After A Long Hiatus

Well! It has certainly been a long time since I have sat down to write for this blog (A WHOLE YEAR!). This last year has been crazy, what with finishing up my last year of college, working three jobs, going to hockey games all over the place, enjoying time with my friends and finally graduating from the most amazing school with two degrees and beginning my transition into the real world. 
I took an unexpected hiatus a year ago to enjoy my last year at college, a decision I do not regret. However, during that time, I did miss blogging. While my schedule was extremely busy, I continued to read tons of great books, but just did not have the time to sit down and write reviews for that. I really missed the YA community and bloggers who I had developed relationships with over the years. It is time for me to get back to that. 
Now that school is out (forever), I’m finally gaining back a lot of free time that I lost. No more homework, no more classes, and a lot less stress is becoming the norm. Sure, I have a full-time job now, but that frees up a lot more time for me to return back to blogging. 

This post is more for me, expressing me desire to get back to writing reviews and get back to the wonderful YA blogging community that I have had to step away from. This is a promise to myself, that I will return back to a task that I really enjoyed. I missed writing reviews and talking about my favorite books with others last year, and I cannot wait to get back into the game. So here’s to a new beginnings and fresh start for me. I can’t wait! 

I’m Back!

After a very, very long and unexpected hiatus, I have returned back to my blog! Now that is summer (or at least it’s summer for me cause school’s out) I have time to finally get back to something I really enjoy and have been away from for far too long. After a crazy busy junior year at Boston University, and a very crazy last month here for Boston, I’m back now and hoping to rejuvenate this blog with some life.

It is going to take some work and effort to get back in the habit of blogging, but it’s something I’m willing to do. This summer I have a lot of free time outside my internship and work and I am making a promise to myself to use that free time to get back to blogging. I know it is going to be slow going at first, what with having to get back in the habit of doing things, but I must stick with it. So here is to kicking some life back into this blog. Wooo!

Blogging Resolutions

It’s a New Year. As always with a New Year you get a new start. I’m not much for coming up with New Year’s resolutions, probably because not much changes year from year, but I did set some blogging resolutions for 2012.

If you couldn’t tell, I’ve been a bit slacking on the blog since around November. The last two months of school were insane and I had little time to devote to anything besides school, sleep, and work. Personal issues have also gotten in the way as well.

My main resolution for 2012 is to blog more. I really love blogging and I’m sad that I’ve fallen so far behind. I have a ton of books that I need to review and I plan on getting on that ASAP. Even during the school I want to balance my school work and personal life so that I can find time to blog. I want to try to have a review a week up on the blog, but I know that might just sometimes be impossible. I will try to read as much as possible, but I have a ton of books for my classes (i’m taking 3 english class, and have 12 books for just one class!) but will try to read for fun as well. I will try to schedule posts in advanced when I have time instead of just putting it off to the last minute. I will be more active on twitter! I virtually abandoned twitter during the school year last year and will try to catch.

I want to be a better blogger and I want to actually have time to blog because I really do enjoy it. Starting tomorrow, I’m going to really start devoting more time to my blog, especially since school starts soon and I want to get ahead. But basically, I just want to BLOG more in 2012.
