tl;dr I’m going on hiatus until mid-December to focus on school and other personal commitments. Posts have been scheduled for once a week; I might sporadically bloghop if I have time, but I won’t be replying to comments or checking bookish social media. You can still contact me, though I can’t promise I’ll reply promptly.
As I mentioned in my August in review post, this will be my first semester as a professional pharmacy student (program-wise, it’s comparable to med school; I’ve finished two years of undergraduate classes, and after four more years I should have a PharmD degree). It’ll definitely be an adjustment in terms of courseload and academic rigor; I also have leadership roles in student organizations as well as possibly working part-time. Additionally, I’ve made the transition to living off-campus and therefore have to figure out how to do adult things like grocery shopping and meal planning.
So all this to say, I know that I’ll have a lot going on and school has to be my priority for the foreseeable future.
Over my short summer break I’ve been hard at work prewriting posts, so there’ll still be new content here while I’m gone! Since most people seem to bloghop on the weekends, I’ve scheduled them for Fridays; they’ll be automatically cross-linked on Twitter as usual, but I most likely won’t actually be active on blog-related social media, besides Goodreads.
While I’m on hiatus I won’t be bloghopping consistently, or maybe at all. Though if we’re friends — y’all know who you are — you should absolutely feel free to DM me links to posts you’re particularly proud of, or that you think I’d be interested in! Hopefully it goes without saying that I won’t be taking review requests or working on guest / collab posts in the meantime.
Still, I’m not totally logging off the Internet! (That would be kind of hard in this day and age, especially considering I need it for class and life stuff.
Hey Siri, how do you cook rice on the stove?) If you want to chat about anything, I’ll still be checking Discord and my blog email occasionally; it just might take me a while to get back to you.
If any of you have tips and resources from being on hiatus (how you redirect blogging inspiration / creative energy, getting back into the flow afterwards, etc.), or for studying / adulting in general, I’d really appreciate them. Thank you all for your support and encouragement so far!
