Hello my darlings! Long time, no see. I hope you’re all doing wonderfully!
I’ve taken a step back from my blog this past month, primarily from a stressful life and unsuccessful reading experience.
As I’ve talked about in the past, I’ve been in a weird reading slump; half finishing books and never meeting my TBR goals. Even though I have finished quite a few memorable and thought-provoking reads, I haven’t been able to really enjoy and appreciate a well-written book. Maybe it’s me, or maybe I have yet to find something that kindles a flame inside my dead heart.
Either way, it’s not been a very good reading time.
Since I wasn’t reading any new books, I didn’t have any drive to post on my book-focused blog. It didn’t feel right. Eventually, I succumbed to smoke sessions and reruns of The Office and Trailer Park Boys to fill my spare time while simultaneously avoiding my graduate application. Ya girl wasn’t getting shit done.
But I’m happy to say that I’m feeling inspired and motivated enough to announce my return!
It could be the recent full moon, or the fact that it’s my birth month (happy libra season!!), but I’m ready to reorganize both my life and my blog.
After some minor reflections, I’ve decided to revamp my blog to not only book-related content, but also an outlet to experiment with my own writings, as well as a few random shit posts.
TBR posts and typical book hauls just aren’t doing it for me anymore, which I hope is a good thing, and I want my writing to be both organic and authentic.
Not that I think my previous posts are bad or disingenuous, but they felt very structured and often forced. I wasn’t having fun with it, but I think I feel more comfortable now to branch out into new, fresh and fun content and writing, whatever that may consist of.
Don’t worry, I’ll still be doing book reviews, hauls, and recommendations, but I’m going to take a break from TBRs and, maybe (depending on how many books I finish), monthly wrap-ups. However, I’m going to be posting more poems, short stories, articles, or whatever I’m feeling at that particular time.
I’m definitely looking forward to letting myself relax and enjoy writing rather than making it a chore, as well as getting my shit together for grad school, and I’m ecstatic to dive into some new creative elements!
Honestly, with Trump testing positive for COVID-19, things are already starting to look up. Nevertheless, VOTE. HIM. OUT. PLEASE. FOR THE LOVE OF HUMANITY.
I hope you all have a wonderful and spooky libra season! Sending much love and successful reading endeavors to all of you, and thanks for sticking around for this sporadic mess of a life update.
