Trying To Be Better…

You all know how I’m prone to accidentally taking month long hiatuses?

Well…I did it again. I’m working on, well, not doing it, but…

In my defense I was:

a) Out of the country with no internet until the ninth

b) Had a Chemistry unit exam, an APUSH unit exam, and an AP CALCULUS CUMULATIVE MIDTERM EXAM

c) And the SAT (I took it yesterday, it was…well, it was a six hour test is what it was.)

I haven’t even had time to watch Sherlock, let alone blog.

But, I think everything is going to be a little less crazy for a while, so I’m trying to schedule a bunch of tags/reviews/posts. I’m so far managed to read a lot this year, between the cruise and the fact that in my Spanish class I finish my work fast/we have no work most days. So the reading slump of last year has been annihilated!

Thanks…Basically everything I wanted to say. I’ll be back to blogging semi-regularly soon.

I have:

  • 13 book reviews getting written/scheduled
  • 12 tags that I’m behind on to do
  • A lot of movie reviews drafted
  • And a whole list of discussion post ideas I want to get written, but those will likely be concentrated over the summer, where I have the time/mental energy to write them well. (Give me suggestions too!)

I also want to maybe bring back some features, as I’ve basically stopped doing a lot of them…

Some are:

  • Scars and Stories (Personal stories / ridiculous ways I’ve injured myself)
  • Throwback Thursday (old samples of my writing / stories or essays)
  • Top Ten Tuesday / Top 5 Wednesday etc.
  • Thinking of adding a photography feature too (not bookstagram)

These are some I’ve done in the past (first two of my own making). Would you guys be interested in seeing me bring any of these back? Or doing any other weekly-bookish meme, maybe one you find fun? Let me know and give me suggestions down in the comments!

    Hi! Welcome back! Month long hiatuses are my speciality don’t you worry about that xD Blogging takes blood, sweat and tears (well, kind of) so it’s fine if you have to take a step back because of school and life. Cos those are really important. :3 You seem to have had an extremely jam packed month though! So many exams ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Hope they went well.
    Looking forward to your upcoming posts! Scars and Stories sounds hilarious xD

  2. Hiatuses aren’t a bad thing, sometimes they’re really necessary. Sometimes you just feel burnt our from a variety of things including blogging and you need a break. I would love to see old samples of writing!

  3. I definitely feel the struggle of keeping up with schoolwork while trying to be an active blogger; if it makes you feel any better, I’m behind on about 50 tags/awards and several book reviews and posts. I try not to let it bother me too much, though, since blogging should be more about having fun and relaxing then a job or chore. Glad to have you back, Sam! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I think it is expected that when you have so much going on in real life, you will be away from time to time. And you seem to be accomplishing a lot. Although.. tsk tsk to not catching up on Sherlock ๐Ÿ˜‰ I kid, I am still trying to find time to finish the final episode. Good to see you back on ๐Ÿ™‚
