Hey y’all! I know I’ve been pretty MIA for over a month now. Everything that’s been going on with Covid-19 has honestly been stressing me out. My school’s campus is shut down and I’m working from home. All my classes are online and that’s been a tough transition. It hasn’t been great for my mental health and I was getting a lot of headaches that first week from staring at a screen all day. I lost my motivation for a while and I would find myself logging into WordPress and exiting right out because I felt like I just couldn’t write anything.
That being said, I’ve started to get a rhythm going now. Like I’ve said before when I take these unexpected breaks, I love writing but life has a habit of getting in the way. I wish I’d gotten those Top 5 Tuesdays done before this started but, se la vie.
The pageant I’d mentioned in our last catching up session was cancelled. It was supposed to be on April 4th. We had a fun photo shoot the month before things went south and I posted those pictures to Twitter if you want to check them out below.
Finals are coming up pretty soon and most of my classes are asking for papers instead of exams. Oh, the life of an English major. So if I do disappear from the blogosphere again, just know that I’m fervently writing 7 page essays.
I’ve been reading for my classes. The stories we’ve been reading for Science Fiction have truly been out of this world (no, literally). The same can be said for one of our Literature and Environment reads. I’ve been updating my Goodreads page but I haven’t written a full review in what seems like forever.
Sidenote: When did WordPress update it’s post editor? Does it look super different, or have I just been gone for too long?
Okay, this is starting to sound depressing *throws confetti in the air* That’s better.
