I can’t believe I am actually here writing things for you all to see. To be honest, I feel like I haven’t written anything for so long and it’s good to finally be back to doing what I love.
I didn’t really announce that I was going on a break. Well, I didn’t really know what I was doing. I am great at saying I am doing things and then not sticking to it. Dieting, my degree, counselling. I thought if I announced something, I would feel stupid going back on myself, so I just thought i’d leave it and feel no pressure.
The reason I decided to take some time off is because I really felt my mental health suffering from trying to juggle so many things at once.
I fell out of love with blogging, I started my degree and was also in the midst of adjusting to life with two kids.
What has changed?
Not much. Same old me. Still only two kids, thankfully.
I deferred my degree – I switched from Criminology to Law and won’t be starting until October 2019 so I now have a lot more breathing room which is a relief. I feel a bit of a failure for giving up so soon but I decided I wanted to do something that would allow me more options and I think Law opens way more doors. It still allows me to go into the criminal justice field though, which is where I inevitably want to be. It was too late to restart in February so I am having to wait an age to begin all over again, and I lose all my marks from the first assessments I submitted before Christmas, but hopefully I won’t regret the switch.
I’m also thinking of introducing some true crime blog posts on here, which a lot of people told me on Twitter they would read.
I want to re-brand so I am not just a ‘mum blog’ anymore. I do feel restricted and that really doesn’t help when it comes to me writing certain things. Don’t get me wrong, I love to talk about my kids, but there’s so much more that interests me too.
I want to work hard on expanding my social media platforms. I want to allow you all to see more of me as a mum and a person, and not just see my children all the time.
Hopefully exciting things will happen this year.
Anyway, that’s all I have to say for now but I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. We had an amazing few days as a new family of four and although it was tiring it definitely was perfect.
