Sooooo… I haven’t been very active lately. I only posted 2 posts in November (apart from my November TBR). Also, I don’t even remember the last time I wrote a review. The results are very clear. Less and less people are seeing my post because I have been a freaking ghost! A vague memory of a blogger once upon a time…Okay let’s not get too dramatic.
I don’t know if anyone even noticed. If anyone even cares. But I have been pretty inactive. There are reasons. But I’m not trying to make excuses, where there is a will there is a way. Also, I’m not trying to just complain and be negative. All I’m doing is just trying to explain what things made it harder for me to focus on my blog lately.
For starters, I’m currently pretty close to my finals of the first part of my first semester. They start next Tuesday. It’s my second year of uni studying psychology, and it’s taking a lot out of me. It has been way more stressful than I anticipated it to be. I have been struggling to get all my assignments done before the deadlines and now I’m completely stressed out (“wish we could turn back time… to the good old days…”) over my finals. It has made me put blogging, as well as reading, on the back burner.
The second big thing is having to move on a really short notice. So let me explain. Here in the Netherlands, there is no ‘living on campus’. Pretty much all universities are just schools. So if you want to live near school you just have to rent an apartment, alone or with a group of people. I decided to go live with my boyfriend instead, because we lived about two hours apart, traveling by train. So we have been living together for a little less than a year and we were supposed to live here for another year. But something shitty happened and we have to move out before the 1st of December (I’m not getting into the details of what happened but basically our landlord messed up). So now we have to find a new place on an extremely short notice and fix a bunch of stuff for moving. We haven’t found a new place yet. So it’s safe to say I’m freaking out.
Again I’m not writing this as an excuse, and I’m not writing this to gain your sympathy. I just wanted to inform you guys on what’s been going on. For anyone who cares about this blog.
I want to end this post off by saying, I’m working on it. There is still a very stressful/busy month ahead of me so I’m not promising anything. But I’m sure I’ll get back to being more active with reading and posting when things settle down!
Thanks for reading ❤︎
