Hey Guys, today I’m coming at you with a life update.Β I don’t think there will be many exclamation points in this post, and this will also be pretty short because I’m trying to write some other posts later tonight too.

Also, did you know PSA means public service update because up until 5 minutes ago, I didn’t!



So, as of lately I have started Uni for the first time and I am also currently five weeks into my first Trimester.Β  So far, I am going pretty well with classes and attendance. But, lately, I have had some pretty intense family drama, including one of my brothers being hospitalised and a lot of parental problems.

I’ve been having a lot of issues concentrating lately and the only thing keeping me going is my anxiety and Uni. I know I’m going to collapse soon but, I don’t know when hence this post.


Because I’ve been feeling so anxious lately and my life is such a mess, I feel like my life is also a mess by default. I haven’t replied to comments from some of last month’s blog posts and my stats have completely gone out the window.

If I’m being honest with you guys, I would kill to go on a blogging hiatus right now, but I’m actually really excited to get to all of the blog posts I have scheduled for this month. I have a bunch of big recommendations posts, some fun How To advice posts and some interesting discussions too. I am really excited for all of these and I really want to write them for all of you guys, but realistically I just don’t know if I’m going to be able to do it. I know I need to take a break but in terms of posts, I already have scheduled I don’t want to have to re-route them into drafts because I really want to write them! Ugh!Β  don’t know if any of that made sense, but please tell me you sort of understood that??


So, basically what this whole post comes down to is this. I am super stressed and anxious right now and all I want to do is go to Uni and work on my blog. But, I go to write a post and I just freeze up, it’s not working for me.

I might end up taking a hiatus but, I’m really not sure how this month is going to turn out because as we all know, anxiety is unpredictable af.

  1. If you need a hiatus, take it! Your mental health is more important than your blog, always! Keeping up with our blogs can be super stressful, and we inflict the most pressure on ourselves. Best of luck with school and life. 😘 -Ashley

    1. You make a great point, my mental health is definitely at an all-time low atm, but I’m hoping that if I keep keeping on with my blog I will be able to use it as a coping mechanism and be able to chill out and write blog posts. But, if that ends up not being the case/working out, I will definitely take a hiatus this month.

      Thank you so much for your comment and support! ❀️


  2. Hi Ellyn! I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve been having problems lately, I can’t imagine how stressed you are. I hope everything will be fine, and if you need to take a hiatus, we’ll all be here waiting so don’t worry ❀ I'm excited to see your content to, but your health always comes first *hugs*

  3. Oh I’m so, so sorry to hear you’ve been feeling so stressed out with everything happening 😦 please take care of yourself first, that’s what matters the most. I know how stressful it is and disappointing to see your stats going down, but what matters is yourself, first and always. Taking a little break might be best in that situation, to take some time away to cool off a little bit and I hope everything will be a bit better for you and your family soon ❀ I'm sending you lots of positive thoughts xx

  4. I deal with it …taking a break. Sometimes life gets in the way and you can’t do everything at the same time. Taking a break is also a good way to get new ideas. So don’t feel guilty and do what you have to.

  5. Aww, it absolutely does make sense! Don’t hesitate to take a break if you need one – we’ll still be here when you come back. I feel you, though; sometimes I think I *should* take a break, but I don’t fully want to, so I end up just powering through. It can be very taxing sometimes.
