Just a message :)

I have missed by 2 weeks the anniversary of this dear (to me) blog! It was 2 years ago that I had started posting. I don’t believe in such celebrations, yet here I am and it’s a good excuse to recap things a bit.

It started out of my obsession for ranking, for Oscar and due to my desire of participating in Stinkylulu’s Supporting Actress Smackdown. I had no job at the time, and in many ways this blog helped solving this issue. It’s because here I got to practice my English (I still get to, obviously) and that does help keeping things fresh in mind.

It is great coming back to the blogs, especially when feeling a bit depressed, or sad, it does often separate me from real life stuff.

When I first started, there weren’t this many Oscar ranking obsessed people out here. :) I knew about Stinkylulu’s Supporting Actress passion and Nick (Nick’s Flick Picks) was doing Best Actress, but I discovered his blog later on. Now, everywhere you turn people are doing Oscar categories :) , some with incredible speed, as if it’s some kind of a race. I move slower, I did so especially in my first year (due to all personal stuff) and I really enjoy digesting the categories.

Stinkylulu was a big influence, obviously, and I am forever grateful. Step by step, I started doing this just a bit differently and I’m happy with the way the blog looks right now. I’ve obviously met interesting people here, yet considering “geography is a bitch” (my line), all friendships will probably remain virtual at most.

I don't like my face in this photo, but not a lot of them to choose from :)

I’ve just arrived in Athens for 1 week with lots of work (some might remember I’ve lived here for 4 1/2 months) and it feels strange coming back; it might take some time away from my blogging or maybe not. I have no idea.

So: a bit of patience and thank you very much for reading. May we all enjoy many wonderful Oscar years from now on.

Congratulatiopns on passing two years.

You're always a great read and I look forward to stopping by over the years to come.

I like your face too (but strangely your comment made me think of Return to Oz where Mombi literally gets to choose her face).

I probably meant to say face expression :)) the thing is I didn't have my contact lenses on, so I was a bit confused.

thank you.

Your blog is one of my inspirations in making my own blog.
