You may (or may not) have been wondering where I’ve disappeared to for the past 3 weeks. I was not planning to take a break from blogging, it just kind of happened. You know how it is – things get busy, unexpected stuff happens that throws you off your game, you’re trying to juggle an armload of projects at once, etc. We’ve all been there. And sometimes, you just need to take a break.
Around mid-May, I was beginning to feel creatively drained, tired, and worn out. (It’s the end of the school year, I think its a universal experience XD) I had exams to study for, violin scales to memorize, math to finish, essays to write, and classes to attend. Something needed to be taken off my plate and pushed to the side for a bit. That thing happened to be blogging. So, I closed the WordPress tab, opened my school binder, and got to work.
Now that exams are over, math is nearly finished, and my homeschool co-op is done, I can really focus on blogging again. I have some super fun plans for the summer, (including a trip or two) so you can look forward to reading about them in future blog posts! I also have a pretty long TBR list, including Fahrenheit 451, Dear Evan Hansen, Absolutely Normal Chaos, and The Lord of the Rings Series (I know, I know, please don’t hate me because I haven’t read them yet XD). I’m hoping to do a couple reviews on the books mentioned above (and possibly some movies), so you can expect to see those, too!
I recently saw on Bekah’s blog that she did a “currently…” post, which I believe is an appropriate thing to do today, considering you guys haven’t heard from me in 3 weeks. (Plus, it looks like a fun and different thing to try!) So, here we go!
