6 months. I haven’t written anything in 6 months.
In my last wrap-up, I mentioned that I would probably be MIA for the next weeks and well… I was. 2019 was both an amazing and insane year for me. I did a lot of things that I didn’t think I would be able to do, let alone in a single year. I traveled a lot, I met amazing people, I joined a student organization, I got the internship I wanted and I did well at school (without going insane, which is not always a given in college).
However, it also meant that I just couldn’t fit the blog into my packed schedule without compromising other aspects of my life. At first, I thought things would calm down with the holidays but they didn’t, this summer alone I visited five countries. Also, it didn’t help that I couldn’t read a single thing for almost three months, I was in the worst reading slump I ever had, I couldn’t focus on books at all. For a while, I forced myself to read but, as you can imagine, it’s not the best way to enjoy books and it made my slump even worse.
When I’m unable to read, I can’t even focus on book related content. One of my favorite aspect of blogging is interacting with other content creators and I wasn’t even able to do that which was very frustrating. I even thought that I would never be able to read again and that maybe I should stop blogging entirely.
As a matter of fact, I guess my brain just needed time to relax. In September, I finally read a book. One book is not much but, for me, it’s still better than zero. In October, I read another book and in November, I read two including a book that I loved so much that it made me realize how much I missed you guys and this little blog. Indeed, the first thing that came to my mind when I finished it was that I wanted to share my feelings about it.
So, what’s coming?
I really want to go back to blogging. At the rate I’m reading books, I can’t promise to post a lot of reviews, but still, I want to ramble about books. I missed it a lot.
I have a lot of catch-up to do, I want to talk about the books that I managed to read before my break and, more importantly, I want to talk about the books that got me out of my slump. I would also like to experiment a bit more with my content, I want to make more discussions about books, I would also like to branch out and talk about movies and TV shows I like (because I have been watching a lot of them recently!). I already have several posts ready to go that will be published in the coming days so I hope you’ll enjoy them!
Thanks a lot for reading this post, it means a lot to me. 🙂
