The Dramatic Llama blog is officially a year old and this is post number 50! Clearly time flies whether you’re having fun or not! I thought this was the perfect opportunity to have a bit of an upgrade too if you hadn’t noticed, we’re now a .com! I got way too excited about that but I am a nerd after all. I have also thrown millennial pink everywhere, this was definitely a good move and can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner. If you check out the menu option on the top right you can also now click on specific posts to read them, instead of having to scroll through previous ones to find them. So please let me know what you think of the new look and features, as always feedback is greatly appreciated.
I also thought this would be a good opportunity to reflect on where it all started, if you can remember that far back. The original thought process for all of this was to try to get me through Vet School Year 2 MkII, as well as dealing with everything else life was throwing at me. It’s been far from a smooth ride, at times I’ve felt like a wheel has come off, or my sister was driving and I was looking for the non existent brake pedal in the passenger footwell. But as most of you know, I passed and we’re already half way through week one of third year. Summer feels like it was just a weekend break! It’s quite nice to be learning fresh new things after the last 12 months, but I’m already missing home terribly and wishing it was still harvest time.
So it succeeded! Yay! *Happy dance* But what I didn’t expect when I started, was everything else that came with it. It has become so much more than getting me through a repeat year. Which if anyone has been there will know is awful. It’s been a creative outlet, one of the best therapists I’ve ever had (I’ve seen a few), I’ve shared things that I thought would haunt me alone forever and it has brought me closer to people. Something I didn’t even consider when I started it. So a massive thank you to everyone that has taken the time to read my posts, shared their own stories with me, been supportive or just shown an interest. It’s such a nice feeling when someone tells you that they tried something new after reading about your experience of it. Or another blogger from around the World reads your post. This was never about becoming a blogger and having followers, it was an attempt to keep me afloat in that little boat I told you I was sinking in with all those suitcases. There have been many storms, but I’m not shipwrecked yet (If you think that was ridiculously soppy, I wasn’t even trying!). So it looks like you’re stuck with me now for even longer!
