Basically, university kind of put me on temporarily hold from blogging. With my deadlines being last month and so much work needed for them, I felt I couldn't find the free time really to think of new content and write so much about it like I did in the summer where my blogging was at its best. Don't get me wrong, majority of the uni work I did I really did enjoy doing, such as my designing and millinery, quite a bit I posted about on my Instagram. I wanted to write new stuff yet the mindset just wasn't there. I felt I was organised enough with my studies for my first set of deadlines this year, but it was a case of I achieved one small part, then another big section was waiting to be completed.
I suppose it wasn't just my studies either that got in the way: it was also the fact that I had hit a wall with what I could have written on my blog. I always overthink what I want to publish on my blog which will be enjoyable to read, something you could relate to and also something that I myself had enjoyed writing. I've always been someone who overthinks everything and it explains why I get stressed so easily: I always want everything to be perfect and, even though I know nothing is ever going to be 100% spot-free perfect, I struggle to accept that I make mistakes. I take mistakes as a positive because that's how I learn, it's how we all learn: so maybe neglecting my blog for the past months was a mistake.
I write this blog as something to do in my down-time. It's a source of relaxation and even know as I'm typing this, I'm writing it so easily because I feel that writing about my own thoughts and opinions is something that comes so naturally to me, and it feels just lovely to do.
That being said, I am fully determined to make the most of what I can do with blogging. I really want to pursue it further this year and take it to a place where I know it'll be worth the hour I took away from uni studies because I am allowed to relax! I'm slowly starting to accept that an hour away from uni studies is allowed and I am allowed to put it to one side and just focus on what goes on outside of uni: my boyfriend, my family, my friends and anything else that does not require stress and study mode to be switched on.
So even though this was titled to be a little update, I rather think it has turned into a unleashing-my-feelings-type post. But I hope it was worth the read, and I look forward to continuing to write my blog as much as possible in 2018 x
