Please Excuse My Absence

I just wanted to shoot you guys a little note.  I’m still here, I’m still reading and writing and watching movies related to YA.

But my stress feels like it’s through the roof right now and at the moment, this blog is just one more thing on my plate, one more deadline hanging over my head.

I promise I will be back, once I can calm down.  I’ve had an excess of grading lately, a lot going on at school, the stress of yet another school shooting on my mind and listening to people who don’t understand talk about what is or isn’t the problem, the frustration of a website I rely on daily failing at every turn, and other general life issues.

The only two things that seem to successfully calm me down are reading and singing.

A lot of the time right now, I can only maintain my sanity if I avoid watching the news and if I stay off the internet.  So it’s not that I don’t love you lovely people (because I do), but I have to take care of myself at the moment.

Thank you for understanding.

    • Thank you. I spent the day with family today to decompress and that helped a lot. I’m hoping I’ll be up to creating a few posts tomorrow. I just need to stay off social media, I think. That’s part of the problem.
