Slump. That's the best word I can come up with to describe my mood currently.
I read a couple of awesome books to end June that were absolutely amazing. Since then, I've had a hard time getting into anything. I've picked up several books, and set them down. I finished a book that I thought I would love, and struggle through it. I even got a few awesome ARCs last week. I'm having a hard time getting into anything.
I thought that maybe I just needed to read something that I knew I would love, so I picked up a favourite of mine and reread it. I loved it, but ended up feeling worse than when I started.
I didn't post much this week. This is actually the only post I've written this week. Both my reviews were already written.
Part of this was an that I was away for a couple days, but I've also felt like I've had no creativity or motivation. I just don't know what to write or talk about. I even have a list of things already planned, and I can't get the words to come out.
Life has been hard on me for a couple weeks, too. I've received not-so-fantastic news and felt like I have had very little support through it by those around me. I'm having a difficult time being back home again, in the middle of nowhere, while all my friends have been moving on with their lives. I'm really questioning the decision I made to move back home, even though I know that it makes the most sense right now.
Work has also been awful. To be frank, I have not been treated well by my coworkers. I have worked non-stop since I returned, taking shifts for everyone, and no one is willing to help me back. It's hard to feel completely unsupported at your job, especially when it's a crappy job. I know it's just for the summer, but it's beginning to really wear on me.
So, yeah. My life is in a little slump right now. The blog may be slower for a bit, but the goods will still be going up. Any words of wisdom on how to get up out of it?
Much love, Samantha
