Welcome to my new “Lost and Found” series. In an effort to be more mindful of myself, the space around me, and the world at large, I want to share some tidbits of note for me that were either lost or found. Simple, right? Let’s get to it
Found: My Blogging Mojo
Blogging is hard. I don’t mean the thing itself really, but I mean keeping up with it. I have so many ideas of what I want to write, but sometimes I just run out of energy. During the final part of my studies, I even managed to lose interest in making time for blogging all together. I wasn’t sure if I would ever fully come back to the space, or just pump out a post every once in a while when I felt inspired to do so.
As of right now, I’m feeling more excited about this space than I have since I arrived in Germany. I sure hope I can keep the ball rolling, because it’s doing wonders for my motivation and emotional energy.
We had quite a bit of snow in Munich this winter. Thankfully, the warm weather lately has pretty much melted away all of the snow. I’m hopeful that this means spring will come soon and the bitterly cold weather will stay away. Looking at the chilly gales and rain outside, I’m not so sure when we will get properly warm weather, but at least it’s above freezing.
What I have seen still hanging out are piles of dirty snow next to the parking garages of the shopping mall. I’m still waiting for those to finally melt.
Found: Snow Drops
I have seen the first snow drops of the year! If you don’t know what they are, they’re the small white flowers that pop up as winter transitions into spring, sometimes coming straight up through late snow and blooming before trees even start to wake up after winter. I unfortunately don’t have a photo because the lighting was so bad, but it’s a pleasure to see these little guys in Munich after having watched for them in Virginia as well.
That’s all for now. I hope to be back in this space more often going forwards.
