Today would have marked the fourth week in a row that I haven’t posted anything on this blog. Whilst I am still somewhat unmotivated, and utterly swamped and burnt out with uni work, I just couldn’t let that happen.
As the title suggests, this is less likely to be a discursive post, a collection of my thoughts about a bookish topic, and more of a rambling catch-up, an apology and a hesitant promise that I will try my hardest to get back to weekly posting. Feel free to stop reading here.
I have three months left of my university career, something that I am aware, but have yet to absorb the gravity, of. Instead, it’s a muddle of ‘I’ve got three months, and I have to do this, and this, and oh yeah that as well’ and ‘how on earth am I going to get anything done!’. The kind of mad rush that sends me into a frenzied panic and causes me to lock myself in my bedroom with a desperate attempt to stay motivated; to do the last essays for a course which, if I’m frank, I no longer feel any love for.
This onslaught of deadlines means that I have little to no time to indulge my bookish side. I’m lucky if I read 10 pages a week of anything not related to Sociology, have a Youtube subscription box full of my favorite Booktubers sharing their TBRs for February, haven’t read a blog post in weeks, and just feel unmotivated and uninspired when it comes to posting on this blog.
So, I apologise, both for this somewhat self-indulgent, worries-me-post and for my lack of posting and interaction. I will try to regain my routine, I promise! I have a notebook full of ideas for things I want to research and discuss: genres, reviewing and being analytical, the importance of covers; I’m just a little tired of typing and staring at a screen.
To any other uni students or anybody with a mountain of deadlines that feel unbeatable- we’ve got this! We can do this! Good luck!
And one final note: Thank you to everyone who continues to visit, read and interact with this little space on the internet, it is hugely appreciated, and I am very grateful to you all. ❤
