So, basically the point of today's post is that I am hopelessly behind.

On everything.

Most of you know me fairly well, so you probably know I hate being behind on anything and everything. It's one of the worst feelings ever. And I just…ugh. I need to calm down because I'm getting worked up and frustrated over being behind. I'm seriously ready to cry.

I love this whole blogging thing, I really do, but it's so stressful. I might be heading for a hiatus.

So there's no real post today, because if I don't catch up I'm seriously just going to lose it. So instead of writing a post for tonight, I'm going to be working on catching up so I can calm down and chill.

I love you people and have no idea why you put up with me, but thank you.

So, use today to check out a new blog! Find one in my blogroll or just find one on twitter or something. Or check out different pages of my blog that you've never visited before or something. Explore.

But do not get stressed like me. I am not having fun being stressed.

  1. Take your time! Your blog has tons of stuff on here to occupy us!! :)

  2. I'm with you there - today was my sad "I'm-too-busy-with-schoolwork" post. And I'm going college-visiting on Friday evening to Saturday evening. Stressfulness.

    I hope you enjoy your mini hiatus! And if it turns out to be much longer, I totally understand! I think we all do :)

  3. What Sallie said! Don't worry so much about it. Though, I do know what you mean. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging, but that's okay...happens to everyone :)

  4. I feel like I need to send you some chocolate now. Don't stress! It's not healthy. Go workout or something. :)
    xoxo Ems

  5. We all get behind sometimes and that panic monster comes roaring to life. Just breathe, relax, and get caught up maybe even take a day away from the computer and do something for yourself. It will all sort itself out eventually :)

  6. Aaaw Annabananagirl! So sorry you're stressed out. I totally hear you on being behind and blah-blah-blah. I hope you're able to catch up soon!!! It's not fun to be stressed out. If you need any help, like having your random Inky friend popping in for a Guest Post while you take a day break to get stuff done let me know! I'm here to help! Even if you just need a virtual hug and bowl of comfort ice cream.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE to yourself!

  7. Try not to stress hon. Remember, this is supposed to be fun. I am actually probably taking a break in March with the exception of blog tours and other things I have scheduled. I will post reviews and stuff, but not as frequently. I need the down time to catch up I think.

  8. OH NO! I hope you get caught up soon! Really, I think a ton of people are falling behind more and more because blogging is starting to just grow and grow as a responsibility to EVERYONE, and more people are starting to go "AHHH I AM SO CONFUZZLED AND FRAZZLED!"

    BUT. Annabelle, I LOVE YOU TO PIECES! And I hate it when you're so sad and frustrated D: Feel better soon and eat lots of red velvet cupcakes! We all love you and blogging is done on YOUR schedule not ours :)
