Yep, the title of this post just about sums it up. While I’ve loved dedicating my time to this little corner of the internet for almost two years now (wow! didn’t even realize it had been that long), I’ve come to realize that the purpose for this blog – documenting my world wide travels – no longer exists. While I seriously doubt my nomadic lifestyle has ended completely, Toronto has my heart for now. With that said, blogging about my day-to-day life just doesn’t get me fired up like blogging about wandering through Central America/ Europe/ Canada/ The U.S/ and Africa did. Thus, I have decided to stop blogging…
…whether the stop is temporary or permanent I’m not sure. If it’s temporary, you guys will definitely know about it because I’ll be back in full force ;). In the meantime, there’s a lot of good in my life that I’ll be focusing on, such as:
- Donating $700 to Ethiopia Health Aid. Thank you to everyone who donated. I was just informed that this money will be used toward buying new equipment for the school’s chemistry lab.
- FINALLY running my first marathon. I’ve signed up for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon – again. While I had signed up for this marathon last year, I was unable to run it due to my move to Ethiopia. Unless a different continent calls my name, I’ll be there in 2014.
- Following my gut and pursuing entrepreneurship. I recently jumped ship and left the corporate world in pursuit of my goal of self-employment. Long story short, I decided why not now?! and did it. That’s another reason why Culturecopia is being put on hold – I am focusing on my new blog, which offers content related to my business interests.
- Waiting on an acceptance letter (fingers crossed!) for a Master’s program at the University of Toronto.
With all that being said, I’d like to thank everyone for reading my blog all these years. It was truly a blast to write about my travels while getting to “know” so many of my readers. If life leads me back abroad (and chances are it will), I’ll be back ;).
P.S. I’m still active on Twitter & Instagram (emmaharris121) if you care to follow!
