A year and a half ago, I would never have thought I’d be glued to the computer screen this desperately, wondering how to phrase myself, how to put forward my words in such a way that someone, anyone would smile or at least think back to what I’ve written.
That, of course, was before I started blogging.
To just leave it at saying that I had fun would be a severe understatement. Blogging has become so much a thing I love that I know for a fact that if someone calls me Auri or Nairne in the real world, I’d respond.
I’ve met and got to know so many amazing people who were the true reason behind my love for this corner of the internet.
But before I go too much into that, I suppose I should explain why I’m being all melancholic at the moment.
Hmmm…. I guess it’s pretty evident from the title though?
I’m going to be taking a very long hiatus.
Ehhh…. why? You’re jobless anyway….
That’s true, I don’t want to say that I’m so busy that I can’t make time for blogging (that’s not true) but it’s the blogging that’s taking up all my time.
Let me explain that. I am, as most of you know, in my last year of high school. While that itself is jam packed with academics and sports (Cause I’m the idiot who wants to win at least once in my school life), it is also the year where I write entrance tests to get into colleges.
I know that I don’t talk about studies, my studies in specific, on this blog much, so I don’t expect all of you to know that I have decided to pursue medicine.
In my country over 1200000 people write the entrance test for medical stream (Ok I admit I put the zeroes just to exaggerate the figure…) Again, this wouldn’t be much of a problem to pass if not for the minor fact that I also ONLY want to study medicine in the army college.
That means that I now have to be in the top 100-200 of those 120000.
Yeah. While that should hit me hard, I kind of just feel excited. I want to get in the top 50 and get into the army college.
Added to this is also the fact that I need to pass a physical test to make it through. I don’t think this would be much of an issue, because not to boast, I’m pretty fit. Like above average fit. Just… a bit out of shape. So I need to work on that as well.
So, why did I tell you this?
Because I am confident with my abilities but I know for a fact that I need to put in much more effort to get to the high goals I set for myself.
But while I sit to study, I find myself thinking about what to write for the blog. I hate to say this, but this has become more than a slight distraction for me….
My entrance exam is in next May, so until then I shall not be blogging. You can still catch me on Twitter up until September, after which I’ll be completely off the net. So this post is basically an update as to what happens to things when I am not here.
Continue Don’t Quit
Like I mentioned, you can always contact me on twitter @AuroraAcacia until September, and I will check my mails sporadically as well.
But after that (or anytime) you can contact the following people who were wonderful enough to volunteer for the same! I know that many many of you have volunteered for this, so I’ll create a Twitter list for the same…
- Rin-san (Irina from I drink and Watch Anime)
- Rai-san (Raistlin from Raistlin 0903)
Email id: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Remy-nii (Remy Fool from the Lily Garden)
- The Continue Don’t Quit Twitter List
I’M SO SORRY TO DO THIS WITHOUT NOTICE!!!
I really hope you guys are still going to be up for it after a year, I APOLOGISE!!!!
ESPECIALLY to Mura-san.
Ugh, I’m really really sorry Mura-san and everyone else, I’m so sorry!
There won’t be any blog posts for the next whole year duh, but I will be back with many many new ideas and perhaps even another blog in addition to this one.
I’ll also pretend like this part of the year doesn’t count and celebrate my grand two year anniversary in October 2019.
That’s pretty much it. Thank you very very much for all the support. I am extremely grateful to every single one of you.
I hope I’ll be back with great news of being accepted into the college.
Thanks again and goodbye for now.
