Why Things Will be Getting a Bit Quiet Here for a While...

January is always the month for starting afresh and although I never make resolutions (it's too much pressure trying to stick to them and I end up feeling miserable), I decided to make a few for 2016. I'm not going to list them all here, mostly because they're just the normal "be healthier, lose weight, get fit" type of resolutions. But the main resolution is for me to finish my PhD this year, and I plan on achieving this no matter what. That means that certain sacrifices have to be made, and my regular blogging schedule is unfortunately one of them. I love blogging and interacting with my readers, but it's time for me to get my priorities straight. My work contract expires in a few months (too few!) and I need to hand in my thesis before then. 

So things are going to get a little quiet on the blog and I hope that you understand why. I will still blog occasionally, but I won't be posting as regularly as I usually do. As I said, this will only be for a couple of months. Don't fret, I'll be back to my proper blogging schedule soon!

Until next time!

  1. Good luck! I also have to finish up in a few months and submit my thesis midway in the 2nd semester so blogging is taking a sidestep for me as well

    1. I have even less time than that, eeeek! I'm currently too frazzled to even think of blogging regularly. Good luck with your thesis writing and keep me posted! Thanks for commenting, Laura!

  2. I'm nowhere near my PHD yet, so I'm not going to lie and say I know how it is. I do, though, have a very very close family member who just finished hers after (I think) 4 or 5 years working on it full time. I know that the constant support from her family and friends meant so much, so I'm here to wish you the same. I hope you have someone who truly understands, and that you'll appreciate and make use of that someone regularly :-) blessings to you xx

    1. Thank you for the lovely message, it means a lot to me! Yes I have an amazing husband, mother, friends, and mentor who are all routing for me to finish! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. x
