Well, it’s been a while since we last spoke. What happened was, sometime after I came back to college and the true stress of final year set in I decided I wouldn’t write any more. Firstly, I thought, my life was about to get pretty boring and un-noteworthy. Secondly, I assumed that I’d have zero time on my hands with which to write updates on my supposedly boring days. All in all, I felt it was time to pack in The Peapod and Pearl. In actual fact, whilst I was (almost) right about the second assumption (I have close to zero time to write anything but essays), I was wrong about the first. Your life is as boring or as exciting as you make it. And mine is still pretty fun, thankfully.
So I’d like to introduce you all to my new friend. It’s a little more grown-up than The Peapod. For one thing it’s now a ‘dot com’ which is exciting. The pictures will likely be a little better because I’ve learnt basic photography now (and am soon to be a Film addict too, once the new arrival comes in the post!), and things will get a little more regular around here. If you used to follow The Peapod and have thought to yourself “Hey, where’s the next update?”, please hit the Follow button on here and keep an eye out for the latest happenings.
For anyone who hasn’t been here before, it’s nice to meet you. I’m Kiera. I’m an Irish girl from the deep south who moved to Dublin to study. I live with my little brother in a big but very draughty apartment in a seaside town and things I like most include icecream, art, woollen garments, the sun and exploring. And who are you? I hope you like it here and want to come again.
Keep an eye out for the first real post in the next couple of days. “The High Life” is gonna be all about my time in the Austrian Alps last week (which I’m still recovering from…).
