Well. It’s been a while, and 2019 seems to have come around and smacked me in the face.
I reflect on 2018 as a really tough year. I was coming to the final months of finishing my Open University Degree, and things in my personal life and the added stress of university, made me give up my bookseller job and move back home to Kent. I wasn’t initially unhappy with this, but it was certainly the best thing for me to do at the time.
2018 wasn’t all doom and gloom because of this however; I got to travel to Italy for my best friends wedding, me and Sam celebrated two years together, and I had fun at the theatre, and I guess having the time to think about my future was healthy during the period of unemployment. I now know what I want in life, and I guess the biggest thing is to be happy. As long as I’m happy I don’t think I should pressure myself to do things that I might not be ready for yet.
So what about this blog? Well I want to make more of an effort to keep up with it this year; she says when January is almost over with! I want to write more of my book reviews, I want to talk about life in general. I want this to be the space I had always set it out to be, a space where I can come to when I need to be myself. Whether it’s a full blown rant, something creative, a splurge of photos I love, or just books I’m enjoying at the moment. Primarily of course this is a book blog and it will remain so, but I want to just do what feels right.
To those who have stuck around, thank you.
