GOING BACK TO SCHOOL: THOUGHTS AND BLOGGING PLANS

I’M GOING BACK TO SCHOOL ON MONDAY!!!

The words in all caps (plus the exclamation points) don’t mean I’m excited. They mean that I’m trying hard to rein in my anxiety and I’m stopping myself from screaming in anguish at my dog.

I’ve been complaining about going to school for a while now but it’s a part of my life I can’t run away from. Read on and find out about my blogging plans and some of my thoughts!

BLOGGING

There’s no way in all levels of Tartarus that I’m going to leave this blog. This has been a huge part of my life for the past couple of months and of course, I know you’ll probably (this is 1% likely) miss my presence so I won’t let this go.

I might not be blogging regularly now that I’m going back to school but I have some posts scheduled for next week so I won’t be completely absent. When my scheduled posts run out, I will try my best to write more and keep up with blogging. Of course that entirely depends on my teachers’ kindness (this is highly unlikely since they always seem to remove 18 years of my life when they assign lots of activities) and my superpowers of multi-tasking (which I’m not really good at).

I hope you will keep supporting me and this blog even though I won’t be able to be around that much. Just know that I’ll try my best to give you all the quality content you deserve when I have the time.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Twitter

I can’t promise that I’ll be active with blogging but I can assure you that my presence in Twitter will still be as corporeal as always. Twitter is my fifth limb and I won’t be able to take a break from it no matter how hard I try (not that I ever tried).

I will be imparting bookdragon wisdom there plus the occasional screaming and ranting but if you ever miss me (will you?) just slide to my Twitter profile (@rainfallsdown44) and you’ll find me lurking there. After my classes, of course. I’m a rather diligent student despite all my complaints and talks of impending doom.

Instagram

YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT. I finally made a bookstagram account!!! *more fireworks for me*

The account is still an infant (not even a week old) but I will certainly post more pictures of my smol sons (a.k.a books) there because they’re highly photogenic. Now that I’m thinking about it, it’s kinda *stupid* irrational that I made an account so close to the coming back to school date. HA HA HA SOMETIMES MY MIND WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS.

Anyway, thank you to everyone who encouraged me to take a step and swallow my insecurities. The positive words of my friends in the bookish community made me come out of my introverted shell. THANK YOU SO MUCH, YOU MAGNIFICENT CREATURES.

If you want, just keep track of my bookstagram and you’ll find me posting pictures and stories there (@/bookdragonism).

READING

I’M SO SLOW WITH MY READING RIGHT NOW I THINK I’VE BEEN POSSESSED BY THE SPIRIT OF A SLOTH. My reading progress always suffers when I focus on some other things like Twitter, bookstagram, this blog, and now school. I’m still learning the sorcery of multi-tasking and not procrastinating so I’m not reading much nowadays. I’m also focusing on ARCs and galleys so obviously my TBR pile is now planning a mutiny.

With school looming over my head like a shadow of death, I think I’m going to be lucky if I read 5 books in a month which means I won’t be able to post book reviews that much. BUT I will schedule some reviews (hopefully) when I have free time.

That’s about it. Things will change a bit when I get back to school but I hope y’all will still be there to support me because I always keep all of you in my smol heart. I just made this post to inform you that my blogging life would not be quite the same now. I think it would have been quite unfair if I just disappeared for days or weeks without you knowing where I am. That’s assuming that you care about me, of course.

JUST KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU ALL AND I APPRECIATE ALL THE SUPPORT YOU’RE GIVING ME FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY BEATING HEART. *sends crates of chocolates your way*

  4. Of course we will miss you when you are gone, like 100%! I know that going back to school is hard, and adding blogging in the mix can make it even harder. I still have a couple of weeks until I go back, so I am doing my best to schedule as many posts as possible (even though I am an uber procrastinator who never schedules posts). Good luck with your school year!

    1. Aww thank you! And I can relate to procrastinating! I just don’t know how some people can schedule like 15687 blogposts in a day. The most I can do is one πŸ˜‚
