Here we are, four years later: the deadline of my Ph.D. The thesis is written and should be ready for submission by the end of the week. The end of an era.
The blog is called “at the threshold of a new life”, and this life is not new anymore. I am not an ola hadasha (a new emigrant) anymore, there are fewer and fewer things that surprise me (even getting “arrested” for smuggling food inside the university). So I have less to write about which explains – beside being busy writing other things – the slower pace of publication. This is why I think time has come to say good bye. Blogs are so 2010 anyway.
It was a lot of fun sharing with you my experiences and for sure it helped me going through rough times. So thank you to my faithful readers, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
Although there were some times of doubts, there is not a single day I regret boarding this plane with my overweight luggage four years ago. I have grown and learned about life in ways that I could not imagine. I have met amazing people, Love, and made a home.
I can’t conclude this blog without looking back at all the shtuyot I wrote. So here is a list of my favorite posts, in no particular order:
- Post 50.
- Hebrew for dummies
- Random thought process of an average Ph.D. student
- 20 little things that make me happy
- 30 signs you’ve been in Israel for too long
- 30 signs you’ve lived in Beer Sheva for too long
You can tell me in the comments which one was your favorite (not necessarily from this list).
And now, I am ready for new adventures.
I wish you all an amazing journey. Kisses! Bisous! Nechikot! XOXO
P.S.: In case you were wondering, I now only own 16 pairs of shoes and barely wear half of them because the other have heels…
