Six years ago I decided to start a blog. And six years later, here I am! Thanks for sticking by - this little blog has gone through the finishing of a thesis, an engagement, a marriage, a new job, a change of country and now another new job. The adventure begins, again!

Today is my last day at my job. I've resigned and taken a new and exciting role in a start-up and I feel energized, excited and happy. But I am also so sad to be leaving such wonderful people. If I find people this wonderful elsewhere, then I know I'm making the right decision. So I'm jumping off the ledge - wish me luck!

I'm a bit late to the party on this one, but I just saw The Grand Budapest Hotel and it really is a marvel. So beautifully composed - the attention to detail is awe-inspiring. And it's laugh out loud funny, too.

Its vanished trees, the trees that had made way for Gatsby’s house, had once pandered in whispers to the last and greatest of all human dreams; for a transitory enchanted moment man must have held his breath in the presence of this continent, compelled into an aesthetic contemplation he neither understood nor desired, face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate to his capacity for wonder.
—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
