The End

I always hated "endless" blogs - you know, you find a cool blog, read through all the archives, then notice that the most recent post was several months ago. Then the uncertainty: will the writer post again? Are they on a break, or gone for good?

I'm not deluded enough to believe this blog has followers who are so passionate, but in any case here it is: the end. I'm calling it quits officially.

What to end with? A simple reflection, I suppose: I started this blog, the Hungarian Experiment, four years ago when I first arrived in Hungary. I'm four years older, four years more experienced in teaching, four years more fluent in Hungarian, and with four years more knowledge about Hungary. None of these things will cease to grow or expand; I'm not going anywhere. But the experimental stage of living in Hungary is over for me. So I'm calling the experiment off, and I'm calling it a success. Thanks for reading.

Edited in April, 2013 to add: my current Hungarian adventures are now part of a new blog.

I taught in Hungary years ago and just pull your and other teachers' feeds into Google Reader for an occasional dose of nostalgia - so thanks for sharing and good luck!

Emily, I read your blog faithfully, and recognised so many of your experiences in school. I had the same stuff. I'll miss the blog -- a lot. Thanks.

I really liked your blog too. Now life in Hungary is not such an experiment- how about another one with a different title?
