What Have I Been Up to Lately?

Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I’ve been here, typing away. I know you’ve seen some Top Ten Tuesday posts appear in the past few weeks. Thank the universe for scheduling, right? Otherwise it would have been complete radio silence. 

I haven’t been posting lately. Whether on my blog or my YouTube channel, I just haven’t found the time or motivation. I could come up with a 1000 excuses. And I do still feel like I need to apologize to you for my absence. To be honest, I know I shouldn’t. This blog, and my channel, are a hobby of mine. I love reading. I love talking about the books I’ve read. I love reading your blog posts and leaving comments. My love for the bookish community has never faded. But I just don’t have much time right now. So here’s what’s been going on in my life lately. 

I’m still working. No surprise there, right? I’m finding it harder than I thought I would to combine a full-time job with reading, blogging, and every other hobby.

I’m excited again about working out. I know, that doesn’t happen often. I usually have to force myself to work out. But in the beginning of September, I participated in a 6K run in support of Think Pink with my colleagues. And to prepare somewhat for that run, I decided to go back to the gym. I’ve discovered that I really, really enjoy weight training. I love the machines, I love pushing until the last rep and seeing how much weight I can challenge myself to push. I haven’t found to courage to start with barbell workouts yet, but I’m hoping I will in the near future. 

I’m excited again about cooking some new, healthy veggie/vegan meals. I want to invest time back into my food, so I start eating a bit healthier. 

I’ve fallen down the KPOP rabbit hole. Yup. It started with BTS, now I’m just all over the place. I’m listening to music, watching music videos and dance practices and random videos of the group members. You’ve sucked me in. 

I started watching Descendants of the Sun. I want to get back into TV shows, and this one looked like a lot of fun! I’ve watched 10 of the 16 episodes so far (I think) and I absolutely love it. 

I turned 23. 

My blog turned 3.

I went on a trip to Naples, Italy. It was wonderful -and sunny!

I’m exhausted. I know, not a fun item, right? But it’s true. I’ve been feeling so exhausted lately. Sleeping 9 hours a night and still being tired. 

That’s what’s been going on in my life lately! I do apologize for my lack of comments on your posts. I just haven’t had the time. I am not abandoning my blog, don’t worry. But I won’t be able to post as much as I used to either. I hope you’ll bear with me.

In Which I Apologize for Being a Terrible Blogger

I have been a terrible blogger the past few months. I took a month-long hiatus a while back, and then decided to pick my blogging back up. That went fine during the month of June. Since July has started though, I’ve been slacking. I’ve barely posted anything, aside from Top 5 Wednesdays and my weekly wrap ups. And I’m sorry. 

I do want to keep my blog going. And I want to create amazing content for you guys, and review the books I’ve been reading. I think half of the books I’ve read this year, I haven’t reviewed yet… 

I haven’t been feeling my best lately. I just don’t quite feel like myself at the moment, and can’t bring myself to write anything. I also haven’t read a single book this week. I’ve read tons of fan fiction though. What I’m trying to say here is: I’m sorry for not being present here. I’m sorry for not reviewing any of the books I’ve read, or writing any posts. 

I can’t write posts that I’m not 100% behind. And so I’ll have to cut back on writing posts and making videos until I’m feeling up to it. Or until I’m reading anything, for that matter. 

I hope you’ll all understand! 

I’M ON HOLIDAY!

As you’re reading this, I’m either on my way or have arrived in Kemer, Turkey. I’m going on a trip with my parents from today, the 19th, until the 30th of July.

I did try to schedule some posts so my blog won’t be completely empty while I’m gone. But I think the WiFi in the hotel will be pretty bad, so I don’t expect I’ll be able to keep up with your posts and comment as much as I want. So expect a lot of comments from me in August, I’ll be trying to catch up!

I can’t wait for sun, lying at the pool, reading, taking walks on the beach and EATING ALL THE FOOD.

I won’t be able to write any weekly wrap ups though, so I’ll try to make a semi-monthly one when I get back so I can show you what I read while I was away.
