A Life Update

Today I’m bringing something a little different to the blog: A life update. I used to always blog about myself and my life when I first started the blog 6 years ago, but since relaunching the blog and going on a posting schedule, the blog has been more about sharing my knowledge and what I experience here in Dubai and less about ME.
