Five years ago today I hit publish on my very first blog post. Five years is a long time to still be doing any one thing, and in fact, this blog has probably been the one constant in my life over this half decade. So, I just wanted to thank you, dear readers, for sticking around, and for reading and leaving comments through two countries, four cities, six apartments, and four sets of roommates. Through two Master's programs and countless part-time jobs. Though better and worse, sickness and health, poorer and yes, even poorer. Through the highs of Doritos and the inevitable lows of rejection. Not to mention so many first dates that I had to stop counting a long time ago.
Seriously, I don't think I would be half as ok as I am today without this blog as a steam valve, a forum, and a sounding board. So, with that in mind, what can I do for you today, dear readers? Do you have burning questions you'd like to ask me, topics you'd like me to write about, loose ends fraying in the wind you'd love to see tied up? Do you double dog dare me to quit my job and start a school for French-speaking goats? Well don't tempt me, 'cause I just might. So will it be truth? Dare? I am, as they say, à vous.
