Taking a Break

After a couple of recent 'foot in mouth' incidents (or should I call them 'keyboard in mouth'?!) I have concluded I need to take a break, at least until after exams are over - or maybe prac?. I love blogging so much, I've been trying to keep it up despite really not having the time or energy to devote to it. I can write some funny stuff at times. The problem is when I am trying to be funny or smart, and it comes out all wrong. Doesn't help that you can't hear voice inflections, or see body language online...something I often tend to forget. Anyway, I've been rushing and rushing because I (of course) still want to do everything else as well as study, having rediscovered the enjoyment of life beyond study. As it is not fun discovering in retrospect that a few of the things I've said have not be ah, quite what they should have, and I have also lost a lot of the enjoyment of doing the actual writing to start with because I've been so stressed out over exams, I figure it would be best to just put the blog down for a few weeks. It's not like it is going to go away, is it? I hope you enjoy the next few weeks, and we can enjoy some more conversations when I return!

You are right Amy - there are times, when for the sake of our own sanity (and our family's), we have to put some things on hold for a period of time - my expression is that "something has to give, and it's not going to be me in the middle!"
Take care and we will welcome you back when you get here.

I am in awe of all you are managing to do, but sometimes we do need to take a step back... good on you, as you said - your blog will still be here, and you'll probably have even more ideas to write about!

Have a good break - you certainly deserve it
