TSS (May 30): Summertime blahs

The Sunday Salon.com Things I feel like doing: listening to wizard rock.
Things I don’t feel like doing: blogging, writing reviews, reading books (ironically enough).

So basically this summer is turning out like last summer, when I barely blogged at all and one time entirely forgot to post anything for about a week. Huzzah! Or not. Summer just makes me want to laze around and surf the web/watch movies/not do anything like “work” (although I still do have to work) and that mindset isn’t very conducive to Getting Stuff Done. But I don’t want to fall too behind on my reviews (again) so I’m setting myself a schedule: write one review a day. And that’s it. I can do that, surely! Right? Right.

Ironically enough, as soon as I wrote that I decided to a) get away from the computer and b) turn off the TV so I can read without any distractions. Now if I could just figure out a way to write a review without any distractions, either…

  1. I read both of the books about Adrian Mole that you mentioned. I can’t say I loved them as much as many others seem to do.

    I hope you have a great summer, even if it means I’ll have to miss reading your blog posts for a while 🙂

    1. I was actually pretty disappointed with the Adrian Mole books, because I was expecting them to be this great hilarious thing and they just…weren’t. D:

      And thanks! My post will probably pick up again in July, when I’m doing my summer class. For some reason doing school stuff also motivates me into doing blog stuff– probably because I’m trying to procrastinate on the school stuff!

  2. Summer is becoming the same way for me too. Last summer I read so many books and this summer all I want to do is lay around and nap. Oh well. It’s better than exams and homework! 😉

    Happy reading!

  3. I tend to get the same way in the summer — I’d much rather just laze around than do any real work (reading or blogging or anything else). I’m hoping I’ll settle into a schedule soonish, but who knows. Good luck!

    If you are looking for more Harry Potter-ish distractions, look for “A Very Potter Musical” on YouTube. Hilarious.

    1. Really, I think I need turning my brain on for school makes my brain turn on for other stuff, like blogging. As soon as school is gone, the rest of my motivation to do stuff goes as well! Not good, lol.

  4. Lazing around is what summer is for! I say read as much as you want and review when you feel like it 🙂

    Btw, I’m a newcomer to your blog, but I’m enjoying it immensely. Love your conversational style of writing!
