Hi! I’ve been writing this blog for a year and a half: a little longer than I’ve been living abroad, and while it’s been a primary means of keeping others aware of my ever fluctuating life, it has probably seemed like I’m usually holding something back, and, for much of the time, I am. There are three reasons: Firstly, I don’t think others care so much about what I feel. Secondly, I keep the inside stuff inside or put it first in my diary, then use it for creative pieces. Thirdly, since the blog is online, I don’t want to dig too deep and expose all these feelings for those who I don’t know.
