So, Did You Die?
Hello! I am not dead. Nope. SUCK IT SCHOOL, YOU DIDN’T KILL ME. But I have been a bit of a ghost on here. I’m trying to get my life in order, it’s fine. In the time you’ve heard from me last (don’t think about it too much, because it’s depressing) I’ve started a BookTube, read lots of books, started my last semester of my undergrad, got really sick, and rethought my life and social media. Yeah, it’s been quite some time. Since then, I’ve been reevaluating my social media and bookish goals. Because I have a lot and sadly I have yet to figure out how to create more time for myself (one day though, one day).
Let’s just say, lots has to change. What does that mean for my blog? I actually haven’t quite worked that out. Here’s the deal: Bookstagram is forever going to be a thing for me. That’s where I started and it’s where all of my friends are. Then there’s BookTube. I know that’s newer for me, but I enjoy it so much and it’s very different from all of the other work that I do. Since I write books and essays and reads books and essays for a living and for school, it can get exhausting. I love reading blogs, but sometimes I need a break from reading things (I am a heathen, I know). That leaves me scratching my head with what to do about this blog. Because I really do love writing posts, but I don’t like the pressure I’ve felt to write and it was taking away from my novel writing time. I might do what I decided to do with my BookTube channel: make short entries that don’t take me forever and a day to write so that this doesn’t become a burden, but remains something I really enjoy doing. They might be just book reviews. WHO KNOWS.
That’s probably the direction I’m heading with this. It’s all an adventure and I have no idea what I’m doing. (Story of my life.)
Thanks for coming on this journey with me and for your patience! Maybe one day I’ll figure out my life. But probably not.
