Back to Blogging

Seems like a very long time since I sat in front of this screen to hammer out a blog post. The last few months have been very … hectic? Confusing? Emotional? There a lot of adjectives I could use, so I’ll just run through the highs and lows.

Highs:

  • I got headhuntet for my dream job.
  • I got out of the Activity Based Working hell that was driving me nuts.
  • I got out of the cubicle I always hated.
  • I got my own office – big windows and everything!
  • I got to see Les Misérables again.
  • I got to see Hamilton.
  • I had an amazing summer with my son.
  • I reconnected with an old friend who turned one of the worst days of my life into one of the best.

Lows:

  • My father’s cancer treatment stopped working and there are no more treatments they can give him (that was the worst day from the section above).
  • The heat-wave we experienced made it almost impossible for him to catch his breath on a daily basis.
  • Two of my closest friends succumbed to serious stress symptoms and are on sick leave.

I had planned to get back to blogging this summer. I had planned to bake and make desserts and research my next novel. Not one of those things happened.

But now it’s a new school year. It’s Denmark, we go back in August. Every August I feel like it’s a new beginning. All those years in school don’t wash away so easily. While I bask in the joy of my new job, I also want to get back to writing.

I don’t think I can commit to blogging once a day again, but I will try to do at least once or twice a week.

  1. Hello.
    I am very sorry to hear about your dad’s cancer treatment. I am not sure which stage he is in but have you heard of the Gerson therapy? If you haven’t, it wouldn’t hurt looking into it.
