Hey, it’s been a while. I think you're due for an update. Whoever is reading this.
It is officially the first day of semester break for my fellow uni-goers and I here in Perth. And I am feeling ever so slightly rundown. You’d think that after these past weeks of study, and for once, I actually did spend endless days in the library, that I would be running wild, lapping up the freedom and less stressful days to come for the next six weeks of winter. But for some reason, I am not feeling as cheery as I would have expected.
Partly due to exhaustion, partly due to Europe jealousy (I swear at least 50% of my friends are currently in Greece), and partly due to the fact that I haven’t had the chance to focus on my blog for the past couple of weeks, in a bid to not get distracted and avoid procrastinating for once in my life. As a result, on the first Monday of week one of break, I’ve spent six hours catching up on Netflix and Youtube. Not exactly productive. I’ve been wanting to smash out a blog post all day long, as it is a Monday after all, and it’s probably time I got back into the swing of things.
After taking almost a fortnight off blogging, I am finding it hard to be inspired and excited about it, because I just haven’t had the ball rolling for a while. I set a good habit for a while there, posting around twice a week, which you could either find annoying or quite the opposite, but I guess you’re here reading this so I must be doing something right. In a bid to get back into it, I am writing this quick little life update to re-spark the fire that is to come over the next month or so.
I am actually beyond excited for these holidays. I have so much planned for you guys, I even started using iCal this morning to get super organised and start planning posts and videos in advance. But above all, I am so keen to just put all of my energy into blogging. During the semester, I love working on articles and what not of course, but I always feel slightly guilty about it, as it is somewhat an avoidance technique that I use to put off study. I can’t wait to truly commit to the blog without any outside distractions, without the guilt, and without interruptions. I am currently working on creating some serious, proper content for both this blog and my Instagram, and next week is very exciting because drum roll….. my first proper Youtube video is going live! If you haven’t already seen my little introductory video then give that a watch here, it basically explains why I am starting a Youtube channel and all of those other bits and bobs in my awkward overly expressive way. Anyway, if you already have seen it, keep your eyes peeled for next weeks article, the “The Rack - Winter 2017” which will come along with a lovely video for all of you out there who really can’t be bothered reading this ramble!
Of course, this wouldn’t be an opinion post by me if it didn’t have some sort of moral or message. What I am getting at is, I can’t wait to truly throw myself into this because this is what I truly love! I have been feeling a bit subpar because I haven’t been blogging - I haven’t been spending time making myself happy, doing what makes me, me. So everyone out there reading this who is also on uni break like myself, or even if you aren’t - use you're time wisely. Put time and effort into the things that really make you who you are, the things that put a smile on your face, the things that make you excited. Because what are we really here for if we aren’t doing just that?
Get ready for me to be flooding all of your feeds all over again, I know I am.
