Part of the reason I’ve been absent from this blog is that, when I do have time for blogging, I’ve been focusing my energy on a new blog for the past few days. I’ve started a blog called “crossing the ocean” about going to Germany. Of course, because I’m not there yet, it’s mostly my thoughts about the decision and some pictures I’ve found online of Bremen and such things, but it’s to document my journey and the journey starts when the decision is made. Of course, it’ll be more interesting in August when I’m actually in Germany! Still, I think about it so much that I’ve been managing to post quite a bit, so check it out.
