My absence


Hi everyone! Long time no see. I've been absent from the blogging world for some time. I don't owe anyone an explanation, but I would like to share my reasons with you anyway.

Last December my father passed away. I don't want to go into much detail but I will say that he was a healthy man, so it came as a huge shock to my family as well as everyone who knew him.

I was at a complete loss blogging wise/uni wise for quite some time. Every time I attempted to write anything, it just felt completely meaningless. 

That was until very recently. One of my favourite youtubers, Becky Sheeran, tragically experienced a very similar loss to my own. Instead of quitting or giving up, she continued to make videos, and I can see that it must be very helpful and therapeutic for her to remain busy, doing the things she has always loved to do.

My dad was my little blog's biggest fan, so I've decided to carry it on for both myself and for him.

I am days away from the end of my second year as an English student, so expect regular blogging to resume from now on!
