Hello there! As you’ve already guessed, my name is Sandy. After starting and deleting so many other blogs, I’m really going to try and stick to this one. Why? Well, I’d like to be able to look back and remember moments from my life.
I guess, for me, things really began in the middle of 2011. I became really fed up with my life — work, long-term relationship, friends and family — so impulsively decided I would fly halfway across the world on my own to London. So off I went with nothing but a suitcase and a dream to make a fresh start in a city where no-one knew my name. People told me I was brave, but I secretly knew I was just mental.
It was hard. I was really unprepared for it, but in the end I managed to build a whole new life for myself. I had such an amazing experience! It’s crazy to think how much I’ve learned and how much I’ve changed during that time. I really love London and everything it had to offer, which is why it was so hard to accept that I had to leave.
Not being able to marry an Englishman (just kidding!), I came back to Sydney around mid-2013. It took a while for me to re-adjust and for people to get used to the “different me”, but I feel like I’m at a really good place right now. Much better than I was before.
London is a magical city and I will always remember it fondly, but I’m back here in Sydney now. It’s a new year, I’m starting a new job and I will make new memories (good, bad and awful) in my hometown that I will keep here in my online journal.
I’d love to hear from you about why you’ve started a blog (whether it was recently or a long time ago). Please feel free to leave a comment. And thanks for stopping by.
