Dearest blog,

I'm sorry I've given up on you. I think the two years we had together were nice. I did my best to pay attention to you. I'm sorry I was distracted by Europe, my job and reality. I don't know how to break this to you, break-ups are so hard, oh well i guess that did the job...

We are going to have to take an official break, I'm not breaking up with the blogging world officially, but this URL is going to have to go. I'm still hungry, I always will be, who isn't?  But I don't think I'm Hungary. I will have to find a new pun... A German pun! My Germanplatz is fantatische so it shouldstraßer not be difficultdorf to find one schnell. Does that sound schön to you?

I'm leaning towards something about donuts... seeing as I will be a Berliner.

Right now now I need to focus on phoning German Embassies, moving an office space to Germany, finding an apartment in Berlin, going home for Christmas, packing my bags, saying goodbye to Budapest, planning my post September 2012 life... There is so much more I could bring up, but why dear blog? The result will still be the same.

I bet you already saw the end coming, I've neglected you so much lately, did you know that I went to Denmark again? Don't worry, I won't be out of your life forever, I'll keep you online in the hopes of someone stumbling upon it and sending me a nice email about how they read it.

I've prepared a picture montage to remember this relationship... I hope it isn't too painful.

All the best "This Girl is Hungary",

This girl.

-Also working... Thankfully this picture doesn't capture fear of giant people.

    Thank you for sharing with us these amazing pictures... I wish you and the blog can have a flashback soon.
    Until then, good luck in your new journey!

  2. Whatever, Piebiak. I tried that dress on in its entirety, not just the hood - that baby is mine!
