Going Off Topic (#20) A Short Hiatus

I’m taking a break for a couple of weeks. Since I got back from holiday last month I’ve really struggled to stay active, and it’s led to me having a huge catch-up day of writing my own posts and reading everyone else’s posts, then feeling burnt out and staying away for 3-4 days at a time, only to play catch up again. It’s honestly starting to make blogging feel like a chore and I don’t want it to be that way!

I just feel so out of the loop at the moment, there are movies coming out in the cinema and on Netflix etc that I’ve never even heard of, and I’m usually so in the know. I just want to take a couple of weeks to get my head sorted and my personal life in check, and perhaps get a few posts drafted up ready for when I come back.

I’m far from giving up on my blog though, I absolutely adore it. I love logging in to see new comments, and reading other posts to add to my watch list!

There are a few new releases I’m really excited about. Zombieland: Double Tap comes out in the UK this week, I’m growing ever more impatient for Knives Out to be released, and we’re bound to be getting a Rise of Skywalker trailer soon! Speaking of which, we’re getting THREE Adam Driver movies before Christmas. So there’s that!

I’m trying to catch up on TV Shows, too. I gave up on Mr. Robot for a while but I’m working my way through Season 3, and I’m all caught up with Superstore now which I really enjoyed. Plus, we’re getting new episodes of The Good Place on Netflix so there’s a lot to look forward to.

My little girl turns two tomorrow. I’ve actually kept a little human alive for 2 whole years! Go me. She’s growing up into the funniest kid as well, she brings a smile to the face of anyone and everyone who meets her! The lucky little kid has 3 birthday cakes, too. She took one into nursery with her this morning to share with her friends, and they’re all going to sing happy birthday to her. Then we’ve got family over on Saturday evening so I bought a cake for that. On Sunday, she’s got her official party with her friends so there’s another cake for that!

But yeah. I’m sorry to up and leave for a while. But it’s taken me over 5 hours to even write this post, so I need to step back for a little bit. In the words of Arnie, “Put that cookie down, now!”

Err, I mean…I’ll be back.

  1. Everyone needs a little bit of time off work and blogging is no different. I take time off all the time so I can reset my mind and make it feel like less of a job. After all, we started this stuff because we enjoyed doing it (it really does feel like a second job sometimes though).

    It’s gonna be weird for me because I check your blog every day for new posts (it’s also a 2 birds 1 stone scenario because I always check my notifications when I am on your site instead of having to go to mine).

    Anyways, enjoy your couple of blog-less weeks (or at least writing-less weeks if you decide to read others posts still?).


  2. I know how you feel – there’s so many movies and shows to catch up with, it’s hard to keep track of everything and stay motivated to blog. I hope you have a nice break, and happy birthday to your little girl!!!


  3. I think taking a break every now and then is really important for so many reasons! I went through a phase where I didn’t even want to watch any movies because I felt burned out. Plus, work, family, other hobbies… it begins to feel like a lot. Happy belated bday to your 2 year old! My girls are 9 and 6 (twins) and I still marvel that I’ve managed to raise 3 human beings this long. LOL. take care and can’t wait to read more of your stuff when you come back!
