An Explanation

I haven't been a particularly active blogger lately. You can probably tell that from the fact that it's now more than a week into April and my March wrap-up isn't up yet. And as much as I'd like this post to say that this was a short-term thing and that I'll be back to posting multiple times a week starting now, I can't do that.

Why not? There's the fact that I'm a lot busier right now than I thought I would be. I thought that second semester senior year was supposed to be easy, but there's just so much going on right now that I can't find the time I want to write new posts.

There's also the issue that writing is taking me a lot longer than it used to because of another fun development of the past few weeks: I have tendinitis. I injured myself playing piano right before my school band's competitive season. I'm supposed to be using my left hand as little as possible, which includes both piano and typing. I can type one-handed, but it takes me about three times as long as normal typing. Not as much time to write + slower typing = not very many posts.

I didn't think I'd need to make a post about this because the tendinitis was supposed to be cured in a week. I figured that I'd still be busy, but that the bigger of my two problems would be solved. But then I wasn't pain-free for a week and a half. And after another week, it got even worse than it was before. I'm going to be seeing a hand specialist soon, but I still have no idea how long it will last. That means I'll be typing slowly for the foreseeable future.

I'm still going to be as active in the blogging world as I can. That just probably won't be as much as before.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about the tendinitis! D: You should definitely put your health first - rest up and I hope the pain will be gone very soon. Good luck with school, and I'll continue to keep an eye out for your posts!

    1. Thank you! I've been resting a LOT - frustrating, but it'll be worth it.

  2. Oh no, I'm sorry about your hand! That's got to so annoying. You don't realize how much you use your hands until it's difficult and painful to use one of them. I hope you feel better soon!!!

    1. Thank you! There's definitely about a million things that I didn't realize required using two hands. I've managed to get creative and find ways to do some of them, though!
