A ‘kind of’ hiatus…

Hi guys! Just a little update post, I did a post on Wednesday but that was prewritten a few days earlier, and I have nothing scheduled for the foreseeable future…

So, as you may know, I am currently studying to get some qualifications in accountancy. This course spans out over just under 3.5 years and by the third year it gets pretty heavy. 

I am doing this while working full time, with one afternoon a week off to attend college. 

I had been coping fine working full time, studying and blogging since I started this blog in… May (June?) of this year, but my last exam really hit me like a ton of bricks. 

I was tired 24/7, trying to keep up blogtober (durbrain moment on my behalf) along with studying for an exam (which only had 6 weeks of 4 hour lessons) and working full time. This was all while, of course, trying to fit in some ‘me’ time to prevent myself getting tooooo burnt out. It didn’t work. After I finished that exam I spent about 4 days sleeping whenever time permitted. 

I also stopped enjoying writing any blog posts, i felt my writing was sloppy and messy and my pictures lackluster. 

This last week I’ve been really poorly (bad case of flu of some sort, 3/4 of the way to being fully mended now thank god!!) and have found myself so much happier and relaxed without having to think about writing a blog post. 

That is why I’m having a small break. 

My FINAL exam is in the beginning of December – after that I will be done (everyone please touch wood)!!! This exam is prettttty heavy duty, with a lot of people failing and comparing to chartered exams but with 70% needed to pass (acca generally only 50% I think) lol. 

I will still be bumbling around on twitter and keeping up with everybody else’s posts, so i won’t be completely disappearing.

I am also still going to be trying to lose weight (currently 96.5kg, which is about 4lbs down……)

If any of you fancy a chat, please don’t hesitate to private message me on twitter or whatever, I’m always about… just a lot of short periods of time 😉

Thank you guys! See you in about a month!!!!
