An Explanation for the Unwanted Hiatus

Ah.  It’s been a while, hasn’t it?  The Heart of Darkness review is still sitting in the drafts section, but I haven’t got the motivation to continue writing it.  Lately, I’ve been going through bouts of anxiety because of the stress of assignments and exams, and there are a few personal things going on in my life that have have made me an overthinking, neurotic mess.  I keep trying to push myself to write the review, but I don’t think it’s going to happen (YET!)

Reason for that is: I had to read this for my Modernist Literature subject and while I do get the sentiment behind the story, and the context, I just can’t be arsed to write a detailed review on it because I’m just not really into it enough to write a review, and my thoughts on the book have gone stale (sorry).  We read T.S. Eliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, and while I am biased since I love Eliot, I kinda want to write a review on his collections first, and depending on that, I may re-read HoD to refresh my sentiments and finish writing my review on this.  I’ve also got new books that I’ll read during the holidays and post my reviews on them.  I’m gonna try and make this blog work, guys!

Anyway, to make up for the lack of content being posted here, I’ll publish a short, simple poem that I wrote in February about the anxieties of being alone in a city of struggle.  So, without further ado, watch this space and see a poem published next (after I find a royalty-free image to accompany it).
