Soooooo, it’s been a while hasn’t it?
I’ve been off and on without any regularity since last year (thanks to a broken computer keyboard), then went to the US for the summer (where I bought a new computer), and yet I haven’t posted anything..!
Where have I been?
Well, to put it simply…I’ve been in my own head. I don’t want to be a Debbie-Downer out here, but my struggle since last year has been real. I think this ennui is something that every foreigner goes through (so says my husband), but I can’t seem to shake it! I just don’t want to do anything anymore. I don’t enjoy cooking like I did (hence the lack of recipe posts), I can’t be bothered to take pictures of my day (hence the lack of instagram posts), I don’t care enough to pick up art products or draw a picture…let alone write on my old blog.
There are so many things I could spill right now, but I have a feeling this space isn’t as anonymous as it once was- and some things are best left private while they are still in motion.
All I can say is, living in Turkey is hard guys. Way harder than I anticipated. I feel so silly for claiming that happiness is a choice, as I did when I first got here (and was generally happy). When you are stuck in a mire with no feeling of moving forward, it can be hard to dig out a pebble of happiness.
Hopefully I will find more to write about soon. If anyone can drop some questions/suggestions below to help me find a topic, that’d be great. If I have any following left…!
