Lately my life is intact while my inner deterioration is gaining speed. I hardly feel anything but stressed anymore. I used to have (sometimes random, sometimes caused) moments of excitement or peace or pure happiness, and some emotions that I don't think even have a name yet. Now I feel like I've stretched myself into a shell with no meaning left inside. I've been reevaluating my time, and calendar, and priorities, and... well, everything. My life. And I've decided that blogging no longer means what it once did to me. This used to be a creative outlet, but now it's a place to ramble and show off my life.
I'm stressed out, wasting time, scheduling every jot and tittle of my life, and no longer enjoying any of it. So, this is me, saying thank you and sorry. The party was fantastic, and this past year of blogging wasn't a loss. I learned a lot about myself, met lots of wonderful new people, and improved my writing. (Not to mention, I expanded my reading far beyond what I would have without the offer of free books.) While I was planning to just quit and let my blog float around in cyberspace for all eternity, my mother warned me not to completely scrap a good experiences because I poured too much of myself into it.
So I'm disposing of my blog schedule and from now on, you'll see me when you see me. Whether that's once a week or once a month, and how many reviews or whatnot I'll be doing, I don't know. There may be future giveaways, parties, interviews - who knows? But I'm not going to turn this website into my life again; that's not what cyberspace was meant for.
