What’s Been Going On?
If you haven’t noticed, In Wonderland has been pretty scarce as of recently. I have been in a pretty big life slump as of late. I’m dealing with a lot of stress from my actual job, which has gotten me in this really bad slump/depressive state. My reading and writing has been severely lacking because of my hatred for this job. A while ago, I signed up for the Make Me Read It Readathon which happened last week and guess what? I haven’t picked up a book to read in the past few weeks. As much as I love to read, this slump I am in just doesn’t want me to read. And not reading is bringing my mood down even more.
Another reason for this life slump of mine is that we are always busy. Every weekend for the past 4.5 months we have had something going on that we needed to go to. I think I’ve had 1 weekend to myself TOTAL in the past 4.5 months. Starting in August, we’re finally going to be slowing down. I will have a few events like my best friend’s baby shower. My other best friends wedding. And a cousin’s wedding. But other than that… we’re not completely booked solid weekend after weekend like we have been since before OUR wedding in April.
So, Stephanie…What Are You Gonna Do About It?
Well, I’m gonna try and force myself out of this slump. Obviously I can’t just quit my job because that’s my only source of income. But I have been searching for other jobs and have actually applied for some of them. Will I get them? Who knows, but at least I’m trying. What I really want to do with my life is to be a full time writer. But I can’t even try to get anything published or get represented until I have a full manuscript, which I just don’t have yet.
In August, I’m going to be participating in ARC August. So, hopefully that will help my reading progress. I’m also hoping that with the lack of life events happening starting in August, I’ll have so much more “me” time to where I can start to enjoy things I love again.
What About Your Cobloggers?
Well, I know that our readers see the majority of the posts are conducted by me and Lizzie. And Lizzie, I know has been swamped with her job. Since it’s summer and her hours got changed. As for the rest of the cobloggers… I’m not really sure what’s going on with them. Hence the lack of posts in the past few months from them. So, what’s gonna happen.. I don’t know. But I do know that I want to get back to the blogosphere. So, there may be some changes in the near future.
Let’s Talk About It, Shall We?
Have you guys ever been in a life slump? I know most of us get into a reading slump here and there. That’s expected. But an actual life slump… ugh, it’s bad. Tell me how you’ve gotten past any of your slumps. Whether they be reading, blogging, or life, etc. What should I try to help get out of this funk? Hope all of you are doing well and cannot wait to get back to blogging and reading all of your comments and posts! <3
