Hello everyone!

As you know, I love you all. I mean, I think that's kind of obvious, right? I go on and on about how much I love you guys all the time.

So, anyway. This post is to announce my week-long hiatus.

I know, I know. I don't really want to go on hiatus, but I need the break. This coming week I literally have seven IB/AP test sittings...that is more than one on some days. I have test sittings in the following weeks as well but nothing so demanding.

Basically, I just need some time off. I'm already stressed about studying and I really don't need more stress, you know? I thought about scheduling posts ahead of time since I normally do that anyway but not this week. I just need a break.

There won't be a new Magic Monday, so I'll be extending the current one for another week. I may or may not do a Waiting on Wednesday post this week because those are easy to put together. I plan to resume blogging regularly on ether Saturday or Sunday.

Thank you all for understanding.
