A hiatus

For a long time now I have considered completely deleting this blog. I am growing further away from it as I delve deeper into my clinical studies. And while writing to this imaginary audience has often brought me joy, I just can’t look at this blog and not be reminded of who I was and who I wanted to be.

I am at a crossroads between choosing medicine and literature, and its become clear that I was always choosing medicine first. I am at the beginning of 20s and I am being thoroughly fucked by life and its troubles. This blog helped when it did. But I feel it’s a chapter I must leave behind now, a chapter I will pick up and continue writing sometime in the future when that literary fire that burned inside of me seven years ago is ignited again.

Maybe I will write again. I hope I do. I hope I get to make my younger self proud and publish all those stories, my stories.

Thank you for reading and listening to me. This isn’t goodbye forever. It is only goodbye for now.
