This is my 1000th blog entry since I started ImaginarySunshine.com on October 27th 2007. There are 199 private entries (approved people only, but anyone is welcome to register) and (now) 801 public blog entries. I may write a little too much!
In recent months, I had slowed down a lot in terms of blogging. It took a backseat to everything else that was going on my life at the time (at first it was studying for finals/writing finals, then it was working full time and working on various site projects) and now that school’s started, I also find myself a little bit more concerned with courses and studying (and reviewing physics for the first time since early 2008…) than with keeping up with my blogs. I do plan on doing somewhat regular posts – I do go on Twitter pretty regularly, which is always a nice way to keep up with people.
School’s been going alright, I only just finished my first week and I went from taking 5 classes to 4. The one I dropped was being taught by a professor that I really do like and admire (I’d taken a course taught by her before). Due to the extra time commitment needed for that course (a field/in lab assignment regarding DNA sequencing that would have required extra time right around when I have scheduled midterms for all my other classes), I decided to drop it. While I would have liked to stay, I wasn’t going to at the expense of my other classes. On the brightside, I really like the other four classes that I am taking (entomology, ecology, oceanography and animal mechanics).
Being busy means that I stopped doing a lot of the things that I love doing – like crocheting, knitting, reading for pleasure, designing new jewellery, baking (and decorating what I’ve baked) and even doing the laundry (love it, I’m weirdly domesticated, I know). I have patterns that I’m still drafting (and some that I just really need to do a few finishing touches before publishing online). I have recipes I want to try, designs I have drawn out, a stack of books that I’ve bought that I haven’t read yet. However, I know that once I get into more of a routine when it comes to school, I’ll figure out time for doing all those things (hopefully soon!).
I’m rambling a bit… Which is actually quite fitting if you consider how most of my blog entries go, teehee. This is the longest amount of time that I’ve had a blog, I believe. I’d been blogging on and off almost pretty consistently since maybe 2003? I’m not sure anymore. Regardless, it’s nice to know that I can manage to keep a site on-going for so long!
Happy 1000th post to me!
