Monday Musings #4: Long Weekend Edition + Giveway news
Hello everyone! It has been an INCREDIBLY long time since I've blogged and I do apologize for that.
I was doing pretty well with the blogging at one point this year (in other words, just January, according to my archive count on the side of my blog), but that essentially flopped as I got very busy with trying to balance both work, school, and extracurriculars.
Before this long drought of blogging, one of my main factors was sleep- and not being inspired to truly blog. I started getting more shifts, and I started sacrificing my blogging time to sleeping, because I was starting to lose a lot of it.
I am graduating from high school this year, and I got into my top-pick university in April, so now I'm just trying to keep my marks up for university scholarships. Now that it's May, I've reached a point where I can't even pick up a book without realizing I have something to finish for school, just feeling exhausted, and choosing to hang out with my friends before the year ends.
But, since it's my last year, I don't want my blogging to take a back seat. I will be posting more reviews than I will feature posts (since they take forever to make), and I probably won't be able to blog consistently till the summer, when my life will literally revolve around just work, sleep and my blog.
I know this isn't a proper Monday Musings post (just another one of my lengthy explanation posts disguised as one), but I didn't want to leave you guys hanging for too long :)
And, because of this, I will be holding 3 blog giveaways very son: one will be a bookshelf clearing giveaway, another will be a graduation giveaway, and one will be my birthday giveaway- which will probably be the biggest one!
So see you guys around, and PLEASE catch me up on some major bookish news! The only one I've been able to keep up with is the Shadowhunters' TV casting, and that's only because I'm a big Dominic Sherwood fan and I've been on Cassie's tumblr eagerly waiting for some TSA spoilers!
