I’m taking a little break from blogging.
I know what you’re probably thinking.
This blog doesn’t get updated regularly and I often just disappear for a few months, so why do I feel the need to announce a break now?
Well, for my own sanity really. Even though I don’t have a regular posting schedule, in my mind I would like one. I am constantly making list of post ideas and when I don’t post, even when I’m too busy to post, I get stressed. So I figure if I make it official, I can hopefully get out of my own head about it.
If you’re still reading, you’re probably wondering why I’m taking a 6 week blogging hiatus. There are several.
On Saturday I’m leaving for a week long vacation in Greece. I’m meeting Tara, my favorite travel partner, in Athens and then we will be spending the next 5 days relaxing on Santorini. You may have noticed the words relaxing and vacation in the two previous sentences. I’m not bringing my laptop and I don’t want to be consumed by thoughts of work I should be doing. I want to drink wine and eat fried cheese and get a tan.
The main reason for this break, though, is the final project for my Master’s degree that is due the end of August. Being the ridiculous procrastinator that I am, I haven’t really done much work yet. (I need the pressure of a deadline that is nearer than 2 months out!) This means that after my trip to Greece I need to spend every waking moment researching, writing, and creating a website so that I can actually compete my degree.
Oh, and I’m also going to Portugal for a week in August. And I’d like to possibly have some time to enjoy my last few weeks in London and say goodbye to my friends when I’m not chained to my computer.
This means that blogging is getting put on the back burner for now. I fly back to the US on August 28 and after a week of road tripping around Michigan, catching up with old friends, and wedding celebrations I’ll be back in Louisville with nothing but time to blog.
I still have so many stories to share from my travels this spring (Scotland, Amsterdam, Cologne, Brussels, HARRY POTTER!) and I’m excited to do so when I have the time to do them justice.
In the meantime, follow me on Instagram for real time updates. And lots of beach and food spam.
Have any tips on what to do (or eat) in Santorini? Or how to concentrate for longer than 5 seconds on writing a dissertation? Or how to code an awesome website from scratch? Leave them in the comments!
