I’m Freeeeeeeeee!!! *Waves Hands Energetically.*
I felt like it was about time I did another one of these update rambly post thingies. As of last week I handed in the last of my coursework, grumbled and complained through torturous exams (in my head of course, or I would have been disqualified) and packed up the last of my things and headed for home. My second year of university is officially over and I can for the most part, breathe a sigh of relief! At least until I get my results or start having to think about my dissertation (gulp).
I’m currently in denial.
To say work has been full on the last few months would be an understatement, but as a reward I now have a long, hopefully hot summer of reading and home comforts ahead. Woohoo! Most importantly, my cat will no longer have to make complex, life changing decisions without me like whether to go for the fish or chicken chunks in jelly.
I know, she will be so relieved.
After so many months of having one assignment after the other with little respite in between it actually feels a bit weird to have free time. It’s like I have this sense of guilt for sitting around reading and watching TV! I don’t think it’s all quite sunk in yet, I feel like I’ve been tricked by nargles or something.
One thing I am truly pleased about is my ability to put my heart back into this blog. It has been a struggle for me to get posts out…since January really. Although I was determined to keep up with blogging my mind has mostly been elsewhere, preoccupied by statistics and lab reports upon lab reports. The book review and meme posts have remained, but I have missed writing discussion posts and book hauls! Surprisingly, I have really missed reading classics too! I kind of feel a bit as if I’ve lost my blogging mojo. My writing, to me at least, has felt disorganized and more ramblely than even my normal over ramblely self and the words haven’t been flowing from my fingertips quite as easily. I think that was naturally, reflecting my state of mind. I’m looking forward to having free reign of my little space of the internet again and getting back in the swing of things with full on bookish enthusiasm! 🙂 So here’s a little peek at what could be coming up in the near future:
- Thoughts on the hype monster that is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
- The Influential Book Tag.
- Long overdue opinions on Divergent, Catching Fire and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
- Book Hauls! (Seriously, there’s so many books I need to tell you about that I may have to do it in parts *claps hands excitedly.*)
- A post on current book cover trends.
- Thoughts on A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin.
- A discussion about internet spoilers.
Huzzar! I’m getting excited just thinking about the prospect of writing each one of these. So much fun to be had. 🙂
But first, I must nap.

P.S. A quick word on the banner, for a while I have been looking for a way to streamline my personal posts and clearly separate them from my bookish ones. I also hate writing posts with no images attached, we are after all, visual creatures and I often have a lack relevant images for these kinds of posts. A fun little banner seemed like the perfect way to fix this. Why the dragons you ask? They are my favourite mythical creatures and sadly, my everyday life has a severe lack of them. 😛 I would be grateful if you could give me some anonymous feedback on the idea as your thoughts, as always, are very important to me!
