Unfortunately, real life caught up. In January, I was still studying for my masters in Taxation, studying to take the exams to get my CPA License, and preparing to start working 80 hour weeks once done with school. I knew that when the time came, I would have to take a step back from blogging. No more twittering all day long, reading and commenting on all the blogs on my feed reader, and definitely no more reading 2-3 books a week and reviewing them.
Sadly my friends that time has come. August 13 I graduate with my masters, and on August 15 I will begin work at a CPA firm. I used to think that I would not continue blogging when the time came, but there is no way I am giving this up. NO WAY! However, my presence on the blog and on twitter won't be the same.
I will miss all the lovely book convos I have had and being able to read a book in a day, but real life calls. HOWEVER, blogging has taught me that I need books in my life, so my plan has somewhat changed. I will work a couple of years in accounting and then I would like to go back to school and get a masters in publishing. That way I could keep books in my life the way I have done these past 8 months.
I hope you all continue to read from the blog, because no matter how busy I am, I will continue posting. I DEEPLY appreciate everyone that has taken the time to read my opinion on books, and I hope to be doing this forever :)
PERSONAL NOTE: I totally got teary eyed writing this, and I think I need to explain another reason why I started blogging. Yes, I love books and yes I love sharing my love of them with others... but the main reason I started was because around that time January 2011, I felt like I had lost my way in life, only going through motions, not seeing how life could be any better than the ordinary mundane things that happened every day. I was stressed with school and life, and you could say that it was the beginning of a downward spiral. January 1, 2011 I made a news years resolution. I said 2011 would be my year. I would step out of my comfort zone, I would get back into reading, and I would finally get the blog I always wanted to start. And I did it. Like I said in the top, 8 months ago blogging changed my life and I couldn't be any happier with my blog, my self, and my life.
Thank you all for reading.
