I know I’ve been quiet these past two weeks or so. I’ve been spending much needed time with someone I love and my mind has been focused on writing my book and relaxing in preparation for the year to come. Because I can feel it’s going to be a crazy one!
2011 has probably been one of the most challenging years of my life. I chose to leave my PhD, my relationship was in trouble and I had to find a new path for my life (which I am still somewhat looking for, but things are getting clearer now).
But it wasn’t all bad, either. I made new friends and was lucky to spend a few months living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. That might last, or not, but we’ll see.
I now have a better idea of the kind of person I am and the kind of life I want, what sacrifices I’m willing to make vs those I’m not ready to. I’m starting a PR diploma, both because without learning my brain goes to mush and because I want some market skills to add to my resume.
This has been a year of contrasts. I’m a really adaptable person in general, but I am looking forward to something a bit more stable in my life.
Tomorrow: looking forward to 2012.
