I'm going to admit something... I'm through with the 30 Day Challenge. I knew this would happen.... when have I ever finished a challenge on the blog? :) My blogging may become a little sporadic, but I just have so much to do. I want to make sure that I'm doing everything I can to focus on school, because, as much as we students often dislike to admit it, it's our calling. I need to give blogging a bit of a backseat for a while.
Granted, I'll be posting whenever I can! It simply won't be a primary focus. When I try to blog every day, I find myself getting bogged down and frustrated, and then I feel guilty when I don't.
I want to change the focus of my posts, too. I have an outlet now for all of my girly-focuses, so I want this blog to be something different. I want it to be about my daily life in Italy, because I know my family loves to read about that, but also, I want to get into things more deeply. Writing is something I love to do... and while I don't know if it will be something I do for a living, I still want to excel at it. I want to practice it, and I think this blog is the perfect way to do it.
One of the main reasons I'm ending the 30 Day Challenge is simply because it's not writing. I can post a picture and an intro, and that can be all the writing I've done for that day. I'm not saying that it's not fun and that I don't love reading and looking at others' challenges, but it's not for me.
In a nutshell, what I'm saying is I want to go back to where I started. When I would post things that I was thinking through. When I would post poetry. When I would post pictures of beautiful places I happened upon in this amazing city.
I hope you don't mind the change... but I know that I'm certainly excited about it! Please stay with me folks. I don't think you'll regret it.
