We’re all struck with the occasional intense impulse. Sometimes that impulse results in a new hairstyle or an updated wardrobe or an unplanned pregnancy. Other times it results in a new blog, like this one.
I gave up “real” blogging a year ago because I was having the suburban white girl version of an existential crisis. Don’t ask me what that entails, exactly. Just trust me when I say it’s a thing and I had it and it prevented me from writing anything more than silly one-liners on Tumblr.
But I snapped out of it as soon as I was accepted into my dream school, the University of Chicago. I’ve been riding the happy rails to jolly town ever since. Why I never picked up blogging where I left off…well, I don’t know. I guess I’ve been in a bit of a daze. But now that I’m back home after my first quarter of college, I can actually stop and soak in everything that’s transpired over the past few months. I can properly introduce old Gab to new Gab and start 2013 as SUPER SPECIAL HYBRID GAB.
Unlike my old blog, Gabracadabra will feature both writing and drawing in every post. Naturally, neither will be particularly good. But I don’t think I can be certified as a legitimate child of the internet unless I run a blog, so…here I am. I expect blog-warming gifts.
