Blogtober Broke Me…

Over October, I challenged myself to post once a day, every day. And, surprisingly, I succeeded! If you’ve just started reading this blog, you might laugh. Me, the person who’s writing their second post in the last two weeks, posting every day? I know, I want to laugh too. 

I don’t know exactly if that’s what’s making me avoid posting. And yes, I am avoiding it, I could be using my free time a lot better! My NaNo project is going well (oh look, a link to the only other post I’ve written recently), and I guess I’ve been spending all my time writing a novel instead of keeping up a blog. The problem, though, is that I’ve been ahead

Maybe my brain is too full?

of my expected word count for ages, so why didn’t I use that time to blog? I’m behind now, while writing this post, which almost makes it worse… 

Maybe it’s not NaNo, maybe it’s study? I’m in the middle of exams at the moment, and even though I should be doing a lot more study than I am, maybe the stress in the back of my head is stopping me from blogging. My brain won’t let me have fun, because I should be studying, right? Again, though, NaNo is still happening, so my brain obviously doesn’t care THAT much. 

Appreciate that this post exists, though. This definitely isn’t a promise to post more often, it’s just me acknowledging that I am alive, despite how it might look. I will try though, just don’t get your hopes up! 

I’m also behind on blog-hopping, so link me to your latest posts, and I’ll come say hi! I would love to know what you’ve all been up to



I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!
