I did not intend to take a break as it were. At the end of the day, I’m glad I did. It has really done me well. I’ve been home for three days now. I was kind of in the background. For one, I was trying to finish a book. I just finished it a bit earlier today. For two, a bunch of people at the convention I went to tested positive for covid. Including my partner. So far, I haven’t shown any symptoms. Both tests I took came up negative. I’m still going to go in quarantine mode for the next two weeks to be on the safe side.
This time off has helped me reflect on myself so much. I think getting out of the house and away for a bit has helped as well. Also, I was at a book convention, so I also had some amazing retail therapy. As I do every year. I actually didn’t buy as much this year as I normally did. I wasn’t as impulsive. Here’s a video of my haul:
I do realize there’s still a lot there. My mom decided to gift me some books as well. I’m so thankful for her! I did do something really awesome (to me) when I got home. I sat down and made a list of blogs I want to write and a list of blogs I should write here soon. Here’s the blog topics I’ll be including in my blog currently:
TV Show Reviews (By the Season)
Any book-related topic I am inspired by
Before the book speculations/guesses
I’m pretty sure this list will be added to and edited to a lot as my blog goes on from here. Which is completely fine. The biggest thing I’m trying to do is get out of the rut of routine that I threw myself in. I want my blog to feel more authentic. More me. I’ll still do a post every day, but it will be randomly selected from either something above or anything that strikes my fancy. Some days, there might be more than one blog. It all depends. I do have an author interview coming soon. I sent her over questions and some things I’d like her to send back today. I’m really excited!
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to read this. I sincerely hope that you enjoy the changes that you see here in the future.
