I struggled to figure out how to start this post. I can’t tell you why the words didn’t come to me, but I opened the word doc and *poof* nothing. No words. I just stared at a blank page until I saw double.
So here I am, with no idea, no motivation so I figured I’d just start typing. It’s been a while since I’ve done any kind of life update, so let’s go.
Quick Recap/Update before I dive into what I’m reading and watching.
You might have noticed that I’ve not been posting as much. For about a month now, it’s been a bit of a struggle to find the time, energy and motivation to create content. I have a full-time job, 40 hours/week and right now it’s a bit chaotic. It’s also hot as hell at work, and that saps my energy like nothing else. So already, I’m tired by the time I go home. Then I have to come home and do all the stuff that I couldn’t do because of work – i.e. walk Codigo, make dinner, make tomorrow’s lunch, shower and squeeze some kind of nap in. There are some days that I’m so wiped from work, that I legit can’t function without a nap. I also have to do blog stuff, read and try to write.
I just don’t physically have the time. It’s frustrating and I found myself not really caring if I put content out. So, I cut back. Took a step back. For the next while, you’re probably only going to see 1 post per day. I don’t want to completely stop blogging, because I do still love it and I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am, I just need less stress. You also might see me just not post, or take a long weekend off. This will allow me time to actually unwind and even possibly get some writing in. But it’ll also let me schedule more posts in advance, taking stress off me during the week.
And with not posting 2x a day, I don’t have to speed read books in 2 days. I was burning out. Since taking a step back, I’ve actually be able to read for fun – like, read books that I don’t feel the desire to review. I can just get lost in a story, completely stress free. I honestly can’t remember the last time I read a book where I didn’t feel pressured to review it.
So, I’ll still be around, and I’ll still be putting out content! Don’t worry! I just won’t be as active.
With all that being said, let’s take a look at what I’m currently reading and watching – there are quite a few things! Continue reading “Currently Reading & Watching #27 + Little Life Update”
