Default Twelve years today

I arrived on this day in 1999. Planning to avoid the millenium in the Northern hemisphere and fearing the end of the world.

Now 12 years later I am still alive and the world is still turning.
I'm not doing a big update but it has been good really.
Took a good couple of years to feel OK. Having a baby helped me meet people and my life improved at that point as I was miserable for the most part before but too ashamed to say anything.

I did my degree here and that helped my confidence hugely and I started to feel like myself again.

Now I have a great set of friends and I feel at home. I've finally found people that I can have a really good laugh.

I have had so many opportunities here. Since arriving I have learnt to drive, had a baby, got a degree, done post grad study, got fit, grown dreads, bought a house and finally found out who I am in this universe.

I feel more accepted here than I ever did at home but that of course may be my age. It has been a good process. Not without it's many downs and losses and I miss friends and family so much. But it has been good for me and my little whanau to be here.
