Sometimes Life Gets In The Way

Lets start this off with a quick apology, the past few months I’ve been super slack with blogging and I’ve been dying to get back into it. I’m in my final year of high school and it’s safe to say it gets pretty stressful, even though I absolutely love blogging I did prioritise my school work because there’s nothing worse than getting a test back only to see that you’ve failed. Today I just wanted to sit down and catch you up on what I’ve been up to, it felt wrong to be away for so long and then come back with a random post and no explanation.

Now to be fair I did post a few times but what I was writing felt rushed and a bit forced, I didn’t post anything I wasn’t happy with but I know I could’ve put more effort in. I love being able to relax and write and take photos, it’s what I love doing and it’s why I’ve been blogging now for quite a while (coming close to a year?!), but other than running my personal blog I adore reading other bloggers posts and connecting with them on other platforms, lately I’ve become so overwhelmed with school and life that I’ve stopped chatting with other bloggers as much. The blogging community is so open and welcoming which is a big reason why I love blogging so much, however over the past few months I feel as though  I’ve been losing touch with everyone. To stop this I’ve been making sure that even when I’m stressed to take a few minutes out of my day to read some bloggers new posts and go through my instagram feed and like some photos, already I feel more connected again and I’m so happy to be back.

It was my last day of term 1 on friday and thank the lord for the holidays!! I desperately need some time to relax and recuperate. So much happened this term it actually blows my mind, everything in my life did a complete 180 and now it’s like I’m on a roller coaster (so cliche but you get where I’m going). It’s actually crazy to look back on the amount that happened to do with boys, friends, family and school!! I won’t get into all the details as this post would be as long as a novel but it was pretty intense and nothing is resolved yet which is fab… Not. The drama about friends has put me in a really tough situation as I really want to stand up for my friends who are being targeted by the issue but I know that I need to stay out of it, trust me I’ve had my fair share of being in the middle of the drama and it’s no fun. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how it all pans out, if you have any advice then do leave it below.

Onto another issue I’ve always had, my attention span, it’s the same if not worse than a goldfish and this doesn’t help when it comes to studying. This term I definitely had to make some adjustments to ensure that my grades didnt suffer, it took me a while to get used to the fast pace and heavy workload of year 12 but luckily I made it through. This time last week I was sitting at my desk struggling to write a 2000 word religion essay on Vatican II, aghh I don’t even want to think about it. I’m going to quickly rant for a sec, basically we had to write an essay on a topic they never taught us and I had no clue what Vatican II even was, everyone was confused and frustrated but we all got through it. I wrote 500 words over the limit but honestly it was practically impossible to stay under while not missing out any key details. Oh well rant over haha, just needed to share that. I felt so free when I finally submitted it and now I never have to think about it again… Until exams ugh.

If you read my post about my room inspiration and my plans to change it, nothing had happened, absolutely nothing and it’s so frustrating because all I want to do it redecorate and make my room feel more like me again but I was just too busy to do anything to it yet, hopefully these holidays I’ll paint my wall and add some pictures. I feel like thats all I have to say, nothing else has really been happening, that I can talk about on the internet at least. I hope you’re all having a fab day and I will for sure see you very soon with a new post.

    Life can really be so hectic! My blog has also suffered because of school but now that it’s the holidays, I’m able to put more effort into it.
    I honestly hate school drama and I’ve had my fair share of them. It’s best to stay out of it as much as possible even if you want to help your friends. It’s tough but I guess that’s school😂
    Glad your back to blogging! And don’t ever feel like you have to blog. It’s fine to take a break when there is so much going on. Have a great day xxx
