As time goes on, this blog has little to do with writing to anyone else (ie. the reader) and more to do with writing to myself. This big over share diary I keep online is something I often refer back to. This eve i’ve been staring at this screen wondering what to write (because I feel obliged to do so) after having read about the days leading up to my last birthday.
This year gone has been in limbo, still finding my place, my balance in what I want and what’s required of me. A lot can change in a year, and I find myself a little imbalanced today without the friends living overseas. I’m not big on birthdays, i’d rather keep it relatively low key but in saying that, they are important too. I spent the day with Ella, just doing little things not too out of the ordinary.. we ate ssamgyupsaal (K BBQ) for lunch and familiar foreign things alike which meant a lot to me- to be able to share the things that matter to me. I’m happy today, she’s amazing.. she fills the little voids I try to avoid.
