Hiatus?

Or actually, I don’t know. I just wanted to post to let you all know that posts might be a bit sporadic for a little bit. As of right now, I don’t have anything planned out – and all through January and February I had the month planned ahead! I have plenty of ideas, I just need to find the time and motivation to sit down and write them out.

I need to make sure I focus on my thesis because OH MY GOD THERE’S ONLY THREE MONTHS LEFT TO WRITE IT WHAT. I really have no idea where the time has gone here… the two years I spent working and saving to come here dragged by so slowly, and time has just FLOWN by since August, when I moved to the Netherlands.

Pretty much what I want to do right now.

I’ve also spent a lot of my time here just feeling like I shouldn’t be. I don’t feel smart enough to be here, I swear when everyone else talks in class they sound really intelligent, and I’m just sat there trying to think of something, anything to say without sounding stupid. So I think I need to work a lot harder than I am… I’ve pretty much spent this week finishing an essay that was due on Friday, and as soon as that was done letting myself have the rest of the week off – playing video games and binge watching TV shows. Oops.

So yeah, I will post when I feel like it, and keep the reviews coming as I’m trying to read as many of my review copies as possible. I got my Netgalley ratio up to 62%, which is the highest it’s ever been!

I’m not going anywhere, I just wanted to let people know what was going on, especially as I’m REALLY behind on comments – my own and those on other blogs! Sorry!

Also this.

  1. It is normal for most people to feel insecure when they dare to reach out and try change. I know it is hard to do but trust yourself and make those comments. Believe me their is no such thing as an unintelligent comment or question. Sometimes the seemingly unintelligent comment is the one that the instructor is looking for to spur class participation. Just go for it and you will do great and trust your inner feelings.

  2. Rinn, I feel this ALL THE TIME. As you know I need start looking for jobs and I don’t feel I can do anything, I don’t feel intelligent in class either. I think many people spend their lives feeling that they are BS-ing 🙂

  3. Your not alone in feeling you are not intelligent enough in class, I think everyone feels that, even the ones who seem to manage to ask all the questions!
    Just enjoy your time in Leiden, can’t believe that it has been nearly a year.
    And good luck with your thesis! I’m sure it will be amazing 🙂
