Sooooo you guys (yes, all ten of you who actually read my blog!) might have noticed that I haven't been around lately. In fact, I haven't really been around since December's Debutante Event and I think I owe it to your guys to explain what's been happening...
Okay, SO this year I started my senior years at school and honestly, education is kicking my ass. It's been a wake up call for me because I've never really had to study for exams. I've always been one of those kids who breezed through classes and got pretty good grades. So I went into this year thinking that it was going to be more or less the same.
This year has been a huge slap in the face. The work load is enormous and I have never felt so stressed in my life. I have a never ending list of assignments, I'm struggling in my classes, I'm pulling all nighters, I don't even go out on weekends anymore (not that I used to but I like to have that option, you know?)! For someone who used never did any homework and would cram for exams the night before, it's a huge change. I've had to change all my study habits and really take a step back and reorganise my priorities. Most of the time I feel like this -
And as much as I love my blog, reading and hanging out with people in this awesome community, my future is kinda on the line. I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with my life yet *cough* marry someone rich and never have to work *cough* but I want to do as well as I can so I have plenty of opportunities. I want to be successful and if that means giving up weekends, time for blogging and reading,
my soul and my other hobbies ( except food) then so be it.
I try to get at least one blog post up every week but it's hard. The last thing you want to do after writing a 25 page assignment is write a 600 word review. More importantly, I don't even have the time to READ. I've gone from reading 10-15 books a month to reading 20 books in FOUR months. So I don't even have that many books to review!
I have thought about taking a break but I enjoy blogging too much. I don't want to give it up and I would rather get one post up a week than not post at all. I know I haven't been doing Breakfast with the Bookie posts, I haven't been writing reviews, debut of the month is more often than not late and I've given up on book hauls altogether (although you can follow me on instagram for them - lisayuuu) and I'm very very SORRY about it!
Please forgive me and I'm going to try to get more posts up but it's just really hard! Thanks to everyone who has stuck with me over the years and who still read my blog ( yes, all TEN of you!). So I guess I'm going to head back into my little cave of loneliness and homework now...
Badass Bookie xx
PS - this post is probably filled with spelling and grammatical error but I'm too lazy to proof read. Ain't nobody got time for that.
