there are a lot of things (both person- and object-wise) that I need to leave behind. I'm really nervous about it because I've only ever lived in one city my entire life and I don't really know anyone in Toronto. But hey, it'll be an adventure, right? And maybe it'll be good for me to break outside my comfort zone a bit, discover myself or whatever. But that doesn't mean I'm not terrified.
Edmonton Book Bloggers. The year that I've known them has been really great as I've never before had really bookish friends - people you can chat with about books for hours on end and they never tell you to shut it. Those are my kind of people! I will miss them greatly. On the bright side, moving to Ontario will afford me the opportunity to meet new book bloggers from the Ontario Blog Squad. I'm really excited to hopefully meet Ontario bloggers I have been chatting to online for years - Zahida, Christa, Andrea, Avery, Liz. Any other Ontario bloggers? Give me a shout!

Now, this is where things get tricky for the blog. I don't know exactly what to expect from grad school, but I do know that I will somehow have to balance attending classes, studying for classes, researching my thesis, writing my thesis, teaching classes, marking papers, and somehow make time to read and blog in all that. So. Yeah. Did I mention how terrified I am??
My goal is to maintain at least two blog posts a week and I'm really hoping that's not overly optimistic, but I really can't say. All I can say for sure is that this is NOT the end of blogging for me. I still love it a lot and I really can't even imagine my life without it. (Same goes for reading, obviously). I'll still be around, even if it might mean blogging and commenting less, unfortunately. But you can always find me on one of the various social networking sites I take part in (see sidebar) - hit me up anytime!
