This is going to be slightly more personal than I have begun to want for this blog. In fact, it’s probably better-suited to my personal outlet (cedarbooks.tumblr.com), but since it’s affecting the work that I’m putting up on B&C I thought it might be better to be said here, once.
My original plan was to update this every 3-4 days, with at least some tiny thing. However, since finding one part-time job, and then an internship, and taking on a small volunteer commitment as a part of another project, I have found my free time to work on self-driven projects increasingly waning. I’ve also, due to the irregularity of my weekly schedule and the time-suck that is richocheting between two different workplaces, been running myself to the ground in terms of my mental and physical health.
I love writing, and I have loved doing this blog, but over the past month and a half I’ve found the need to take the time to balance myself mentally and physically in order to get back to a stable and healthy place. I’m trying a few new things to do this. And honestly, I just read over that last paragraph or two and realized that just reading it makes my life sound much worse than it actually is. I’m not quite fine, but I’m working on getting there. In the larger scheme of things, this is not the worst thing that could happen to me.
The long & short of this is that I’m going to scale back on updating. Once a week, probably at most, for the next little while. My internship ends in mid-November (hopefully), so at the very latest I will return to normal updates then.
