Wow, I am starting my 15th year of blogging!
This blog is definitely still going strong. If it were a child, it's a teenager now, possibly with some issues. Though I must say, this blog is rather well-behaved.
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. And in the past year I visited two new countries, Vietnam and Turkey, bringing my country count to 50. I also came back to a few countries, such as Denmark, Qatar, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Spain. 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. Heck, I even applied for permanent residence.
I suppose aside from that, there isn't any major change. I still like my life outside of academia. In fact, I would even say I am having fun with it, learning new things along the way (ask me about data protection and you'll get what I mean).
So this is the beginning of Year 15. 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 15. I hope you'll still hang around.
