As you can obviously tell from the title, today the Alternative Realities turn one! This time last year a very nervous me wrote the first post. Who would have thought that this time next year, I would be sitting at the same exact place brainstorming about the way I should celebrate the anniversary! In a year I’ve managed to write 30 blog posts, talking about films, music, travels and my random thoughts!
Even though it might not seem like a lot, to me it’s kind of a big deal for a couple of reasons. First of all, it’s the first time I’m THAT comitted to writing. This isn’t actually the first time I’ve written in my life. I destinctively remember writing a “novel” inspired by the adventures of Huckleberry Fin when I was around 10. Of course, I never got around to finishing it. Fast forward a few years later, when I experimented with a short story that got lost somewhere between a usb stick and a dead laptop. And then, after a few years off writing the Alternative Realities were born. Secondly, this whole blog thing that I have going on has really boosted my creativity. When you’re in university trying to keep up with school work and maintain a social life at the same time can really drain your creative juices. This blog has been my remedy when I was stuck in a rut and a great platform of sharing. Last but not least, this year of blogging was one of the fullest years of my life so far. I feel like I’ve grown and I’ve done things that I never imagined I would. From taking up photography to living abroad, it was a whirlwind of a year that had it all.
So what’s next?
Starting September, I’d really love to change things up here and start writing on a weekly basis (even twice a week, if I get my extreme time management skills back on!). You can expect to see more travel posts, more photos and maybe the odd post about politics here and there. And of course Films worth watching! Till then, I don’t know how often I will be writing here due to my need for a small pause and a lot of exams due in September. I can assure you though, that there is nothing more than great content coming your way as soon as possible! I leave you with the hope that you enjoyed reading my blog this past year as much as I enjoy writing it. I couldn’t help but add this little piece of music (that everyone who knows me relatively well definitely recognises!) in order to get my dorky online celebration going.
Thank you for your feedback, your kind words and your support.
Here’s to another great year of blogging and lots of adventures!
Till next time,
