Some Updates!

Saturday, 15 June 2013
loving this kitty! ^.^
Hey guys! Today I've decided to give you all a little explanation as to why I've not been posting as much lately, and why I may be a little absent for the next few weeks as well. I usually just put these sort-of updates at the end of posts but since I've got quite a bit to say, I've decided to dedicate a whole post to it. After all, you deserve a full explanation. :)
First off, some of you may know I started my new school year this week. I am no longer a 4th year now, but a 5th year. Or a Junior to those of you in America. Anyway. I've got two weeks left until the summer holidays and for those of you wondering why I'm in my new year already, it's because my school likes us to get settled in to our new classes so we all know what we're doing and where we've to be when we return to school in August. Right, going off topic...
Since I am now a Senior (in Scotland both 5th and 6th years are classed as Seniors :P) I've now got double periods - take it from me, an hour and forty minutes of Math isn't fun! - and quite a lot of homework. Since I've only just started getting double periods, my system isn't quite used to it yet and so that's why there have been no blog posts up this week. After coming home from school already tired enough and then having to sit down and do more homework for the next day, I've just had no energy to write up a post. I do apologize for that! :( I'm sure I'll get used to this new schedule soon enough and be able to have my usual amount of motivation to write up book reviews, discussion posts etc. :P
As much as I'd like to say as soon as the summer holidays start I'll instantly be able to post loads, I just won't be able to. I'll be going on holiday for the first two weeks to Spain. So, basically, what I'm trying to say here is that it's most likely I'll be posting only a few times over the next two weeks followed by nothing for the following two weeks after that - if I manage to schedule any posts for the time I'll be in Spain, I'll make sure to tell you, but chances are I probably won't have the time. :3 However, after these four weeks are over, I'll be making sure to post hundreds! :D
So, there you go. Admittedly, a rather boring post, but I thought you should all know what is going on. :P
Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo
PS: I'll most likely also be a little absent from comment boxes, twitter, goodreads and the like. :(


  1. Take your time! I can understand that you need some time to get used to the new scheme and I hope you enjoy your vacation. Spain, awesome :D


  2. I'm going to Spain for two weeks at the beginning of the holidays too - maybe we'll see each other ;D

    I can relate to the amount of homework/revision - horrible, isn't it? I hate maths too. If you ever need someone to complain with.. feel free to tweet me! Good luck for the next couple of weeks and have an AMAZING time in Spain! :)

  3. No worries Rachel, you have a lot on your plate. I couldn't survive a hour and 40 minutes of Maths, I hate my standard 50 minute Maths lessons. Spain sounds amazing, you are so lucky and I can't wait to hear all about your trip. Good Luck!!

  4. That's really cool that you get settled into your new classes and such before summer holidays, I've never heard of any school doing that before! I totally can relate to not having enough energy to be doing posts- my exams only ended last week. ;) Don't worry about not posting much, school and vacation are very important! And we'll be here when you get back. :D

    Good luck, and have fun in Spain!! <3

  5. it's okayyy :) You have plenty of time to blog when summer vacation come xD
    And I know double period is such a disaster -.- I'm gonna be a Senior like you in the up coming year :) We're same age though :P And yeah, 1 hour and more of chemistry is not fun -.-
    Anyway :) Luckyyy you :) Have fun in Spain okayy :P

  6. I totally understand that Rachel! School can be really hectic -- double period is just insane! I couldn't stand one period of physic how am I supposed to survive that? xD I'm starting high school next July so I might be posting less too...

    Hope you have a nice holiday! :3
