Birthday Musings

Today is my 28th birthday and I thought it was a good opportunity to dust off this blog.

I remember on my last birthday I was exploring Amsterdam with my partner with a fairly uncertain year ahead of me. I was unemployed and faced a job search, likely followed by a housing search when I returned home. My girlfriend shared the housing problem, and would also need to find work once she finished up her thesis later that year.

Now, on my 28th birthday I find myself in a completely different position. I am living at my parents place and soon will face a job search, followed by a housing search, but this time in a new and exciting locale! On the 1st of February I move to Sweden to be with my fiancée, who starts her new job there in a little over a week.

I can't say I am looking forward to my new job and home search, but it does set us up for a fairly different year. It will be interesting adapting to a new culture, learning a new language and living in a place where it snows; snow without travel just seems weird.

I also intend to start updating this blog again more regularly. While most posts will be about games, because I do play a lot of games, I will also probably include some slice of life posts too.

Here is hoping that this trip around the sun is as good as the last one.


  1. All the best in your new adventure Andrew, we'll miss you here !

  2. Good luck in Sweden! Look forward to seeing your posts about life there.

  3. "It's your party and you can blog if you want to!", eh? Good to see Ran's Lists return. Good luck to both of you! :D
