I have, surprisingly, not done very much in the way of reading, writing reviews, blogging, answering emails, and commenting in the past couple of weeks. Instead, I have been:
- gchatting with old and new friends
- getting to know my summer apartment-mates
- cooking kickass meals
- playing piano
- finding great new music to download and listen to
- appreciating other people's talents
- writing my WIP
- going through runs in the woods at my school
...and so on. In other words, I feel, oddly enough, very much alive. I have had ups and downs in terms of mood, but I have also made lasting memories, experienced new things, and made myself happy. This kind of activity and simultaneous calm is something I do not remember having known for a long time.
I always say that it's okay if you don't want to do something because you're not feeling in the mood for it: it doesn't make you a worse person as a result. So I WILL be back, and will start communicating more online, but in the meantime you'll have to mind just my pre-scheduled reviews, weekly memes, giveaway posts, and lack of more active presence. Sorry; I hope that's okay!
