I realise that a year’s absence from the blog isn’t a trifling matter, but my sole excuse is life got too hectic for me to follow through. I got accepted to and began my Master’s degree in Comparative Literature at the University of Edinburgh last September and this past year has been truly rewarding but also incredibly stressful for a variety of reasons.
My pleasure-reading rate dramatically decreased this year and I found myself not only unable to write new and interesting posts for the blog but also at a loss at whether infrequent updates were even better than no updates at all. In the end, I ended up not finishing any of my drafts, thinking that I would feel it when the time to write again was there.
Now, having finished all my obligations related to my Master’s, waiting for my dissertation results and fervently looking for a job, I’m trying to overcome my reading slump and what better way to do this than return to blogging. Most likely, my return to blogging will initially move slowly, since I haven’t been reading enough to create daily posts, but I aspire to post at least once a week.
I’m very happy to finally be back here and I can’t wait to see what you’ve all been up to 🙂
