Hey guys! It’s been a while since I last wrote a blog haha, and I have so much to say!!
Firstly, I’d like to start off with the fact that I got accepted into one of my first-choice universities! I won’t say any specifics to keep it private, but in short, I have honors classes and a plan/program with the university to earn my master’s in finance and accounting within five years. In fact, classes start this summer.
To focus on getting a master’s within a shortened time frame, I really need to get it together haha. I’m already busy as it is with school, and juggling AFF has been quite a challenge. I haven’t updated much in these past few months, and while I will try to be better, I have no guarantees in the future. To get my priorities straight and checkboxes checked on time, I’m pushing back on writing so I can use my free time to attend classes and do more casual activities before I get into all those challenging classes. I was planning on getting a job as well, but I’ve been recommended by several people to focus on being a full-time student, so that’s what I’m doing.
…which brings me to my next point: updates.
I really, really wanted to publish more stories, but seeing as I have enough on my plate, I won’t be doing that any time soon.
Instead, I made a list for my stories and the order I hope they’ll be updated and completed.
- As You Wish
- Black in White
- Software Instability
- Sweetest Kill
- Transit of Venus
For As You Wish readers, you should know that there are only a few chapters left, so it should be completed (hopefully) before March ends or in April.
For Black in White readers, I don’t know when the story will be completed, but I am currently working on getting the second arc out. Updates for this story will be sporadic since I post big chapters cut up into chunks all at once, so when I do post, you’ll probably be getting a good amount of content. I’m hoping I’ll get this story under 80k words.
For Software Instability readers, this story will be about 10-15 chapters which is why I want to focus on getting it done. Again, I’m not sure when it’ll be completed or how often I’ll update, but I will get it done!
For Sweetest Kill readers, I’m working on getting this done before summer. It’ll have probably 20-30 chapters that are on the shorter side. A long-awaited update should come soon.
Lastly for Transit of Venus and Run-8 readers, these are my longer stories, so they’ll be on a temporary hiatus until I get my pending list of six incomplete stories to at least four. I have every intention to finish these stories, so I hope you’re all patient with me.
TL;DR – None of my stories will be deleted or abandoned! I’m just very busy.
Thirdly, just some random little things I wanted you guys to know:
I haven’t been feeling emotionally or mentally well in these past few months. I don’t usually talk about this because I don’t see it as a big deal, but lately, I’ve been…feeling unlike myself. Every other night or so, I have trouble sleeping, so I go to bed at 3 or 4am. Then in the very early morning, I wake up at around 6 or 7 only to get out of bed an hour or two later. As much as I try, I can’t seem to care about all my loves as much as I did. In this past month, I only went out once with friends. I’ve also gotten very, very bad at replying to messages. I’m not sure if it’s just senioritis or burnt-out-ness, but I’ve been trying out new activities to get rid of this gray.
That’s why I’ve been updating my layout thread more than my stories, heh. Coding layouts is really fun, and I’m not as pressured to make them :-D
School is dwindling down to its last few months as well, and as a high school senior, it means so many things. Prom (I’m still debating whether to ask someone out), graduation requirements, chemistry tests, etc—it’s a lot. I’m so excited and so scared at the same time!
Anyways, I hope you guys understand my current state of affairs haha. I have a lot going on, but I promise I will finish my stories. I haven’t forgotten about my readers or those stories.
I hope everyone is doing well too! How is everyone?
