If I were to tell you what I’m doing right now, you’d think I was still in France. UPDATE: I’m not. via I’m Looking Forward to Looking Forward — The Feminist Goes To France Advertisements
Well, would ya look at that. Check your calendar there, and notice something. Look at that date. Yep, right there. 31st December 2016. The last day of the year.
2016. You’ve been a hell of a year. I don’t think I’m quite ready to look back on all that you’ve brought and simultaneously destroyed for us, but I think we can all say that this year is like no other. It brought out the worst in many, but, like every cloud, there is a silver lining (if you squint really carefully). While this year may have been the year America elected a man that requires too many adjectives for a solid English sentence, the reaction to this world-changing event has been both disheartening and encouraging.
Let’s bypass the fact that this is my first blog post in months and get straight to it, shall we?
I’m sitting here on my bed in France with one window open on my laptop watching Crazy, Stupid, Love on Netflix, and the other one open writing this blog post. I, again, had not much to do tonight so I thought a movie might be a nice change from rewatching old Gilmore Girls episodes.

One Direction said it best when they sang, in all their glorious auto-tuned ways, “I won’t let these little thing slip out of my mouth”. However for me, the little things that I’m talking about, seem a little bit bigger and a lot further away.
Bonjour! C’est moi. FINALLY. Writing this from my unexpectedly comfy bed as a means to pass the time and ease my guilt due to my neglect of the blogosphere. Did you know that everything, apart from some musuems and restaurants, are closed on a Sunday in France? Well, you do now. So here I am.
Hello, hello, hello people of WordPress and beyond. Long time no type. How y’all doin’? (I heard it. I won’t say it again. Promise). It has been an embarrassingly long time since I’ve blogged. Summer was supposed to be the time where my blog takes off, instead it’s been more stagnant than ever. I feel very guilty about neglecting my little space of internet.

Classic Clodagh. Make big changes to your blog, write a whole post about all these ideas and plans you have for it, and then disappear. Continue reading “Bear With”
Today was my last exam- finally! Not that I really had that many … I only had four and they were spaced out quite nicely but still … when you’re lazy like me, exam season kills ya. While I’m finished sweating trying to write four pages in an hour and holding in my pee and sneezes in a drafty hall, I still have one more essay to write. But instead, I’ve spent the last little while on here. Introducing … My new and improved blog! Continue reading “A New Look, A New Direction”
One year ago today, I was sitting at my desk when I took the plunge and typed WordPress.com into the search bar. One year ago today, I suddenly decided what I wanted to do, and I clicked “create blog”. One year ago today, I started to share my thoughts and opinions with the world.

As I mentioned in my previous post, time is a-ticking down to my year abroad. But before I start packing (which I’ll probably do the night before while being highly emotional and belting out “The Fields of Athenry”), I kind of need to … make a decision.
