Taking a break.
I’m sad to have to announce that, basically, I have a had a really bad week this week: and it’s only Tuesday! I’ve experienced a series of personal setbacks and disappointments, including the fact that I didn’t receive any of the limited funding available for my PhD course. This (and other upsetting Uni-related issues) means I may have to rethink the whole PhD route. I am battling with a strange recurring depression which makes me a tad irrational, and this has got me into more than a little trouble recently. I am also moving house this weekend, which promises to be stressful and time consuming!
Basically, it seems a good idea to take some time off from, well, everything. My students are coming up to their Easter holidays so I won’t be teaching… I also need to get away from University and that whole tangle of issues. I have been trying to carry on as normal but the thought of a sunny ‘Things I Love Thursday’ post this week is a bit too much. So I’ll be taking a bit of a hiatus from the blog, just for a week or two until I sort my head out. I’ll still be posting the Featured Poet posts and hopefully a little bit extra here and there, and I will be back in due course. Apologies all, and watch this space!
