Ahh, that feels good.
Six months ago, I completed my job at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC and moved 2200 km south to San Diego, CA. Make that 1400 miles.
Posting to this blog fell off the bottom of my list of tasks that included getting immigration papers, getting across the border, finding health care, buying a house, starting a new job, getting the kids in school,… I promised myself I’d start blogging again as soon as, well, you know, when things settled down. Yeah, like that’s going to happen anytime soon. So, over the Christmas break, I bit the bullet, set up this new website, and here I am, writing my first post from San Diego!
I’ve got to say, I really missed blogging. I can’t count how many times in the last few months I’ve thought to myself, “This would make a really good post. ” I have a stack of post-it notes of potential posts. It’s hard to go back through that stack, though: I need the adrenaline of that moment of discovery or realization to write a post.
I’m looking forward to this new adventure.
