I don’t know what it is – maybe Tiny Furniture took more out of my than I thought – but this blog can go suck it for all I care. Actually, no, that’s not fair. I don’t really believe this blog should have to go suck anything. But I’ll tell you, for a while now, since about 12:00 AM, January 1, 2012, my time management skills as they apply to my hobbies and interests, have been all screwy. More specifically, I feel like I’ve barely been reading my precious books this year, at least not at the clip I normally manage, and when you consider that I actually feel guilty when I feel like I’m not reading enough (for the record, I’m a mentally ill idiot whose emotions are stupid), then maybe you can imagine my desire to change things.
All this is only to say that I’m going to take a “reading break” from the blog for a little while. Not long, probably, and if any screener obligations come along during that break then I will of course have to put the break on hold. But I really do want to get some kind of rhythm going in my reading. January was a pretty productive month here, February has, thus far, been less so, and if that’s going to be the case I might as well put that free time to good use. Once I get my reading legs back, though, things should be back to normal.
For those of you still unclear on what, exactly, I’m talking about here, I’ve included a picture of a book being read by a person:
This is exactly what I will be doing, precisely like that. Outfit, clothes, all of it. Hair. The whole deal.
