[Another] Break from Writing/Blogging

This is sudden, but today I felt an overwhelming desire to write a post saying that, for now, I want to take a break from blogging; I don't know what brought on this desire at all, but the overwhelming feeling that I need the break is something I really can't shake off right now, so I am writing this to let you all know that, once again this year, I will be taking a break from blogging here, at least.

I realise I have not written for a week, which is bad, and it's been niggling at me, but my inspiration is at 0. I hate writing without the desire, pull or inspiration, and so I know right now that I need a break away from writing, not only to regain desire, but also to think about things, because next month (September), I start University.

I've become stressed because of it, my emotions are at a low point, and I've felt really useless as of late. I know you hate hearing that, but it's the truth; I'm at such a low-point, I just want to cry sometimes and I bully myself over little things. Right now, I'm vulnerable emotionally and I know it, and I think stressing over writing my blog won't help me at all.

I hope for the break to be, at most 1-2 weeks, though I do go off to my friends in August so even then I may not blog so much. Either way, I need this, and I apologise that it's so sudden after a week of nothing, not even a Digest.

I feel like I am failing every single one of you, the people I adore, the blog I love so much, but I know I can't write right now, not when I'm pretty much falling apart over leaving home and going somewhere else. I hope you all understand, and know that I really treasure you all.

Please wait for my return, because I will miss you all.



  1. It's okay, going away from home for a long time for the first time can be hard. Especially when you have something like schooling to worry about on top of it.

    So rest up, have fun and I am sure we'll be waiting for you when you return.

  2. Aww... :(

    Chiima I just wanna give you a big ole hug right now. I think I can relate somewhat to your emotions right now, too. So you take all the time you need and I'll be right here waiting for you when you come back. :) <3

  3. It's okay, Chii. Follow your heart. I know how scary change can be and a big one like leaving home and going to University can feel like quite a sacrifice, but try not to let any worries keep you from your goal. Ganbatte, Chiima-chan!! Just know that from now on every time I pine for a new O!MT blog post that hasn't come I will be reminded how excited and proud I am of you.

    "Chiima is away in the world, busy making her destiny."
    "Soo desu ne... Though our Chiima-chan be gone, the picnic we shall carry on."
    "We shall indeed."
    "And should our Chiima-chan drop by, a plastic plate be set aside."
    "While that's a solid idea 'n' all, I gotta say I'm a little weirded out by the Seuss-ian rhyming thing you're-"
    "We shall set aside a blue one, we shall set aside a red, we shall set aside a green, a yellow, an orange plate and then, we shall let returning Chiima pick the hue she fancies best. We shall let returning Chiima pick when Chiima is our guest!"
    "Don't make me use the hose again."

  4. You're a great blogger but please don't rush back for our sakes - I started uni last year and I know that leaving home can be pretty overwhelming as a concept to deal with. Just take as much time as you need and we'll all celebrate your return :)

  5. Don't worry about taking a hiatus to "concentrate on studies." We completely understand and admire your sacrifice.

    We look forward to the future and the Chiimalicious greatness you shall bestow upon the world.

    Ganbacchae! Ganbattemasshoi!
