Where Have I Been?

All of a sudden I just disappeared, and so did my blog, for a little bit more than a year. I did not disappear off the face of the earth and I was not hiding in a cave away from the world. Nor did I buy myself a one-way ticket around the world. I was simply in an office of a law firm completing my year of articles so I could become my own version of Elle Woods from Legally Blonde. On the 16th of November 2015, I was sworn in as Attorney of the High Court of South Africa, and finally achieved Elle Woods status. It was the most special day knowing that all my hard work finally paid off. By hard work, I mean an LLB Degree, 4 Attorneys Admission board exams, a Practical Legal Training course and a year of blood, sweat and tears as an articled clerk. In the end, it was all worth it, and I know how proud my family and friends are of me.


Where am I going?

I’m not going anywhere, for now. I am here to stay, as I have big plans for myself and for my blog, so stay tuned. But if/when I do go anywhere, my blog will be coming with me, so you don’t have to worry about me disappearing off the face of (the social media) world again.

P.S. In my quest for Elle Woods status, I did not get a chihuahua named Bruiser Woods. I did, however, get a Netherland Dwarf bunny and named him Dooey. Same same, but different (I guess).

        It’s two months later and I’m wandering through your blog for any posts I might have missed. And up comes this one, and I’m thinking this girl is going to want to wring my neck for stealing her blog post title.
        I wrote a similar post earlier in the week with the exact same title, oops… Great minds think alike?!
        Still enjoying your blog, glad you’re back 🙂 xx
