Deeper Connection


While studying for my exams, it took every ounce of strength to NOT write a blog post. I was so inspired with different ideas to share with you. Now that I’m free, I have “writers block.” Really, brain? Seriously? Is this how you are going to be?

Nevertheless, I am powering through, inspired by conversations I had yesterday.

♥ Thank you!

2 days ago the Freshly Pressed fairy had visited me over night, blessing me with my third Freshly Pressed blog post in 5 months. 3 in 5 months. I know. How does that even happen?

As aforementioned, my prior 2 FP’ed posts were photography posts, and though I was nothing short of grateful – it was my personal mission to be freshly pressed for my writing. This is really an honor.

I am overwhelmed with the stats over the last few days, with over 21,000 hits (rounded down, and still counting…) in just two days.

I want to just take a moment to thank everybody who shared my blog on twitter, facebook, wordpress, and stumbleupon – I trust that it will return to you multiplied- as all good things in life do, when you share it.

To everybody who *liked* and commented on my post, thank you for contributing to the expanding sense of positivity and community here.

To everybody who subscribed to my blog – thank you for supporting a hobby that genuinely brings me a lot of joy. I hope to give you something to make you stick around!

To everybody who wrote me some weird and wonderful e-mails, with the most lovely compliments about my blog, many interesting questions and conversations starters – I really appreciate it, read every single one, and I will try my very hardest to get back to all of you.

And to all my fellow nerds. I salute you. I didn’t realize there were so many of us out there.

Man, I could write a killer Oscar speech, don’t cha think?

Right now I am in Vancouver airport returning to Ireland for my second year of medical school. I love free wi-fi (what’s up with the lack of free wi-fi in europe?) and airport lay-over times are great free pockets in time to create some pretty spectacular blog posts. But I will refrain. I want to instead focus this blog post on my gratitude. And also because I’m kind of hungry and need to start hunting for food 😛 With all my new subscribers, this is kind of like beginning a new relationship together. You know, you don’t want to give away too much too soon. You don’t want to overwhelm anybody on a first date. But the 3rd and 4th date? That’s when you can let all your crazy hang out! I’m just playing with you guys.

Thank you. ♥
