Life Update

Hiya everyone! I know I haven’t been around for a while now. I don’t know if it was the depression, burnout or just life in general getting me down but I lost interest in both blogging and Instagram. I was kind of at a loss for inspiration and motivation and I kept asking myself, why bother? What’s the point of it all?

And the answer? I chose this. I chose to blog and to post on Instagram. Maybe there’s no point but it was my choice. It still is. That was a relief for me, because if I am not doing all these things what else would I be doing with myself? I’m going to try a different perspective to it all – to my life, to doing the things I want to do, to try to stay interested in things that bring me pleasure.

You see, with the apathy, it’s hard at times to drum up any enthusiasm. But I’m thinking I’m going to try and go through the motions till it sticks. Here’s to hoping it sticks.

I’ve been cross-stitching again and that helps.


Blogging Update

I’m abolishing my “Whatcha Doin’ Wednesday” post for now. But if it works for you, you can continue it. I might come up with another blog meme for mental health – I’m thinking about it – we’ll see how it goes.

So I guess this means… I’m back!



I'm a die-hard bibliophile and I'm also an introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami.

  1. I know exactly what you mean! Blogging is time consuming, and it’s so important to mental health to focus our time on the things that bring us joy. I’m trying to reduce the burnout by changing my expectations, even if that means posting infrequently. Good luck on your journey!
