Life Lately + Blogging Break?

A note from Joelle... 

♫♪'Good Riddance' - Green Day♫♪

Uh, oh! Here's one of my 'life update' posts that you all love so much ;).
Cutting to the chase... I haven't been feeling too great these last couple of weeks and it has made blogging a bit of a chore.  Despite only having one exam, I am heavily bogged down with other bits of work, finding a flat for next year, trying to get better at driving and also trying to book holidays/fitness schedules. It's all a bit manic so I just wanted to let you know!
As most of you know, I went on a week-long field trip to the Isle of Arran and had a surprisingly good time!
After the Arran trip, I headed back to Aberdeen to spend some time with my pal Elsh. We went to a lot of tea shops and just chilled out for a few days before I headed home to London.
Fast forward a month and it's hard-core revision with new hair/dresses and a Ball in-between! 

I am exhausted. There, I said it. I am finding it quite hard to blog at the moment because I am constantly tired, ill and moody and I can't seem to shake it off like most people.
I call the the 'Meh' Complex, because that is how I feel: 'meh' *with a bit of shoulder shrugging to go with the phrase*.
Don't get me wrong, I love blogging and I how it makes me feel, but I definitely need to do other things for a while (LIKE PASS MY GEOLOGY EXAM!). 
*NEW INFO ALERT!!* I am in the process of having one of my novels re-edited and published, so that's taking up a lot of time too.

 I'm not one of those people who can hide their true feelings as my expressions just appear on my face without my noticing!! So I will still continue to blog (it's what I love and I can't stop!), but maybe only once or twice a week.  I don't want to insult your eyes with crappy posts just to keep my blog 'relevant', so that's why I'm making a few changes to get my life back in order!
What do you think? I hope you stick around during this pseudo-hiatus.

I'll still be ranting (practically 24/7) on Twitter (@joelle_o), so make sure to hit me up on there if you want to chat!

Thanks for reading!

  3. Sorry that you're not feeling great :/ if blogging is becoming a chore, take a break! If you force it, you turn what should be a fun hobby and pasttime into something tiresome and then it ruins it for you. I know, I do this with every single hobby of mine :p very intrigued/jealous about your novel!! Can we hear more about that when you're ready to come back? :) xxx
