Back from the hole and feeling confused

Three days ago I finished the last exam of my high school life and three months of holiday is  waiting before me. And yeah, this means I will be able to read books, watch anime and blog again. Such a great news, yes?!

Unfortunately, I will just be straight to the point. You know, in the past few months, I kept promising that I would make it up this holiday. I said that I would be more active after national exams were done. The truth is, I find it really hard to write posts now. I know that I’m allowed to come back to my old blogging routine slowly but right now it feels like I’m trying to grip into thin air.

Back then, it was so easy. All I need to do was sit in front of my laptop and words and sentences would come so naturally. Now it’s taking forever just to express my thoughts. I have been brainstorming a few ideas but I have no clue how to put them into words. Is this how it supposed to feel? I mean I have been waiting for this time to come back from my hiatus and I’m really disappointed that it turns out like this.

I wonder how long this phase will last. I hope it’s almost the same like being in a school orientation, in which everything seems alien at first. But one day, it will be a routine I most look forward to.

What do you think about my problem? Have you ever felt like this before? Do you have any tips for me?

  1. Aw~ you can go back to the swing of things sooner or later but forcing it is, for me, not really a good idea. I haven’t read a book in AGES! I decided to give up trying then I stumbled upon a snippet of Trails of Apollo and I loved it! I’m quite excited to read it. For the first in what it feels like eons, I have a book that truly, TRULY excites me! And I just unintentionally bumped into it so…my point is it’ll come naturally.
    Don’t feel guilty, people experience that. I experienced that. And sometimes a breather can help. And maybe in those breaks an idea will hatch! It just needs one needed push! Good luck!

    1. Oh I still haven’t read Trials of Apollo and I call myself a die-hard Rick Riordan fan ^^; And thanks for your support! I have been struggling with writing posts even before this holiday started. I hope I can recover from it somehow. Maybe some anime posts will do hehehe

  2. Eep! I’m currently going through this right now! My exams finished a month ago and I’m still not able to post anything. It’s okay if you can’t post anything! Maybe you’re not used to it, give yourself some time.

    1. Thank you! I’m glad there’s somebody out there who’s going through the same thing as me. It’s probably because I haven’t blogged for a loooong time that my skills are getting rusty again. 😀

  3. Yes I am feeling like this right now. I have a really hard time writing reviews, more so than I did before, and it SUCKS. And all of my blogging motivation has gone out the window, and I know it’s going to take me a while to get back into it.

    I’m glad that you’re having a huge break though! I won’t get mine until a month from now, WHICH IS GOOD. I have already started watching anime (I usually don’t watch anime during the academic year, but I figured since I’m one month away from being done with it all, it should be fine). What are you watching (or will be watching?)? I’m watching the Ace Attorney anime (FINALLY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. Avid gamer here). Also Boku no Hero Academia. And Bungou Stray Dogs.

    1. Awww thanks Val!! So sorry that I’ve only had the chance to reply to your lovely comment now! To be honest, I haven’t tried any of the spring line-up because I just got back from two trips with my friends but I’m planning to watch Bungou Stray Dogs. I also played Ace Attorney back then but I’m not sure what to expect from the anime xD

      I did manage to finish Gin no Saji and it was such a heartwarming anime. Kinda reminds me of Barakamon :’)
