It has been a long few weeks with no real blogging. The transition back to school has been harder than I thought it would be and the one thing I had to let go was my website. I don’t know if it was a sign from people up above or a message to me, but this week I fractured my ankle and have to wear a boot for 4-6 weeks.
This basically means I need to slow down significantly, can’t drive anywhere and can’t play tennis. Here is where I think it’s a sign. Now I have all the time in the world to blog. I will still have classes but I do need a way to relieve my stress until I get better so I’m going back to my roots: writing. It feels a little like starting from the very beginning. I need to come up with content, write it and start posting again.
I do want to find a way to make my blogging work with all of my school work after the boot comes off. In the meantime though, there is no better opportunity to write than while I need to ice my elevated ankle and can’t be hopping around everywhere. It will be a very big struggle getting from place to place since I can’t drive myself anywhere but it will be an exercise in willpower and I think I’ll need to start asking people for help. I am very terrible at asking people for help. Most of Thursday night I hopped around my house instead of putting on the boot or asking my roommates.
I know I need to be less stubborn because it will only make it heal faster and make the recovery go faster. This will be teaching me a lot of things I am terrible at so like I said, maybe it’s a message.
