Hello lovely people of the internet and loyal followers!
Both Marianne and me are extremely sorry for our lack of participation both on our blog and the blogging community. We start college next week and we are trying to read as much as we can and schedule a lot of things as well.
I’m officially a freshmen! How dreaded it is to be at the bottom of the food chain of college… I have no idea how to even function once I start classes next Tuesday. I am both excited and terrified of all the possibilities.
This last summer has been a hectic one even though I expected it to be relatively calm. Rest is only for the dead, it seems. July was a very stressful month having to babysit my nephew at least 12 hours a day, which left me with barely any energy to make up a single sentence. I managed to do some reviews on the occasions he behaved and let me work. I wonder how mommies all over the world can do all they do (YOU GO, MOMS!). I felt horribly bad for not replying to all your comments or blog posts, even though I would read some from my phone. Life has gotten in the way of my plans far too much.
There are so many very, very hard things that come once you get into a college! Everyone used to say that the hardest part was to get in. I felt like that was the easiest. And what I still have to do once classes start…
Anyone out there that is still in high school and wants it to be over already. Please, enjoy it as much as you can because you will miss it very much once you start the whole college adaptation. Things used to be so simple. However, I look very forward to all my classes and am very happy that I’ll be studying my favorite subject and major, ENGLISH! All this, as stressful as it has been, it’s been a way of learning as well. We never cease to learn from the things that happen to us.
I am embracing this new chapter (how cliche) of my life, and I hope I can still do what I love most, which is read and write and babble about books in the blog and Instagram. Formal reviews have me in a slump, so I’ll just rely mostly on word vomiting all about my reading experience and see where that takes me. Life can become boring if you stick to straight lines.
Purpose of this post? Just babble, something I really love. And let you know that we have not abandoned the blog and don’t plan on it! We’ve both met amazing people from all over like Australia, Philippines, USA, Dominican Republic, and even our own island! Marianne and I have maintained connections with some through Instagram through our bookstagrams that has us abandoning the blog for days. Send your username so that we can share pictures!
Thank you all for your support, and I hope to get back on track soon to discuss more books worth swooning for and others that just make you cringe too. Happy reading!
