I apologise for not having some blog posts up in the last couple of weeks but I have some good reasons for that and thus this post/update was born.
First off, I really am sorry for not coming out with content. I apologise for that. Now I’m not a student and now that October is around the corner, not being in education is throwing me off a little. I’m throwing myself into my job so I’m able to pay my rent and keep myself afloat each month, therefore, I tend to be tired when I come home from work and just want to rest.
I have been a little down lately and I have no reason why. I just started to sleep in more and just enjoy sleep which isn’t a bad thing but I know that although I feel my mental health is stable, I know in the back of my brain by sleeping in longer and not doing much during my days off, I’m hurting my body a little and my mind.
At this moment in time, my to-do list is as long as my arm. I’m doing Blogmas this year and I’m making sure I’m doing all 31 days. Last year, I put effort into some of the posts and by Day 21, it fell apart. This year, I have started planning and writing early so I’m ready for when December rolls around. I have a lot of cool content for the month and some new posts that haven’t been in Blogmas before. I’m also planning some October/Halloween content that I’m really excited about so keep an eye out for that.
With everything going on in my life, I thought it couldn’t get any busier and stressful but BOY was I wrong! I was searching online for some scriptwriting competitions as that’s what I FINALLY realised what I wanted to do for my career. Writing. Whether that’s here or scriptwriting for TV or Film. Anyway, I was looking for these competitions and I found a program in Los Angeles. LA! My actual dream! So I’m gonna go for it. I know I have a slim chance of getting but you never know if you don’t try.
So that’s where I am right now. I’m currently writing this at 1AM while planning some scenes for the rest of my script. With that, I have a lot of work to do. I have A LOT of stuff to write and the deadline is the 1st of October. I’m super excited to hopefully apply. I stumbled across something that is actually my dream and I may be a tired crumble of a woman when I submit my application but I need to do this.
I know I’ve taken breaks from my blog before and it’s tearing my heart in half that I don’t have the mental to capacity to juggle so many things at once but with everything I’ve said above, the pressure is on. I have 8 days until the deadline. I will come back a day or two after the deadline with some fresh new content for you and I hope you all can understand why I’ve been gone and will be for another week or so. Thank you for sticking with me on this journey and although I may not get in, it’s worth a shot!
