Taking a Break


I have been putting writing this post off for a while because I couldn't decide what to do. As you may have noticed I haven't been around here for quite sometime. I keep thinking to myself I will have time next week I will have time next week an the reality is I don't have time, or at least not enough time that I feel this deserves. I started my second semester of school at the beginning of May and this semester has been kicking my ass. I have something due in every class each week, so it's a lot more work then last semester and trying to jam everything in really isn't working for me. I love blogging and I don't want it to feel like a chore. It's something I do because I enjoy it not because have to and if starts feeling like that it becomes just like my homework or work and I don't want that. I also don't want my grades to suffer which I have to admit I may have put this before school work a few times first semester. That being said I have decided to take a little bit of a break. I finish this semester in August and hopefully will be back at it because I do really miss it.
I know a lot of you have gone through if not the same thing a similar situation trying to fit everything into your schedule. How did you make it work for you? Any advise?

Good luck with it. I am lucky to be semi retired but even then I wouldn't be able to manage without scheduling posts ahead of time so I'm not feeling pressured by having to write something for a deadline. Cheers

just do whatever works for you. school is your priority now and, as you said, you don't want to force yourself to do your blog if it feels like work. good luck finding a solution/balance!

Ahhh changes in schedule can definitely put a damper on blogging. I have been taking notes as they pop up and put them in my phone. Then if I have time throughout the day but am not home, I start to type up a post in my email and send it to myself. That way I have the text already typed out.
