This is not the End

A picture from a beach vacation I took with my family

I’ve been really scarce on here lately and it’s been for a good reason. My final year of my undergrad has begun and it has hit me full force.

This semester, I’m taking 17 credits and while not all of those command as much of my time as some of the others, I still find that I’ll have a lot to do as far as completing projects for those classes. I already feel intimidated just thinking of one of those projects.

I’m also working 2 jobs and while both of them are conveniently located on campus and near my house, they both take away from my precious free time.

And since I’m in my final year, I need to think about find a job for after graduation. Yes, I’m finally going to be entering the real world as a tech geek within the next year. I’m excited for that upcoming new phase of my life but I’m also scared and worried about finding the right job for me.

With everything that’s going on, I think I need to take a little break from blogging. Believe me, this is in no way the end of Catastrophe Rising but I do need to take a step back and focus on my life and the tasks of making sure I stay on top of things so I can graduate in May.

I’m so thankful for all the support you readers have given me. Your kindness has meant the world to me and I will always cherish that. And I’m not going away completely. You’ll be seeing plenty of me on Twitter and you can still use that to say hi. Or if you want to email me, that works too.

I’ll start blogging again when things calm down a little bit. It may not be until November or December but I promise, I will come back.

Until then, email me or tweet me.

Au revior.

    I think it’s completely understandable that you want to take a break from blogging. Offline should get priority! Good luck with jobs & school!

    I totally understand. Having done both undergrad and grad school, my own blogging activities became non-existent. But blogging is one of those things you can pick up again, so just focus on your schooling. Good luck 🙂

    Good luck with your senior year! Looks like you have a lot on your plate and it’s totally understandable that you need to shift your focus on the things that matter more!
