This is the dreaded post, guys. This is it.
So most of you know that I’ve recently graduated from high school. And some of you are already aware that I’ll be going on a hiatus soon. Why? I’m starting uni. I know most of you would be like, “But I’m in uni and I work and read and blog and study just fine.” And yes, I know that. But I’m going to a public uni. One literally notorious for screwing student’s brains over. It’s incredibly competitive and exhausting, but the result is totally worth it.
I’m planning to study Pharmacy. To go into Pharmacy school, I’m supposed to enter the faculty of sciences for one year, get a total of at least 12/20, and then take a Pharmacy entrance exam/admission test. I’ll be studying Biology my first year. The tough part about the whole thing is that my first year ends in June, I think, and I’m going to have to study during summer for the entrance exam. To enter Pharm school, I’m going to have to be among the top 40 students who took the exam. To be honest, the odds are high. And most of the students that don’t make it to the top 40 choose to redo their first year at the faculty of sciences (choosing Biology, Chemistry or Biochemistry) and also choose to redo the entrance exam, hoping to top that years’ students’ grades.
That’s why I think the hiatus is essential. I want to do my absolute best this year, and hopefully, hopefully, make it to the top 40 and get admitted to Pharm school. If that works, I’ll go back to reading and blogging as per usual. And my parents promised me a trip to Charleston, SC next year (bc YALLFEST!) if I pass. It’s definitely going to be a tough year. And honestly, passing the entrance exam from the first year isn’t guaranteed. So there’s a chance the hiatus will stretch into two whole years, but I don’t want to think about that right now. And honestly? Giving up isn’t an option. Becoming a Pharmacist is all I’ve ever wanted. And I’m planning to repeat that first year and the entrance exams twice and even thrice -until I get into Pharm school.
The only thing I’ll be asking of you guys is… please don’t forget me? 😂
No, seriously. I know I didn’t get to blog much this summer. But that was only because I was busy hanging out on Twitter. IT’S SO ADDICTING YOU CAN’T BLAME ME. This time, I’ll be mentioning names, because you girls truly made my
First and foremost, Laura @thebookcorps aka the girl I tortured the most this year because I created a Goodreads group and literally made her do all the dirty work (more like, made her do ALL the work, dirty or otherwise) but she’s never complained. My Twitter bestie. My English teacher -sometimes. My super supportive fairy godmother… If you don’t know her / follow her yet, please check out her blog. She’s incredible.
Jackie @toomuchofabooknerd… my one and only Warnette shipping companion. She’s hilarious. Understands my Warner obsession to no end. She’s always there to support any crazy decision I make, my writing-a-novel decision being one of many 😂💖 Here’s a link to her blog, make sure to check it out!
There’s Eva @brilliantlybookish. I guess she’s the youngest in the squad, but she’s the most inspiring and motivating person I’ve met. And she reads crazy fast!
Our one and only book princess comes next. Mandy @bookprincessreviews is the most active blogger I know. She’s created original books tags, weekly memes, she’s done collabs. I honestly don’t know how she does it. Also, she’s one of the most passionate Cresswell shippers out there, only preceded by me 😂💖
Then there’s Rendz @readingwithrendz. Because mentioning The Lunar Chronicles, or really just Thorne, demands her name coming to mind. A super enthusiastic TLC fan. She’s practically awesome in every way. Just downright amazing 💘
Lia @lostinastory, who I don’t even know how I came across but has become one of my favorite bloggers somehow. She tweets her future novel ideas on Twitter with awesome aesthetics AND THEY’RE SO MUCH FUN TO READ.
My blogging-friends, Sophie @blameitonchocolate, Justine @ishouldreadthat (I’m going to miss your cats sm 😭💘) May @foreverandeverly + her mangoes (who I didn’t know have gone on hiatus until now) Joana @bookneeders (le Orphan Black fellow enthusiast)
Some bloggers I’ve recently met on Twitter and Instagram but never actually got to interact with through blogging, like Kathy @booksandmunches, Eliza @duskangelreads, Fernanda @thewanderlustreader and Haley @beautifullybooks.
Okay, I know this sounds –and looks- like a goodbye. But it isn’t, I promise. I might post reviews every now and then, comment on some posts.. idk. I’ll be reading, but not as much as I used to. Definitely won’t be requesting any ARCs lol 😂
BUT, if you ever need someone to talk to, send me an email. I’m not even kidding. Head to my “contact” page and send me an email saying whatever the hell you want if you ever need someone to talk to. I may be on a blogging hiatus, but that doesn’t mean I won’t have time for you anymore.
Ummm this is the part were I lose my cool and throw a fit and start sobbing… But you don’t want to see that. Nope.
