Random Ranting: When to Slow Down



For months I read, reviewed at least twice a week, worked, tutored, and generally began a process of running myself into the ground. However, there was a light at the end of the tunnel, the summer. a time when everything could slow down and I could relax and focus. Yea, I had dreams. This summer has been anything but relaxing. I’ve spent the last several weeks traveling, the weeks before that tutoring, and as school looms ahead I feel the weeks to prepare for the new school year getting smaller and smaller.

So what’s the purpose of this rant? Well, the purpose is to reaffirm that sometime’s it’s okay to step back and take a break. I’m sure everyone has noticed a decline in reviews the last few weeks and that’s due to a lack of time. Trying to do it all has lead to crashing and crashing hard. This past weekend I finished two books, but I also spent 16 hours sleeping.

While I want to continue blogging, I know there are times when it has to be a lesser priority in my life. Posting 4-5 times a week and staying on top of my other priorities can be exhausting and right now I would rather post fewer reviews, take care of myself, prepare for the new year, and continue to enjoy the remainder of my summer. Hence, the point of this post. If you don’t hear from me weekly, fret not. I’m reading and I’ll always be back for review. 🙂
