I’ve been struggling the last month, or probably six weeks, with finding the time in my life to do the things I want to do. Mostly that is reading and blogging, but also seeing my boyfriend and family.
It seems like over over the last few weeks I spend all my time sweating and showering, and feeling sorry for myself about that, then aimlessly browsing the Internet, and I don’t get anything real or productive done.
I’m also finding it hard to concentrate in work. There’s lots to be done, and not a whole lot of time to do it in, but there are so many things I need to prioritise that I seem to end up panicking and not doing any of them.
So the combination of the heat, the busyness, how much work I have to do (and don’t get me wrong, I love it, and I’m privileged to have the job I do), and how little motivation or time I seem to have lately is having an impact on my blogging. Partially this is because I’m not actually reading that much, but also because I don’t have the time to write blogposts.
And, honestly, I can’t really see that changing in the immediate future. So this post is me giving myself a bit of breathing space, admitting I am busy, and advising that posting frequency is probably going to go down in the immediate future. I have enough guilt weighing me down about the things I’m not getting done, I don’t need guilt from the blog (which is supposedly to be fun!) on top of that.
I don’t know how to get out of this life slump, and I’m hoping it will pass soon, but if anyone has any tips, I’d be very glad to hear them!
Equally, if you have any really gripping books that you’d recommend, hit me with them too. Hopefully YALC next week will get me hyped for books again!
