It’s been one whole year since I started Tales of Casstastrophe and look how far we’ve come! If you’re here anticipating styled photos of giant golden balloon numbers or letters, please kindly close your eyes and imagine them for a moment so you’re not disappointed and then open your eyes and continue reading.
First and foremost, let’s review some of the adventures we’ve been on since we got to know each other last July:
- studied a little literature at the University of Cambridge for a summer
- undergraduated from college
- turned 23 years young
- worked as a gardener in Ireland for 6 weeks
- moved to North Carolina
- voyaged to: Anglesey Abbey, the Kancamagus Highway, Inish Beg, Skibbereen & Baltimore, and New Orleans
- learned a combined total of 64 books (in 23,000+ pages) – and counting!
Secondly, I’ve made a few updates around the site. Nothing too fancy but allow me to direct you to the new home page. This Is Me and Casstegories have also gotten a little sprucing. Have no fear, navigation is still largely the same and I want to make sure that my past posts remain unaffected so if you see anything looking funky please let me know!
And finally, thank you to everyone who has come along on this whirlwind of a year with me! I appreciate it more than you know that anyone out there, even one single person, cares to read my thoughts and prose. Writing is fun for me; it’s a hobby, it’s a habit, and it’s a love. While I’m thankful to have these musings recorded somewhere for myself in the future, I’m even more thankful to think that someone out there might actually get something from what I write. If that someone is you – please write back.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Here’s to many more Tales of Casstastrophe!
