Winter Break Hiatus?

I leave for China tomorrow (let’s hope I didn’t forget to pack anything) and had originally planned to have all of my posts queued up and ready to go.

… as you could probably surmise from my use of “originally”, this plan has fallen through. I know exactly what posts I wanted to share, too! But a combination of a hectic schedule, episodes of extreme low energy, and poor time management on my part, if I’m being honest, means that it’s not happening. I don’t have weeks worth of blog posts ready before leaving.

Because I don’t know what the Great Firewall situation is with WordPress and the other resources I planned on using to complete these posts is, I am going to tentatively go on hiatus until I come back the second week of January. Fingers crossed I can get some posts up while I’m away, though! If I don’t, I’ll try to up my frequency because it’s that magical time of year where I do my year-end reflections and recaps and new year’s resolutions and those definitely need to get published ASAP.

In the meantime, please have happy holidays and I’ll see you in 2018!

Unscheduled Hiatus

Happy Friday!

I did not mean to take this unscheduled break from posting but the second half of August has proven to be a lot busier than I initially thought. I am planning a spot of travel right when September starts, and have a lot of family obligations over the weekends, which means I am grinding a lot during my already sparse weekday evenings. (Remember when I was trying to cool it with my weekday obligations… oh to dream…)

I will try to get some posts scheduled for the time that I’m out, but I think I will be taking a break from posting until I come back closer to the end of September. (I’ll be doing my annual trip to Manhattan and revisiting Paris if you have any suggestions for what I should do!)

Also, reviews and updates from me will continue to go up on Punch Drunk Critics so you can follow along there if you’re craving movie reviews from me!

Can you believe summer is about to end? It really seems to fly by once we turn the Fourth of July corner.

How will you be squeezing the last bit of summer in? I’m a bit sad that I haven’t gone to the beach this summer, despite a few attempts to get myself to the ocean. But we still have over a month before the autumnal equinox, so we all have plenty of time to summer it up!

Short Break

Hi all,

I’m going to be taking a short break in my posting schedule. I’ve been experiencing a pretty low mood for the past 3 weeks and I feel like it is reflected in the poor quality of my posts over here. Plus, I find myself really forcing myself to update twice a week, so to be fair to you and myself, I’m just going to take some time off and try to work on getting my spirits back up.

I do really hate to interrupt my schedule, because the schedule is sort of the only thing that really keeps me consistently posting, but I need to take some time to work on my mental health.

In the meantime, if you want to share anything that usually gets you back in a better mood, please do share! I’m partial to cute animal videos but am open to anything 😀

Thank you for your support and understanding,


Hi all, so sorry to do this YET AGAIN but I am doing a very last minute personal improvement project with a deadline that is rapidly approaching. As I didn’t sign up for this little project of mine until very recently, I am scrambling a lot so I don’t know if I’ll be able to stay on schedule. I will try to use my procrastination time (of which there is sure to be plenty) to post some goodies up for you all but I must ask for your forgiveness as I possibly disappear for a week or 2.

Thanks and I hope your resolutions are all going well!
