Hello there & Welcome to Jumagination…
First of all, thanks for finding your way to my blog. My name’s Julia (Ju), I’m 26 and currently residing in Germany. That might change in February though.
Last year I started a dogblog. I was very excited, put lots of effort in and was totally into it – for 2 weeks. Then “stuff” happened, I got busy and things kinda fell apart. I was still battling depression (and being BPD doesn’t help!) and I was looking at a 6 week stay in a clinic. Now, most people say would say: “Whoa, that’s a long time!” but I did a 14 week stay the year before so 6 was a serious improvement. It was a really good decision though because I’ve been very stable for the past year, I even started to work again every now and then… Life just took a turn to the better – still is. And I got heaps to look forward to!
My point is, last year I just wasn’t ready to commit myself to something permanent like running a blog. I found out that it requires dedication, time, effort and love to do this. I didn’t have that. Now 18 months later I’m ready.
I applied for a 1 year course at Massey University in New Zealand, doing a Diploma in communication & PR starting in February 2017. Now, it’s not set in stone yet but pretty damn close. I am going to be a student, I’m going to put my life together and pursue my own personal happiness (yes, it sounds very cheesy but I love cheese, I’m like the personified cheeseness).
I cannot wait to start living again, to tell people about my new adventures in life but also to give something back to the world. Whether it’s a funny anecdote to make one of you smile, whether it’s a recipe that tickles your pickle or whether you pee yourself because of my embarrassing grammar mistakes.
Tons of love for you out there and thanks for reading until the very end 🙂
