HI! HELLO! I AM BACK AND I’M NOT DEAD!! I MISSED YOU GUYS! IT FEELS LIKE IT HAS BEEN FOREVER!

It has been a hot minute since I sat down and actually wrote something for myself. The last time I updated this site was back at the beginning of April which depresses me as I didn’t realise how long I had been neglecting my blog for up until writing this. I don’t know how many of you noticed my absence on here and my social media has been a sporadic mess these past few months but I am here to just talk about what exactly has been going on.

To start off this rambling update, I am currently days away from finishing my second year of university! I’m so close to becoming a third year student now and that fact is crazy to me. I have been stressing a lot these past few months as I have had some hefty projects to work on. One of the biggest projects included my work experience in which I build my own website (y’all can check it out here if you haven’t already). The project ended up with my toddling out into the world to do a face to face interview with a Japanese indie idol. It was a surreal experience and one which I will never forget. Thinking about it still makes me a bit giddy. I have also been working on other heavy duty projects such as making a 16-page magazine as well as doing a research project. Suffice to say, my head is spinning from all the writing I have been doing in these past few months. I’d like to bet I’ve written over 30,000 words within the past two months or so and that on top of various mental breakdowns from stress has taken its toll. That is why I basically disappeared from the blogosphere as the workload forced me into taking an unplanned hiatus. I currently have a backlog of ideas just waiting to be written which were planned to be posted months ago.

Education can be very stressful at times

Along with my various university projects I also joined up with some other blog teams to act as a contributor which was an exciting step for me to take. I am officially a contributor for Mai-On.com where I wrote my Banana Fish review as well as RougeShogunate.com which I am hoping to start posting to soon! I have also been working on a couple of music related pieces for this site too which will be coming later this week! I’m excited to share them with you guys as being able to write some of these posts mean a lot to me.

So, what will happening with my nerdy little blog then? Well, as long as everything goes according to plan and I successfully pass the year *fingers crossed* I’ll have more than enough time to start blogging properly again! I’ll officially be finished on Friday in which I have a couple of weeks to get my blogging life together again and write some reviews for you guys! I’m going away to Florida on the 12th June so I’m hopefully going to preschedule some stuff to go out whilst I explore the Sunshine State. After my Florida trip is over I’m going to have all the time in the world to get cracking with my blogging work which I am so excited to sink my teeth back into. So that is where things are at right now. I’m excited to be back to blogging again and start reading lots of other awesome content which I have missed within the past few months!
