So, I’m currently typing this draft on my phone (which I never do) so you will have to pardon my lack of visuals or formatting. I was going to just tweet this announcement but felt like many of you would miss it (especially if you don’t have Twitter). So, here I am.
I’ve gone back and forth with this decision for the past week because I feel like every time I take a little hiatus, I lose some of the connection I have with the community. It can be pretty isolating to take a break, even when it’s what you need.
However, after really thinking on it, I know I need to take the plunge and go on hiatus. It’s not nearly as big of a deal as making a whole announcement post out of it makes it seem, but I just wanted to let you all know before I disappear for a bit. I don’t know how long my hiatus will be- I love this community and miss it greatly when I’m gone for even just a few days, so it could be pretty short. I don’t know yet. I am very busy with my Summer classes at the moment and feeling a little worn down mentally (I am OK, but I know myself well enough to know when I need to take a breather).
Reading and talking about books are an important and joyful hobby to me; I don’t want to ruin that by forcing myself to continue when I’m not feeling up to it.
Thank you for your understanding. I’ll probably be back before you even would’ve noticed that I was gone 💛
