RST: Back from Hiatus

First things first, hi all! It’s good to be back. I take way too many breaks. I’ll work on that but who’s to say something won’t come up again.

I used this break to sort out some stuff and made a few changes in my life. I went ‘back to school’, moved back home, had my eyes opened to a few things and was of course separated from my books for months. This is where I wish that teleportation was a thing because I have almost 400 books and they couldn’t come with me. We’re in the same vicinity now but I still don’t have access to them. This is the kind of suffering I have to go through in order to go after my dreams.

While on break, I read, watched movies for my Movie/TV Show vs. Book segment and thought up a few posts for RST. I hope to be a lot more diligent with my schedule this year because as lax as I’ve been with my blog, I’m all about routine and things being done a certain way. I’m also a major procrastinator so that plays a part in this situation. Of course, I can’t help those unexpected circumstances that turn up which force me to step away. I’m trying to get things scheduled months in advance so that if I do need to take a break, my blog doesn’t suffer the consequences.

I’m not changing anything, the schedule remains the same. See my schedule here.

Thank you for not deserting me during this time and I appreciate all the well wishes. It meant a lot and it was great to know that you all would still be here when I came back. These past few months were not easy and I only got through it because God was on my side and I knew I had something to come back to. My blog is my happy place so obviously I made a huge sacrifice stepping away from it. It was what had to be done though.

I couldn’t resist writing because it’s part of who I am, so I wrote and saved it to my computer all set to be scheduled when the time came. There’s a lot I had to get used to and it took some time but now that that’s all done, I’m ready to get this ball rolling again. Here’s to an amazing blogging year ahead.

Thanks for stopping by,

I’m Taking a Break

As you can see from the title, I’ll be taking a break. I know I just came back from a hiatus that lasted from mid-2016 to the end of the year. I also realise that I just started a new blogging schedule and this break can’t come at a worse time.

Thing is, as important as my blog is to me, I have other important things to focus on as well i.e. my studies and my life.

My blog helps with my mental health but I don’t think this outlet is going to help me when I’m stressing about deadlines and whether or not I’m doing well enough to pass. I have to prioritise, you know.

In saying that, I’m sad to be stepping away but it’s what I need to do if I want to excel in achieving my goals.

Any posts that go up while I’m gone were scheduled beforehand and I don’t think I’ll be scheduling any more for the moment. I won’t be reviewing novels/comic books for the foreseeable future and I’ve already updated my review policy.

Good luck to those currently writing exams and happy reading,

See you when I get back,
Caron xx
