So here we have it…the end of The Virginia Monologues.
Believe us this was a difficult decision to make. We LOVE writing this – honestly, every disaster we have encountered (and there have been many) has been met with the phrase, “at least this’ll make a good blog post!” and I have been known to blog in my mind during classes to alleviate boredom. And yet, to save everyone’s sanity, we have decided to quit while we are ahead and not bore you with our uneventful, decidedly un-American summers, and so have decided to finish the blog. Let’s call it a hiatus more than an official end: we may return one day. Thanks everyone for your dedication to “the blog” – if you had stopped reading we would have stopped writing so it’s all your fault we kept annoying you on a regular basis. I don’t think either of us ever thought we’d get as many people reading this as we did (although admittedly most of our views came from our self-indulgent Sorority Girls recaps and that one riot in the library).
We’ve come a long way since Sophie was posting in between selling Volvos and drowing in a sea of medical records, and I was listing the many things I had completely failed to do – although in many ways we have also come full circle as Sophie has gone right back to work and I have still lost all my possessions and am still bored and hopelessly unemployed. But we’ve also developed a new appreciation for fried chicken, for exercise and for Natty Light and of course we have grown spiritually as people and, somewhere between JFK on August 16th and Miami on June 11th, Found Ourselves. Sort of.
Thank you everyone for the most amazing year, I can’t believe it is already over. Be assured we are already making plans to return to the ‘Burg in due course…so watch out.
But at least for now, goodbye! It’s been real guys.
Sophie & Bella
a.k.a. Team England.
