean). Synopsis: I'm shrinking my online presence. Maybe a result of four months of sketchy internet access -- which made me realize that the internet is not as necessary or cool as I used to think. Obviously it's still necessary for some things, and cool in general, but I liked being away. It gave me perspective.
And, biggest for last, I'm re-evaluating my identity as a writer. Haha, don't worry, I'm not quitting. I'm just re-thinking. Processing. Re-prioritizing. Once upon a time, my life-formula was this: I am Kirsten, therefore I write. Fast-forward four months of perspective: I am Kirsten. I also write, but mostly I'm just Kirsten. It's a good thing, I promise.
And sometime soon, I'll be back to rave about a couple life-changing books on my post-trip reading list. So don't disappear.
