hello again, friends!

I cannot believe i’m writing this. It’s nearly midnight and… the year is 2023. It is March of 2023. It has been over two years since my last blog post. So much has changed, both in the world and in my life, but I’ve spent the past two years wondering if anyone sometimes spared a moment to think about me and my disappearing act (which was predictable, given my sporadic posting for months before) and debating whether the mortification would be worth posting a final goodbye… Two years late.

I have no idea if anyone will read this, or whether everyone who used to frequent this blog (over 500 people cared about what my middle school self had to say, which still baffles me) has moved on just like I did. I’m writing this mostly for closure – so that through the other 11 PMs and 2 AMs I spend deploring the cruel, endless passage of time I have this one chapter of my past settled.

I started this blog in October of 2018. That may not be a long time to someone older, but to me it grew and evolved as I did, and its stagnancy after I abandoned it just feels like a time capsule into my past. I will still remember my blogging days fondly, of course, and who knows? Maybe I’ll post something here again. But I wanted something tangible to prove my brief existence here on this corner of the Internet and to show that I’ve grown up, maybe, but I’m still the same little girl who used to jabber on about colorful scarves and brand-new books.

I still read. I can’t imagine a world where I don’t read. If you’d like to stay in touch with me and see what I read, send me a friend request on Goodreads. I still have my blog linked on there, and I just never wanted to take it off.

(As you might be able to tell, I become attached rather easily – and once I attach, it’s near-impossible to make me let go. Evidence: this post, even if it’s two years late.)

The past few years have changed me a lot. I can’t believe how young I was when I had this blog (middle school!) and how young I still am – but it makes me even more excited for the rest of my life. I can’t wait to make more memories and meet amazing people and think about them years in the future, wondering if they ever think about me too.

I hope you’re all doing well. If you’re an old friend (or a new one!), I’d love to hear from you, chat with you – if you just want to drop a little ❤ that would still warm my heart. Here’s a sweet post from one of my favorite social media accounts that I wish for all of you this spring, this year, and this lifetime. (If you happen to spot me in the comment section and feel like connecting through my account, well… I would be delighted.)

It’s past midnight now. Half an hour has passed without me noticing, and isn’t that just what life is? Time ticking by, people loved and people lost, a life precious beyond measure.

I love you all. And for perhaps the last time:
