New Look, Hopefully Better Content

I’m bringing the blog back! For those of you who don’t know, I’m leaving for a year abroad in Paris today and I thought this was as good a time as any to revamp the blog. Those of you who are long-time readers might notice that the almost 500 previous posts are no longer visible, which was done purposefully. A lot of the opinions I shared there I no longer have, and a lot of the things I wrote were pretty mundane (much like I imagine this will end up being, but who knows?), so I decide I’d make them private and start over on a clean slate.

Because of this starting over (but still slight redesign), K suggested I make a joke based on all of the food packages that say things like “New Look, Same Great Taste”, and I readily took the opportunity. I don’t know how often I’ll post– definitely once a week at a minimum because I don’t want to not post at all, but I also do’t want to force myself to write so frequently that you end up getting a blow-by-blow that was all too common during my senior and gap years.

At the moment I’m waiting at my gate in the US to board a flight to Iceland (yeah I’m basically a globetrotter) to board yet another flight to Paris. All told I should be in France in about 12 hours and if that isn’t insane I don’t know what is. I really hate flying so I’m not looking forward to having to ascend and descend twice while simultaneously interrupting my already screwed up timezones, but if I’m going to be jet lagged, might as well do it to the fullest extent!

  1. I have butterflies in my stomach for you. It’s a brave thing that you’re doing. Very exciting! We’ll miss you terribly but we can’t wait to hear about all your adventures. Bon voyage!!!!

  2. I hope your trip went smoothly and perhaps you had a little time to get acquainted with Iceland. Jamie thinks it is a country more people should visit, and says the northern lights are spectacular. (You probably had only enough time to change planes.) By now you are in your new “abode”, rested and ready for what will be a truly memorable year. It will be great to read your blogs to see what you are doing. I certainly never got all your others – maybe 10 to 15 of them. ????? Stay safe and enjoy this experience. I love you lots.

  3. Mairead, I screwed up and didn’t get a call into you…bummed. I’m SOOOOO glad you’re blogging. I’ve really enjoyed reading your posts (from before) and now with the “New Look”, it’ll have a “Formidable French Flair!” Oo la la! Can’t wait! I’ll be thinking of you often and once you tell us about all the amazing things you do, I’ll be VERY jealous. ENJOY!
