I have recently been on a blogging hiatus. I usually make new posts every few days or so, but I have failed that routine lately and haven’t posted in about 2 weeks. I feel disappointed in myself and sorry to anyone who regularly reads my blog (I hope there is someone who does), but life lately has been quite chaotic and has taken a physical and emotional toll on me. I went on a trip to Phuket, Thailand (I might do a photo diary post if anyone is interested), I finished secondary school classes forever, celebrated the end of high school on Muck Up Day and have been studying like crazy for the end of year exams that my life depend on (a bit of a hyperbole there but I needed to get my point across).
This year is my last year of secondary school and in Australia that means one of the hardest years of your life as you are expected to work consistently and at maximum effort for a score that deeply affects your career and life. My exams are a major contributor to that score and they begin in 2 days. I probably should be studying right now but I really felt like I needed to write this post or else the stress of not updating my blog will compound with my current stress of school and then I probably just cry (I’m not really an emotional person but the stress is definitely getting to me). My priority this year was school because a life goal of mine is to get into my desired course in my dream university, which has meant that my blog has taken the back seat in my life. I love writing my blog although I feel like the quality of my posts could be much better, but I have been limited in producing them due to my commitments to school. On the 12th of November high school will be over and done with for me, I will have finished all my 5 exams and awaiting for that nerve-wracking ATAR score. That day will signify my completion of high school but also the day where my blog will take top priority and I will be committed in producing (hopefully) quality content.
I hope I am prepared for my exams. I am excited for what the future outside of high school holds and I really hope I get into my dream university.
An Odd Girl will be back soon.
