Konnichiwa, Mikuites! If you’ve been closely following my blog––which I’m assuming if you’re reading this, chances are that you do––you’ve probably noticed that I haven’t posted anything new in a while.
I’m not one who usually likes to make excuses, especially when it comes to writing, but after much contemplation, I’ve decided that it’d be in my best interest to go on a short hiatus. I’m not doing this out of anger or depression––in fact I’ve been getting more views recently than I ever have been––but due to physical stress. Last Saturday I did more labor during my community service than I ever have during any other day of my whole life. I feel like I sprinted 5 miles, and 24 hours later certain parts of my body still feel numb.
Now, when it comes to this blog, over the past two years I’ve been in many tight situations, and getting a new post up is always my first priority, even if it means staying up late the night before. But right now I just can’t. I’d be too focused on the feelings of pain and achiness in my fingers every time I touch the keyboard (that’s what happens when you’ve been shoveling gravel and mud for 4 straight hours) than to be able to concentrate on what I’m writing. Last week was also my birthday as well, so I “lost” a few days of writing while celebrating that. ^^; Therefore, I think it’s best to take the next few days off, to give my body some time to recover. Who knows, maybe this will give me time to think up more ideas of what to write, since I’m falling short on that also.
