Final goodbye

Some things need to come to an end. Crazy european Masters degrees are no exception. I have been hesitant to say anything because this was my creative home away from home for so long. And no one wants to be homeless, so I didn't want to put the final nail in the coffin until I had a new baby in my arms. Now I do, and now I can.

Now anyone who would like to keep up on my life, regardless of where it may take me can do so — at colinbate.com

In theory the next step for me will be to collect all of the 160-odd posts that I made on this site and combine them, along with the photos that were taken, into some sort of unified document. I'm thinking along the lines of a book. Like a yearbook, but just about me. Likely this "book" will take up residency as some sort of PDF file, but it is possible that I may get it printed somewhere they allow small numbers of copies to be printed. I think back to my time as yearbook editor in high school and remember all the crazy deadlines and hard work, but also the incredible fun I had birthing something original, conceived in my own head. If I can remove the urgency and restrictions inherent in that situation, I think I can really have fun with this. Of course, remove the urgency and deadlines and you have a project which I will think about doing for years to come, doomed to remain a twinkle in my eye. Just like the DVD I was going to author from all my photos from my undergrad.

I will however keep the site online, it does attract attention from some new students of my program and I have no desire to remove that. If anything develops with this site, I will post it both here and on colinbate.com. Otherwise however, this site is retired.

Cheers.

What Now?

Well, it would seem that for the most part, my Europe Adventure is over. It has been an amazing time. Now, I am reviving the ailing colinbate.com and going to make a go of it over there. All the best.
