10th Blog Birthday and Life Update

Hi everyone. I am sitting here writing this post now, listening to the fireworks going off in the distance, feeling quite sad and disappointed.  Today is once again my Blog Birthday and it is actually the tenth year!  I always thought years ago, that if I ever managed to keep my blog going for this length of time, I would do such a great post and a big giveaway to celebrate having my blog for 10 years!  But sadly, I haven't really been able to keep my blog going, not like I used to, because the last few years I have barely been posting.  And I do wonder, does anyone even read blogs anymore?!

I used to love writing my posts so much, I put so much effort into each and every one.  I loved taking and editing the photos and would spend hours on it, and for many years I posted every single week.  But life changed, things got difficult and hard and even though I really wanted to keep it going, it just never did.  Like I wrote a while back, I will try not to ever actually close the site or delete my blog, so it will still be here for anyone to read, including myself and I will post some times, just because I do love to write and hope that someone out there might still take the time to read it.

I hope to be able to write some more positive posts but at the moment, my depression has taken a big nosedive and I'm not doing too good.  I'm not happy at all with my life and I feel like I'm drowning with the grief of losing my Dad a year ago.

On the plus side, and two of the only things that have really been a positive in my life is that one, I have been learning a language.  Which is something I didn't even think I was capable of as I was chronically terrible at learning French at school.  I even got a U in a French test!!  But thankfully, I do seem to be learning well with my new chosen language, which I've been learning for nearly a year now.  And what is the language you may ask!  I am learning Finnish :-)  It is quite complex but a beautiful language.  I've also been learning a lot about Finland and the Finnish culture.  Maybe I'll do a post about it one day, if anyone is interested.

The second interest that has kept me sane this past 7-8 months, is my new music account, called and it is on both Instagram and Tiktok.  After I re-found all my favourite music and favourite bands near the beginning of last year.  I have mentioned this in more detail in my last post, which you can read here, Making Changes.
I love my little place on the internet, whether it's posting on my blog or spending time making lyric videos and posting on my music accounts.  And I want to keep doing these things, because it gives me pleasure and gives me something nice to focus on, as well as great happiness when I know it makes others smile too.

If you are one of my original followers, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking with me, and if you're new here and managed to read this far (I am known for writing loooong posts), then again, thank you.

Until Next Time, whenever that may be.  Stay Cool and Be Yourself
