It’s been about a month since my last blog post. I’ve become the student teacher in a special needs kindergarten class, and it has consumed pretty much all of my life. I leave the house at 6:45 a.m., and I don’t get home until about 5 p.m. (It’s a +1 school, so student dismissal isn’t until 3:30). Once I’m home, I have to work on my college assignments and lesson planning – so I really don’t get any free time until about 8 p.m. I absolutely love my job, and I am so excited to teach every single morning! However, this requires a lot of energy, and for a while my excitement towards blogging faded.
So here I am, a month later and finally writing another post. After my first week of not posting, I started to feel guilty. I thought that I was betraying everybody who reads my blog; I have made friends with a lot of you, and it feels like a family. But, I realized the world spins on regardless of whether I post or not. 😉 I decided that I would take a break, until I actually felt a yearning to write again. Because at the end of the day, I blog because I enjoy it. If I had continued to post even though I wasn’t feeling it, then it would have lost its fun, and I wouldn’t have created any posts worth being proud of.
So, why am I sharing this with you? Well, I’ve noticed that a lot of bloggers seem to go through the same things as I do. Half the posts I read start with “I know I haven’t blogged in a while, and I’m so sorry…”. I just want to encourage my fellow bloggers to take a break if you need to! If it is something you need, then you shouldn’t have to apologize for it. Take care of yourself first. 🙂
I don’t know how often I will post over the duration of my student teaching. I may go back to posting regularly, or I make take another break. Thank you to everybody who continues to read my inconsistent blog. 😉 I hope you all have a wonderful day!
