Wow, I am starting my 14th year of blogging!
This blog is still going strong. If it were a child, it's a teenager now.
Nothing much has changed around here. There are still things I regularly talk about. I am still posting pictures of travels I have done recently, and I am still talking about travel, books, music, or theatre, which are the things I feel most interested in. There's still the random rant. This pattern will still persist.
Speaking of repeating patterns, I still travelled. However, in the past year I haven't visited a new country at all. I did come back to a few countries, however, such as Poland, the United Kingdom, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands (twice), Hungary (twice), Mexico, France, and the USA. And as before, I also went to a few places within Germany. And yes, I am still in Berlin, as roots have been planted by now.
Some changes have occurred, however, the most major one being the fact that I left academia. I talk about it every now and then, but for the most part, I just keep it in the background. I suppose unlike when I was in academia, work doesn't pre-occupy my personal time that much. So I suppose that's a reason why I don't talk too much about work when I am blogging, as after all, I blog for myself and my own personal satisfaction.
So this is the beginning of Year 14. Again, I still don't know how long I'll keep this blog up, but for the moment, it will stay. It's a nice distraction anyway.
So there, onward to Year 14. I hope you'll still hang around.
