The Mind of Avie | Where Have I Been?

First off, I want to start this post off with an apology for the lack of posts recently. If you are new, I recently did the blog everyday in May challenge, also known as BEDM, and since then I haven't been posting as frequent. I've actually only posted once week and I try to get that one post out on a Wednesday at the very least. This week I wasn't successful on that one, but nonetheless, the post went up. Again, sorry for the lack of posts since May.
Anyway, on to where have I been. Life basically caught up with me fully loaded with busy-ness. During BEDM I was in between college semesters, so I had a ton of free time, I otherwise wouldn't have. Since BEDM ended (thankfully, just in time) I started summer courses and they have been super time consuming. If you are not familiar with summer courses in college, they are super condensed compared to a regular semester's class. Basically, I have to learn and take the same amount of tests in pretty much half the time of a regular semester. So I have been really busy with that. 

I also received a promotion at work that demands a lot more of my time at and away from work. Before my promotion, I had a little more free time at and away from work aside from school, so it made it easier to pre-schedule posts ahead of time and what not. Since I have received the promotion, I have been slammed. I think it may have more to do with the classes I am taking, but I think both combined are very time consuming. 
To sum everything up, almost everything in my life has been full force and I have been experimenting with time management and trying to get myself into a regular schedule. Once I figure that schedule out, I plan to continue blogging and hope to have more that one post up a week. I love blogging and enjoy using it as my creative outlet, so I do not plan to let it go. 
If you have any suggestions for me on what any of you do for time management with a busy schedule outside of blogging, I am all ears. I am incorporating tons of advice I received during the BEDM challenge, but I would love to hear more and try to piece it all together! Thanks in advance guys & again I am so sorry for the absence! I hope you all can forgive me while I try to figure it all out.

Stay Tuned for These Future Posts!

  1. Hi, I know what you mean about time getting away from you. I too am not posting as much as I want. I just keep trying to get into a schedule, but it is hard. Just keep swimming. :)

    1. Hi Mary!
      Yes, we just have to keep swimming! ;) It can be a little difficult sometimes, but it all pays off in the end. Thanks for stopping by too! :)
