In general, fashion bloggers, this overwhelmingly female group, may be considerably less tech-oriented than most other Internet authors. These are women, a lot of whom blog as a part-time thing. They have large lives outside of their blogs - which is why it happens that sometimes it's easier to get sidetracked by real life and simply forgo blogging for a few days, or more.
I don't know if I managed to get my point across without sounding sexist towards my own gender, but then again, I am writing this after a Saturday that meant work and study for the finals I am not ready for. The main idea was, that, well, forgoing blogging for a while comes along with a nagging feeling of guilt that in and of itself can stop you from finding the remedy to the situation - publishing a post.
I've been beating myself up for days - I had a wonderful Christmas break, the kind you have when you go back home after 4 months of not seeing your loved ones, but after it, somehow, I couldn't snap back. I had plenty of opportunities to take a half hour, edit some photos and post them, simply saying, "Hey guys, thanks for the support, here how I'm spending the holidays, hope you're enjoying yourselves". But for some reason I didn't. And I kept feeling a bitter dose of FBG, every day, all day.
Which is not ok. I'm a full time student at a very demanding University, I work quite a bit and I'm trying to have a social life - blogging is something I enjoy, and if I can take it to the next level, that's great. But if I cannot, it is not the end of the world.
So what did happen since I last wrote?
- I went home to Romania and saw family and friends, my heart almost exploded with joy
- I partied way too much, including a crazy New Year's Eve party
- I turned 20 (twenty!!!)
- I returned to Belgium and entered an insane time of preparing for final exams
- I became forever grateful for the continued support of you guys, I love and appreciate every comment I receive
- I got lots and lots of loving from this guy below
