Dear Readers, Friends, Characters, and Glitteratis,
As the New Year approaches, it brings with it some big changes, some metamorphoses, some new choices and decisions, and the cap on a period of growing, learning, spreading of wings, and sharing of these experiences. It's only been in the past two years that I've been sharing these things publicly in this blog, and the experience has been nothing less than rewarding. Your kind emails, comments, well-wishes, opportunities and encouragement have continued to support me in my journey as a twentysomething. I know, in my heart, that I am not alone in my struggles and triumphs, and I hope that, if anything, you have found a mirrored voice here.
At the same time, my life is moving in some new directions and, as such, the shape and content of this blog must naturally evolve. I appreciate your patience with this work-in-progress as Ye Olde Blog and I decide how we are going to peacefully co-exist. It's my wish to keep things alive and well, but also a realistic vision that it's time to put my energies into other areas of my life.
For the time being, my goal will be to rely on a new format while I make some necessary changes. I hope that you continue to visit me here, and promise to update you on my new adventures in return.
Thank you, endlessly, for checking in on me. For reading, for caring, for laughing, for sharing your own ups and downs, and to my dear, dear friends and family for so kindly allowing me to borrow their intelligence, wisdom, and hilarity to season my stories which would otherwise be bland without their presence. I promise not to desert you, Glitteratis, just to say that it's time for necessary change and to hope that you'll stick by me.
The New Glitterati
