A Long-Awaited Update


Wow. I feel like I haven't sat down to properly think about writing a blog post in absolutely ages - and to be quite honest with you, it has been a while!

Life has well, and truly got in the way of everything - yet again. I feel like I haven't had time to come up for air to breathe these last few weeks, let alone maintain a social life, and create content for my beloved blog. Every day I have thought about coming back, and trying to get into the flow of things again, and finally the day has come. I should be cracking on with coursework, and other commitments, but sometimes, you just need to take a step back, and take a little time to focus on the things that set your soul on fire. Studying is, of course, important in regard to my future career prospects, but my mental health is more important, and it always will be.

The main reason that I've been so MIA on pretty much all of my social media, and especially when it comes to neglecting my blog is because I have just had so much going on in every aspect of my life. I have to put 100% of my time, and effort into Sixth Form, and with that comes mock exams to revise, and prepare for, coursework deadlines, referrals for said coursework, notes that I need to sort out for my Criminology course, which I have chosen to do for my DofE, meetings to attend for the programme, volunteering in a local charity shop for it, and on top of that, I have to fit in going to my part time job whenever I can manage it as well! I also start personal training in a couple of weeks, and I'm still trying to write my book, so it's all go, go, go!

Don't get me wrong, I love being busy, and I love having things to work on, and try to progress with, but sometimes I do begin to feel slightly swamped under, I must admit! Even though it's hard, as I can't exactly prioritise blogging out of everything else on the list, I do want to try and dedicate at least an hour in the evenings to write up even just a few paragraphs here, and then, or comment on some other people's posts to share the love. It feels like I haven't done that in months!!

Not only have I been busy lately in general, but I've also been lacking motivation when it comes to my blog. I am always so proud of the posts that I produce, and I never write, or publish any of them halfheartedly, so that's partly why I have taken a spontaenous break again. I just haven't been able to get into the flow since the New Year, but I'm going to do my best to organise, and manage my time much more effectively from now on, and I'll try to brainstorm some new ideas for my blog, so that it doesn't keep getting neglected! Please let me know if you have any feedback, or constructive criticism, as I would really appreciate it. You can either do so in the comments under this post, through my social media, or via the survey that I've created! It can be found here.

I hope you are all doing well too. Let me know if you have any updates, or any news that you would like to share, and I'll make sure I reply to all of you as soon as I can!

I'll hopefully have some more content coming your way soooon! Bear with me, my lovelies!

Lots of love always,
