Adele 25 album cover

Hello, Blogosphere. It’s me. I was kind of wondering if after all of these years you’d like to hear from me. Maybe go over things. About you, about me.

I mean, I’ve been hiding a million miles away for the last four years, and a lot has happened in my life. In your life, too, I would imagine. I guess what I’m trying to say is that a lot has changed since we last saw each other, blogosphere. We’ve both changed too. I wanted to tell you that I was sorry for breaking your heart when I left all those years ago, but then I realised that maybe there was so much going on in your life my departure hasn’t been tearing you up after all.

That’s kind of humbling, with hindsight.

I’ve tried to write this blog post so many times, tried to reach out to you a thousand times, Blogosphere, but you never seemed to be there when I tried to connect. I’ve wanted to tell you about the things I’ve been up to, about life here in Alberta, about the writing and the new career, about my family and about listening to far too much Adele to be considered healthy.

I’ve been thinking about the past too, about what it was like back in those days when we were young and free and things like Instagram and Snapchat and Twitter were little-known quantities that only hipsters hung out on. I’d almost forgotten what it felt like when the world was at our feet; when I was in the know about social media platforms before I moved a million miles away to the other side of the world.

Ugh, I’m sorry. It’s so like me to talk about myself. How are you, blogosphere? I hear that you’re doing well for yourself, that you’ve adapted and changed and done all these cool crazy things in the years I’ve been gone. No, no that’s no a criticism! It’s amazing that you’ve diversified and multiplied and grown beyond the boundaries that anyone expected. I’ve just got so much to learn.

Anyway, I better go, it’s no secret we’re both running out of time right now, and I’m sure you’re super busy like me. I’d like to meet up again, maybe talk about cool new things rather than running over the past. Unless you want to. Maybe we can go over things after all. If you like. Maybe soon?


Yeah, I’d like that too, Blogosphere.

Until next time,

Gem x
