[dropcap]S[/dropcap]o I’m sitting in one of Durham’s many cafés and my laptop is on about 30% battery so hopefully I’ll get this all done and posted before it dies and I have to go home. I’ve just handed in an essay that counts for 50% of a module, which means that I’ve actually finished some of my last year of university. 20% of my final year is done and dusted. Finished.

It was a bloody hard essay. Interesting but really bloody hard. I’m glad it’s done, but it probably won’t mark especially well. Oh well. Just another essay and a presentation to go this term (all of seven days). Then I hit the dissertation hard.

As you’ve probably noticed, I haven’t been blogging very much at all. I’m not sure why.

I’m not sure whether its a time thing (I do definitely have time), or whether I’m just lazy (could be that). I think the main reason is that I just don’t think I have anything to say at the moment.

I’ve been massively off my game. My content has dropped, my photo quality has dropped, my general zeal has dropped. My instagram has suffered, despite continuing to grow in follower numbers, and I’ve barely touched twitter. The whole life online thing just hasn’t happened in a long time.

It’s weird thinking that a year ago I was all about this. I was in my flat in Paris writing posts about everything and anything, travelling Europe and generally having a blast. I’d hit my stride and was smashing life. Now, I’m exhausted from being back at uni, in the library ’til midnight, scraping deadlines and generally just having a life.

I’m not sure where this post is going. Nightmare.

Basically I think it’s just a long list of apologies and excuses for being so absent over the last few weeks/months.

With the Easter holidays coming up I might be able to set up a backlog of posts again, like I did this term. That way I can get through the dissertation and exams, and then carry on myself after it’s all over. Fingers crossed.

  • You definitely don’t need to apologise or feel under pressure to blog. I’m in my third year too and I totally understand how you feel. There’s no point forcing blogging because you won’t enjoy it, and to be honest university and you being able to relax and have a life is more important right now. Everyone will still be here when you get back 🙂

    I know how you feel, ever since the year started and I began studying for exams it feels as though I don’t have much to write about. There are also somethings changing in my life and that has put so much of my life on hold until I figure it out. Just hang tight and soon you will be out of this rut. Best of luck on your essay!

I really hope that you pass with flying colours and even if you don’t then you have passed that is more enough. I have been reading your blog for a long time now and it continues to be absolutely wonderful no matter what so you know what hun ‘you do you’ and we will all be waiting for you when YOU are ready xxx Sending big hugs xxx

    You don’t need to apologise! Uni is tough – especially final year, with the dissertation and all that pressure. Just focus on what’s important right now, your blog (and life online) will be waiting for you when it’s over! x http://www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

    Yes girl, I absolutely understand how you feel. I completely took a break from my blog when I was in 3rd year, every little bit of energy I could muster went towards my dissertation and the last thing I thought about way creating lil nuggets of content for my blog. Don’t feel the pressure as blogging should be something that relaxes and soothes you. Massive good luck with the rest of the term gal! I miss uni so much, even 3rd year haha! Immy x
