"Summer's lease hath all too short a date." (Will Shakespeare)

Happy Labor Day!

I know you're probably really busy, what with getting ready to go back to school/work, having last minute BBQs, and dashing to the beach one last time. It's stressful, it's crazy, and the only thing that keeps me sane this time of the year (and until summer comes again) is escaping into a book. I read anytime and everywhere, including, but not limited to, on the bus, in between classes, in the bathtub, at meals, etc.

(You know, rereading that sentence, I realized that made me sound incredibly antisocial. I do have friends, I swear! Real ones, too!)

To make time for the things I love, I have to grab it whenever I can. I mean, I actually like school a lot, but it takes up time when I could be writing. But I'm taking Creative Writing as my elective in the spring and I'm very, very excited about that. And when I have play rehearsal, I can bring a book backstage while I'm waiting for my cue. I just have to be careful not to become too immersed in the story and then realize that I was supposed to be on stage fifteen minutes ago. (Seventh grade, Beauty and the Beast, that happened.) Also, I'm on my school's newspaper staff and part of our literary magazine, so I get to write there, too. Oh, and while I do those things, I get to make friends with the same interests.

The point is, just because life is hectic, doesn't mean you have to give up you time. You just have to be creative and budget what little time you have. Which is why I'm no longer going to posting so sporadically. Rather, to make sure I keep up with blogging (because I do really love doing this), I'm setting aside Mondays as my blogging day. That's a tentative schedule, because I'm not sure what my schedule looks like yet, but whether it's Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Urgdays, I'm going to post once a week on a certain day.

What do you do to fit in what you love? What are the strangest places you've ever read?

Till next Monday! xoxoxo

  1. When I first started book blogging I was all speratic with my posts too but then I started making a schedule of what days did I know I would be free to post since then I've been posting reviews on mondays and thursdays and while it isn't the best plan for thursdays anymore I still try to post on thursdays even if I'm really tired

    Also lately I've been holding back on posting reviews right after I read the book and while that has caused build up and possible confession of when I originally read the book it helps a great deal because now I can read and not worry about when I get it done exactly since I have at the moment enough reviews to last me at least two months if I play my cards right
