When I handed in my last final of sophomore year, all I could feel was an immeasurable sense of pure relief. At long last, I was finally free of the papers, quizzes, and endless reading assignments that had plagued me for the past few months. My time was finally mine again, which meant I could get back to what I loved most: blogging.
It had been a long time since I had blogged consistently. During the Fall semester, my first semester at my transfer school, I had fallen behind in blogging…far behind. I was in class 20+ hours a week, with homework, studying, and 2 jobs on top of that. When the semester was finally finished, I swore to myself that the Spring semester would be different, but that obviously didn’t happen. My classes were even harder and time-consuming than before (which I didn’t even realize was possible) and all of the blog posts that I had planned and drafted over the break were put on the back-burner as I played an endless game of catch-up. I had never felt more stressed or behind than I did this past semester. Needless to say, I was relieved when summer finally arrived.
So now that Summer is finally here, I’ve made it my goal to take my blog more seriously than ever before, and this time I’m holding myself to it. No excuses!
