Good afternoon! It's been a while since I've felt this drained. Like, worse than finals if I'm being honest. I think it's been because I've been working nearly every day since getting home, and if not working it's because I'm busy doing something else and needed to take off. I do have two days off this week, though one of them is because I have a doctor's appointment, and the other is on a weekend which means I'll probably spend it doing things with my family. I don't mean for that to sound like a bad thing, but it's not exactly the most recharging. Of course, I enjoy my work and the paycheck since that's how I'm able to get people gifts this year. Like a battery, though, I need time to recharge, which I haven't had yet.
On a similar note, I'm also excited to return to school! Like, excited to get back to learning and taking notes and feeling super productive. This always happens during break and it's such a strange feeling, since after I get back I probably won't be that excited anymore.
I have gotten back into the blogging spirit, though, and that means I've gotten back into the reading spirit, too! It's been great to actually be finishing things again and it does help with the hours I've been working and just relaxing me in general. I want to make sure that this reading bug stays with me when I go back to school. I have been reevaluating things here on the blog, though, and I think I've finally settled on some changes that I look forward to implementing in the new year. I hope it all goes over well!
