Unintentional Hiatus? | A little life update

CAUTION: This post is rather rambly. As I write this I am currently sitting outside in the cold before school starts. Fun stuff! Sense the sarcasm, this is not fun. My fingers are freezing.

You probably thought I'd died, either that or I'd accidentally slipped into another dimension in which internet doesn't exist. Fortunately, neither of the above is true.

It's been quite a while since I last updated my blog, (almost a month!) and believe me, I didn't do it on purpose. Though I did have several posts scheduled, there simply weren't enough to accommodate for the amount of time I've been gone. Now the real question: Why exactly have I been gone?

Answer: a multitude of reasons including sickness, birthdays and school.

About a month ago I decided that I wanted to dedicate some time solely towards bettering myself. At the moment I'm not comfortable to go into detail about the topic, but basically I haven't been in a great place over the past few months and I've felt that it's been reflecting negatively on all aspects of my life including my blogging life. I wanted to change that. Over the past few weeks I've been trying to focus on omitting a positive energy and dedicating time to things that I feel are most important, school, family, my health, etc.

I've also been insanely busy. July was hectic. Just two weeks ago I celebrated my 17th birthday, so it was very important to me that I spend time with my family and friends. Two days after my birthday, I came down with a very bad case of the flu. Happy birthday to me! I had a high fever, severe head and body aches, as well as a cough and cold. Not fun!  Having asthma, a cough can be extremely unpleasant. I had difficulty breathing and was just plain ill. I've mostly recovered now but being sick and missing out on school really did set me back a little bit.

To top it all off, I'm now in the middle of my last term of Year 11. Assignments have been flying in left, right and centre. Preliminary exams are in just over five weeks. I'm pretty darn scared.

July was kind of crazy, I'm not gonna lie. I really didn't get a whole lot of reading done either. I think I read about five or six books? I was surprised I even managed that.

The 'hiatus' will be over soon! Though school is quite crazy at the moment I've been making it a point to dedicate a few hours every week to writing up and scheduling posts again. I'm really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things! I'll be posting regularly again, keep your eyes peeled for a view different posts. I have a few discussions and things coming your way soon!

You'll be hearing from me soon!
